I am restoring a Farmall model A. I would like to know what is the correct way to mount the rear rims. valve stems in or out.I would like to mount stems out but the it seems like the center and weights stick out way to far. I could really use some advice from you tractor guys. I have enclosed some picture. Thanks

I'm not near my A as of right now. But if you have the wheels off for any reason make sure you get them back on the side that they are supposed to be on. one wheel is pressed steel and only about 1/4' thick. That goes on the left side. The other wheel is cast steel and is about 1 1/2" thick and goes on the right side. This is to balance the weight of the off set tractor. Good Luck

No correct way it all depended on how wide they wanted the tractor to sit for different jobs. Centers can also be flipped to space the wheel in or out more

Don't own an "A" Farmall, but would not the heavier wheel go on the left side because the driver is on the right side.

The thicker wheel goes on the right side of the tractor.

MtMan has it. Cast hub goes on the right to off set the engine/trans on the left.

If you have them on the closest setting turn the valve stems out. In can drag on the tractor and become damaged.
