Front tire heigth

Postby Dusty B » Tue Oct 10, 2023 7:57 pm

Is there supposed to be a difference in the front of a B tractor depending on whether it has a single front tire or twin tires? Mine sits 4" higher with the twin tires rather than a single tire?? Same back tires!

The A and B parts manual tells the sizes of front tires they came with, you could check and see if your tractors have the original sizes.
The manual says there were 2 sizes of single front tires available, 6.00 x 12" or 7.50 x 10"
The double tires were 4.00 x 15"
Below is the A and B parts manual, if you don't have it. The wheels are shown on page 108, you can find the tire sizes by looking at the next few pages after page 108 at the number of the wheel in the pic. Maybe you knew already. :) ... index.html

What size are your back tires? That could affect how it sits.
