We had our local plow day on Sunday, I took my Super MTA, with the 3x16, 2pt hitch plow, but i got a slight creeky noise, in the left rear wheel. It isn't the wheels weights shifting, the wheel clamp on the axle are tight, there's no grease dripping out where there that felt seal is. I tighten the three bolts under the tractor that the drawbar or 2 pt pulls from. I am stumped other than i got the outer bearing going out ??

The tightness may be a false indicator of clamping pressure. This includes both the rim to wheel clamps, and the axle to wheel clamps. I would loosen each, lubricate the threads, and retorque. If you want to find the issue, put a dab of fingernail polish on each clamp where it touches the rim or axle. Let it dry for an hour and drive it. Cracked polish is a loose fastener. Jim

I had this happen on a 460. I noticed when I washed it the creek went away for a half hour or so. It was rim creeking on wheel even though bolts were tight. Spray some soapy water see if it goes away for a few min anyway. Ive been told to get a few JD clamps they are slightly bigger and they will tighten them up.

Take the bolts that hold the center to the rim loose and oil the threads and tighten again.

If you loosen bolts and oil them and tighten them down you will have to retighten them several times after use. I use an 8 foot bar to tighten mine and had to check them and tighten them up after pulling it.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Common issue with all attached clamp rims. The drive lugs on the rims and the clamp both get worn from fretting over a long time period. The easiest way is to build up the mating surface on the attached clamp about a sixteenth of an inch. You need to be good with a grinder to get an original profile but that should tighten the rims to the wheel and avoid creaking. I had this happen on a 1066 years ago and I bought new clamps and built up the rim surface to the original profile. That did the trick.
