Yes you are correct.     I would like to find some for the stands of that era.    W9-650. The look similar but larger diameter.  

#6788 fits super C thru 450

#9042d fits W9 thru 650 wheat lands and high clear tractorsWith the 20” wheels , the smaller weights are easy to find around here , the larger 9042 are much harder to find.

What tractor is that wheel on in the picture?  Looks like a solid wheel.

That’s my 560D. Just leaned it against there for the picture.

They were advertised as Cub Cadet weights. But when I saw them in person  I knew they weren’t . Seller realized it also after someone passed on them. I also knew they were a lot more uncommon than Cub weights so I took them anyway. Don’t fit anything I have. So far.

6788D weights 42.5 lbs & fits 16” rims.  Farmall type tractors are not that common out west I did not know a lot about them.  Had gone to couple rpru's & noticed front wheel weights on them.  Was in southern Ontario on holidays,  found a set of front wheel weights in Buffalo & a set north of Detroit.  Picked set in Buffalo & headed for Detroit.  Hindsight should drove thru Cleveland,  crossing from US to Cdn back to US was bad idea.  US border guards could not believe I was going to ball games & buying old tractor parts.  Image the time travel was their reason for concern as was 4 hr trip from NY via ON to MI.  Car got ripped apart,   mirrors on wheels,  dogs,  etc.  Got to answer the same 7 questions times over a coarse of 2hrs.  It was an eye opening experience for this farm kid from Alberta.  Finally made to north of Detroit & picked up the other set of weights.  Got them sent back home.  Went to put them on the Super W6 with 18" rims & they don't fit.  Started searching the net & learned what these weights are for.

9042D weights 73 lbs & fits 18” & bigger.  Which includes Super W6,  W400 & W450’s.  Saw these weight on Yesterday tractor classifieds for sale.  This time I was prepared with part number,  cardboard cut out the 18" hub with holes punched out.  Also traced out the 16" rim weight so I didn't buy more of the smaller weight.  Drove from Alberta to Iowa to pick them up & made a holiday of it.

IHBowden,  how many 9042 do you have?

I’ve had three sets but only have one set right now,  I think I have about 15 sets of the smaller 6788 weights.

IH Cub Cadet Plow Day #1 hosted by Mr. PLOW and his Dad, BIG STEVE, I saw a Cub Cadet that had a pair of the 9042 H/M front weights bolted onto the outside of the 12" rear wheels. Neat way to get 42# on each rear wheel instead of paying the CRAZY high price for 2 sets of 26# Cub front wheel weights aka Cub Cadet rear wheel weights.

I have two sets of 4 bolt 240-560 wheel weights in surplus currently. I was taking them to the consignment sale at loyalsock show but rain prevented me from being able to unload them there
