Come over to my acreage. I will take the front wheel weights and additional front weights off the Cub. You will then be welcome to climb the hill behind the shop with the Cub.

Darn hill rises 120 feet from gate entrance to center of the 37 acres.

Flat landers are those folks who call a minor elevation change a hill.

Can't imagine my Cub without front weights. The weighted f/h 38 disk or the home built 8 foot section harrow will easily lift the front with clutch release. Would add more if I had them.

In my situation I removed my front wheel weights because I do a lot of turning mowing around old apple trees and the steering is noticably easier and I only haul light yard debris.
The main reason I'm replying here is that I wanted to point out that I discovered considerable corrosion under my wheel weights. The rest of wheel was fine. The corrosion was so bad I replaced both wheels. I didn't much like the thought of front wheel failure while moving on the tractor. But then my cub although runs great is still in its unrestored work clothes.
