PSA: Check Your Wheel Center to Rim Bolts

Postby Urbish » Tue Mar 13, 2018 5:03 am

If you've never removed your wheel center to rim bolts, now might be a good time to check them out. I removed the wheels on my B to do some transmission work and noticed that one of the wheel center to rim bolts appeared slightly loose. I went to tighten it and it snapped in half. The result is below. Needless to say, I will be replacing ALL of these. I can only imagine if they sheared off while this tractor was towing a heavy load up-hill, was on a trailer running down the interstate, or had one of my kids driving it. :shock:
