Duel wheel adapters/wheel weights

Recommended Posts

Here you are James :)

 

The basic duel adapters are very easy to make. I can't remember the measurements as they were made many years ago, but allow an inch gap between wheels, so take that into account when you do the measuring..

The basic adapter was made from a strip of thick-ish steel rolled round so it fit's tightly on the inside lip of the wheel..

All it needs are four long coach bolt's to go through the four wheel weight holes to hold the second wheel in place :)

I did take things a stage further by turning the duel wheel adapters into duel wheel wheel weights.

 

Add a base.

A "notch" for the tyre valve.

Four tubes were added for the coach bolts to run through.

Then the other side was capped off.

A hole was the cut one side.

And the adapter/weight was filled up with concrete using a lamp shade as a funnel :D

Once the concrete had set, the metal that was cut out to fill it was welded back on..

 

Two Duel wheel adapters/wheel weights :D

As fitted with only one wheel..

Just undo the nuts, slide the second wheel on, and put the nuts back on :D

Your welcome James, one thing I should of mentioned is don't make the adapters too tight a fit in the wheel or they will be a right pain to get back off again... You can guess how I found that out :D

The dual set up with weights certainly looks the part but I would guess could be a bit hard on the half-shafts particularly if used with that blade on the front?

I never has any problems with half-shafts even when using the blade very hard pushing dirt about and that was when the Wh still had it's original trans with 1 inch diameter shafts!

I should of guessed that :D
