X2.

Picture of my 756 diesel for inspiration. 

Once you have a set of split weights on, you can install the full round weights.  You can see them on the picture of my 1206.

it depends if the tractor was originally equipped with 15.5 -38s I think you can start with those if it had 34 in  tires  you may need to use a split weight first

Not really I attached 3 sets of the one piece weights  on a 1086 no problem

You *might* get by with that on a 706 but a full weight will not sit right on a 1086 casting unless it's an aftermarket weight.

I've seen a lot of tractors with the solid single even as the first one.  Our 1066 and 856 both did, and I think the 1456 does too.  Might be Rowe Foundry weights, but I'm pretty sure cast with IH numbers on them.

Same here.  Have had a problem with some half weights on a wedge lock wheel but a simple spacer or nut on bolt solves the problem.

thanks for all the feedback / I went ahead and bought the full solid weights pictured / the guy had over 60 IH tractors from Hs to 1568 and 56 series / many with first weight being a solid weight / no half weights / just have to make sure dished out side faces away from hub and that it is aligned correctly with axle

A LOT of 56 -series tractors had white painted rear wheel weights. Personally, I REALLY like the white wheel weights,  installed my first pair on the '39 H about 1967.  I think each weight out-weighed ME but I got them mounted without any help! That same pair of weights is still on the SH,  not a whole lot of white left on them  53 years later.
