The wheel weights that came with the Suburban have cracked around the bolt holes and are slowly losing their contents as we use the tractor. Has anyone tried patching the cracks long enough to pour concrete/mortar into them? I figure that once it cures it should remain in place and we should be able to remount them. I'm thinking it should work and be a lot less $$ than a new set that will eventually do the same thing.
Unless someone has a set of iron ones they wish to donate!!:smilewink:??

I bought some two part plastic epoxy to fix some things, haven't used it yet. LOL It might hold things together till the concrete sets up. I wouldn't use mortar, too crumbly.
