You mean spacers for duals not pie weights?

As stated they are for power adjusted rims. When mounted and PA rims are sucked all the way in they will keep the tires from hitting the fenders. The dual adapter plate look like this when mounted on my 950. Good luck with your search cause they are hard to find.

My first experience with these spacers was on a 960 with a mounted corn picker with 14.9-28 in wheels. I have a problem seeing how these special mounting flat ended bolts hold a countersunk wheel on to mount duals. It would seam that the special wheel weight mounting bolts would be the proper thinks in this case

The red ones are for the 960 with mounted corn picker to get more space between the picker and the tire

Thanks, Kirk. I did not know that.

I believe that I have one set like yours in the photo, maybe two. I'll have to check.

I guess they could be used for that. However as has been stated, their primary purpose was to space early power adjust wheels so that they could be spun all the way in without hitting the fenders on all purpose tractors.

Grandpa had a 960. I don't know how many times I mounted the 2 row corn picker on that tractor. The PA wheels were dished out, never had spacers and had plenty of clearance.

I had an early 4000 row crop with a 602 mounted picker. Wheels were dished out with no spacers. Worked well there too.

I've never seen a '55 to '64 row crop with these spacers on it. If they came that way from the factory or dealership these spacers would have been strictly optional equipment.

I wouldn't want to use them with a mounted picker. I have seen that 4 inch spacer in two peaces on an 861, plowing.

I've never seen the red pictured spacers on a 9 series tractor, picker or not.

I have seen, yet another, design of wheel spacers on 9 series tractors with mounted pickers. These spacers were about 2" wide and used different, longer adapter bolts to space the wheels (PA or 6 bolt, don't know) out for fender clearance.

I had a set of these with the longer adapter bolts but sold them about 5 years ago to someone in OH who needed them to mount a picker to a 9 series tractor (don't know if PA or 6 bolt rims). I bought them on ebay about 10-12 years ago from a dismantler who told me that they were removed from a 9 series tractor with picker (again, don't know what type or rims).

I've got the 4 inch ones on my 961 and they were used with my 602 picker it saved me reversing the wheels.

Have those spacers on my 801 with PA wheels, as for as I know it came that way, everything is original but the fuel tank and tires.

We have a set or (similar) bolted to a 8n that had an extremely deep dish 15" wheel for turf tires that came from a golf course.

I may be way off base with this but I have a couple of sets of these extensions and just with some rough measuring I don't believe that the studs on the axle are long enough to go through the wheel disk and the flange of the extension to make me comfortable that the studs won't strip out and the wheels could come off. Mind you I have never tried to bolt up duals even though I would love to take a tractor to a show dueled up. Just my 2 cents worth Greg NE

When I installed 14.9 rear tires on a 861 with the spin-out rims, I used brackets to keep the tires away from the fenders, but still had the rim centers almost all the way back in.

I've used them for many years on my 961 with 602 picker with no trouble.
