PostSubject: Sears SS/16   8/3/2010, 11:18 am

I figured I'd make my first post on here about my Suburban.

I have a 1974 Sears SS/16 Twin. It has a 16hp Onan BF MS engine. For the upcoming 4h Pull in a little less than 2 weeks, I will be running a set of Sears cast iron wheel weights on the outsides of the rims, and a set of IH Cub Cadet cast iron wheel weights on the insides of the rims. I have a 46" dozer blade mounted on the front with a minimum of 40 pounds on it. I can add more as necessary. I plan to drill out my front rims and put front wheel weights on as well. I am running stock 23x9.5-12 Sears turf tires.

I do believe that thems the stock 25ish or their 35ish id have to weigh my sears weights again.....Anyways their the stock cast iron wheel weights for a sears.....around 25 or 35 pounds, and they take a 1/2in bolt how ever long to set them on your wheels...I like all thread and then cut to length!
