I was poking about the net a while ago and found a thread on front end weights, with a nice photo of a
Ford tractor - OHV, maybe a 601? - with two V8-style cylinder
heads bolted on the front end for ballast. I forgot mark the spot,
and have been unable to find it again. If anyone knows where it is
I'd appreciate having a link to it.

Had an 8n in the shop last week with a man hole cover chained under her front axle for weight, so goes to say anything handy and heavy will work just fine, but inner wheel weights are easier on things like spindle bushings, thrust bearings and pivot pins and bushings, food for thought

The owner should turn those heads around and bolt an intake manifold between them just like it would be on a block. A FE intake is a huge chunk of cast iron.
