Can someone post a picture of the correct rear wheel weights for a bolens ridemaster.  I would like to find some, but want to make sure I know exactly what they look like.

 

thanks

They were used on Bolens equipment from the 40's to early 60's

Very close ,but subtle differences, The Bolens, or FMC, or even the later no name ones all are the same, most are right around 50#

Making a mold would not be to difficult if I wanted to remelt some of my lead to make a couple or even make some out of concrete. I think that much lead would weight more than 50 pounds.
