Question about wheel weights
Posted October 04, 2011 - 08:16 PM
I still need to blast and paint them, just put them on to get a feel of how I liked them. Also still need to mount up the rear tires, just waiting for it to be a little warmer to paint.
So, are these John Deere starter weights? They are about 50#, and under the white paint, there is a layer of red and yellow under that.

I have yet to put OEM weights on anything I own. I think the Sears weights were a little different. They may be IH weights too.
They aren't Cub weights I'm almost certain. I've never seen cub weights this shape and those weigh in at 25# or so. I would say for sure they are JD weights by the shape, but I thought JD weights has casting marks that would id them. Maybe a JD guy will be along.

They sure do look like Deere weights though.
But they could also be Sperry-Rand (New Holland)(Ariens) if they have the Cross Logo on the back.

John Deere did make weights like this, and had the part number cast into the back side of the weight, along with the JD stamp. The casting number would be M11028M. Deere did make a later style weight, same size and look, but the number wasn't cast into the weight. It was stamped in black ink. I think this is the type you have, which means, when you strip the paint off of them, you won't see the stamped mark.
I wasn't aware they had a newer style with an ink stamp. That would maybe explain why no casting marks.
