That's called the "belt and suspenders" approach. Not going anywhere.

That upper weight looks like it has an extra hole?

The extra hole appeared late in IH production, can't remember when

 Not sure the reason for it being there.

I have never seen the scab bolts installed like that. As already mentioned, the jam nut holds the bolt to the weight, 1 nut and washer holds the next weight, two bolts per half weight. 

I always just used all thread on my own tractors.

13 inch bolts hold 5 on a 666. 3 circles then 2 sets of splits. Then fluid in tires of course. I like a heavy loader tractor.

Alot of rolling resistance there if you use fluid too , Fluid is dead around here all my ag tire dealer does is pump it out now no one uses it here anymore its all cast weights

Have found many different styles of big aftermarket weights at Colfax tractor parts. Usually in the fall when I'm chasing combine parts and don't have time to worry about wheel weights. Maybe I'll get some pics one of these days.

I put em back like I found em.
 It’s pretty obvious now that installing weights on a tractor is not an exact science.

I now know there is more then one way to achieve the end result.

 For my self I’m not going to change them and I can use the tractor knowing dam sure that they won’t come loose and fall off on my way to the cafe. 
Sounds like you can just use some number nine wire, duct tape , and gorilla glue if that’s what you have to work with . 
After I’m gone and the next guy becomes the new Custodian he can put em any way he seams fit.

Who does you painting?  What I've seen of your 560 and 1066 they are pretty nice.

Just for reference, here are a couple pictures. One shows split weights with the notch in them to fit the wedge lock wheels. Next is trying to show the notched set way on the inside, as the rest of those 8 sets do not have the notch. Last is how we install. First 6 sets are with all thread, remaining 3 sets are factory IH bolts. We have one piece weights that have the notches in them as well, but they are Taylor foundry, not IH. Just info for reference for those who maybe never seen the notched weights.

Now that's alot of weights! On singles? Am I seeing that right? Don't see eyelets to clamp duals on. An inexperienced driver could do some damage...

We only run those weights from fall to spring. Just for winter conditions of ice and snow mostly. Those weights all come off when the frost goes out.

Better keep an eye on your rims I've seen them crack out from having too much cast weight

I used the full weights on the inside and the half ones on the out side on both the 1466 and 1486 worked great. Weights originally came of 706D. Half weights look cooler on the outside

It's not as wide as 118 inch axles, and only one weight past the end of 100 inch axles. Looks more intimidating than it is. If you can't drive that good you have no business driving at all, right? :D

You can be the best operator in the world, but if the door is only 96 inches wide... :)

Drive faster and with the extra width you can create your own larger door. :D

Usualy lowers profile of tractor and gives it a swept back look until you back out.
