I am putting together a plan to rebuild a cut-off set of wheels. The pneumatic rims are thoroughly trashed and would need to be replaced anyway. I have more than enough front cut-offs with tires, so I don't need another set. I am short on usable rears since the 36" deep center rim is unavailable. So, I am thinking of rebuilding a set of cut-offs back to their steel origins. For measurements, I am looking for the width of the steel band, the inner diameter, and the thickness of the band. And maybe a photo of the style these measurements came from. I do know there are a true variety of rear steel wheels. I am looking for the ones that have a simple flat plate, not the rolled edge variety since I can't replicate that. I have ideas on replicating the spokes with the swaged 'foot' on the end, then riveting it to the original center.

by the time you waste money on materials and spend tht etime doing it, you'd be better off and money ahead to just buy a set of rear steel. rears for F-20's arent too bad to find and arent near as expensive as fronts are

I was hoping someone would offer the dimentions too. I was thinking about doing that too and wasting time on hobby stuff is okay. Mine is kind of a yard ornament and I really did not want to spend to much money on it.cleddy

The rims on your Regular look good. Here is the F-20 with the rims I am thinking of reworking. As you can see, the rims are totally unusable.


With the cost of tires and such, steel wheels look attractive for a 'toy' tractor.

Also, do you have any information on the implement parts bolted to your Regular? I am a sucker for mounted equipment on these old tractors.

I think a guy I know has some steel wheels off his F-20 which I can measure. He is not using them or plan to but he will not part with them either. He said they ride awful rough so If I make some smoother might be best so moving is not so difficult.
At the moment I can not explain the attachments but we have pictures of some of them. This Regular has a belt pulley and my Dad had fitted it with a cable lift that involved Model T car differentials and a mecanical lift like plows have and with it ran a front loader,post hole digger and cultivator,maybe a mounted plow all with a reversible cable winch on the right side in front of the right tire .All just memories at this point.cleddy

This is the type of wheel I am thinking of:




Looks to be a simple flat band, maybe 1/4" thick by 8" or 9" wide. Angle iron lugs look simple also.

I just realized I have an original Manual for our Regular with the Dimentions and assembly drawings you were asking for. The Rear Wheel less lugs is 40" x 6"(regular tread) front wheel is 25" x 4" with 2" skid ring. There were some special options avaialble with Dim's for them also.
I could scan the pages to Your E-mail If you send your address but since I notice on old posts no one seems to go back and look at them so just as soon not waste the time to post them if no one looks at them again.cleddy

I would appreciate the info. My email address is jhgold (at) stic (dot)net.
I can make the guess that the thickness is 1/4". If I go with 3/8", that would be getting pretty stiff (and expensive).
