Re: 255 merc excessive ring end-gap?

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

Great picture of the marking, Bob. So, now we know that Goodyear made some of them and from the width, they would be 7.50 x 15 LT tires.

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

Did Ford have a 1 ton, in '37? I only see Model 77 Commercial and Model 79, 1 1/2 Ton Trucks as listings. The 79's came with 5 lug Budd wheels.

Re: My junkyard find

I use them for tractor, jack stands, both front and rear, by welding 4" channel to the top. The Ford tractor, rear housing, is also tapered but, as said, you space them out.

This is my SW #2 turret lathe. It is much smaller than the WWII #2 WS turrets and I've never seen another like it. I did some online searches to try to find out any info on and nothing came up.
