Made to go inside the wheel.

Any stamping numbers?

 

Home cast?

I think possibly Case tractors, that cut out goes around the axle, but I'm guessing.

I was thinking inside wheel weights.  Not sure there's enough clearance though.     Haven't found any numbers.         Look a little too neat to be homemade I think

Don't let that fool you.

Lots of us would make something neater in appearance if constructed ourselves for several reasons including having more time to put into it or being more caring because it's "yours".

 

 

Have you measured the o.d. ?

inside rear wheel weight doesn't make sense? I don't understand how it would  mount to the wheel and the hub?

Might not be for a horse.

Might even be for a larger tractor's front wheel.

Or another make that has a different set up.

Only guessing....

Outside diameter is a full 12".  Doesn't seem to fit the wheel very well because it doesn't go inside that first lip . Would need to be no more than 11 1/2".    Width of slot is 2 1/4".    Weights are 2" thick

That being the measurements I'd say they're for a larger wheel for sure.

I've seen weights for the front of farm tractors that were a 16" wheel that were around that size.

The Farmall Cub front wheels are 12", so the same wheel weights as the Cub Cadet which I have on the inside of my 520H...

Thanks for the pics Mr hillbilly.   Those weights must measure .          11 1/2" since they fit down in that first lip.   .  Maybe I could trade these for some WH weights if I could figure out what they're for .   I definitely think they're inside wheel weights for something

I would definitely agree on the large scale weight. That little groove and tab is made to interlock with the opening offset. So when the scale is being use the weights don't shift and fall off the weight hanger.

Woah.   Hold on there a minute fellas.    You guys are just plain out missing the obvious here.   To the trained eye, it's quite easy to see they are from the 1970s and came from a VERY heavy duty PAC MAN unit.   

 

You are welcome.

 

Cheers!

You are close Dave.

 

Very close.

 

 

They are in fact a Pac Man archeological relic from the 5th century bc.

 

The Chinese had just learned to melt iron (Western man wouldn't pull it off for nearly another 1600 years) and were enjoying some downtime by creating a new game.

Traditionally played by fairly strong folk. One ran along a line of people holding sticks or reeds and tried to stuff or "pack" them in the "mouth" of the game piece.

 

They were of course being chased by those trying to empty the game piece.

 

A win was achieved as we all know by making it back to the goal.

 

A more modern version of the game was produced in 1980 by neighboring Japan and was seen from the side in 2D so the sticks look like dots.

I may have fabricated parts of the story.

Wow you guys are very knowledgeable. As rare as those are I think they're worth upwards of a grand.    One of you smart guys should jump on that deal before I take them to the pawn stars in Vegas. Now... where did I put my scissors...... cause I'm ready to cut this thread ✂️
