Looking to save some weight by using a different wheel rim combo in the front. What else would mount to the spindle? Has the factory set up. Looking for something with a solid stamped rim if possible.

Later 730 and 830's had 6 bolt front wheel and hub. I know they interchange with that spindle.

I doubt you would save 10# with the 30/70 series setup. The hubs were rally HD, plus you have the weight of a solid pressed steel wheel, verses a rim with 4 lugs.

I appreciate the reply from a Case expert. 10# off the front is the same as adding 90-100# in the back when pulling.

Keeping the front end on the ground keeps the drawbar level which keeps the skid up and easier to pull. 200# of weight on my L on the front axle made it go farther than 200 on the back.

I'll agree with you as long as the front is coming up you don't need to lose weight up front. I need to lose weight up front to get the front up so it will float in the lighter classes. It's got that big honk'n power steering box in the front.

Swap in a manual steering unit from a 400. Also, the 400 narrow front is lighter than the later ones. I have a narrow front from a 930 with 6 bolt hubs and an extra set of hubs in the shop. I used to pull my 1030 with a narrow front until I got tired of farming with it like that and rebuilt the wide front.
