Not sure of the size looking at the picture, but it looks like it could be the size used for a 60 hp flathead.

Re: Wide Five Spare Tire Holder

Nope. Sorry, you are correct -- the bolt that goes through to the box is correct as your picture shows.
Yours does look like it is not of original manufacture.

Re: Need advice on my 37 rims & tires

You will have to change the brake drums and brakes to run those modern rims.
Stick with the original rims and hubcaps--- the vehicle looks great the way it is and enjoy it.

Re: Need advice on my 37 rims & tires

6.00 - 16 are the proper size for the 85 hp vehicle.
If it is a 60 hp, then 5.50 - 16 are the size.
And yes, those are the correct rims and hubcaps.
Nice original looking Tudor Slant.
