806 rear wheels

Recommended Posts

Dad's 806 needs rear tires. Has 18.4-34s with fluid so I'm guessing by the outward appearance that they're shot. Also the cast center on one side has a Crack from the center outward. They are the clamp style.I'd like to go to a 38 inch rim and tire and wedge lock center since this is cracked. I was wondering what other tractors would be the right size donors. This tractor has 3 and1/4 inch axles. I'd like to find another tractor for parts. Apparently the 1086s are 3 1/2s. What others would work? Thanks, Robert

I'm assuming you want the cast center with 12 holes not the big six holes like the early 706-806. I might not get all of these but you can find, 706, 806, 1206, 756, 856, 1256, I think the 766, 966, and some or all 1066. There are some 86 series, but then the casting has fewer holes.

Unless you are running band duals, I wouldn't be afraid of the clamp style hubs. As said, you probably won't want the light hubs from 706 as they were intended for 15.5 tires or smaller, although many are used on bigger tires. For wedge locks you need to go 56 series or newer, and the 86 and 88 series used a different style- much easier to find if you can tolerated the looks. Aside from those already mentioned, clamp style can be found on 786, 886, 986, 3088, 3288, 3488, and 3688. Newer wedge licks can be had from all 2+2 models as well

Here is another option...get the duals off a 4366 or 4386. They have a axle hub clamp with a flat plate 9? bolt rim. It would look different, but should work fine. My 4386 has 18.4R34 tires--all 8 wheels are the same. I'm pretty sure the axles are 3 1/4 (986 rear ends)--I can measure if you are interested.

Whatever you do, get rid of that fluid!!! I had a 806 without any weights on the back and it pulled nice.

I would just find another 34" clam style casting then buy a set of 34" to 38 " step up rims. 34" casting can usually be had cheap and the step ups can be found used if you don't want to buy new.

Dad has a 1256 with 38s and 1000-16s and I really like the way that looks. My 34 rims are weak so I need to do something. A 1256 for parts would be the best if I could find one close. I saw an 86 with a smashed cab while on the road to a campsite last summer but it looked like 20.8s so probably a 10 or 14. Grandpa bought this new in 65, it'll be a restoration project as I have time.

Never liked the 38 inch tires on a 806. Dogged them down to where you had to turbo them to get that zip back. We never had power complaints on 806 until we started to sell them with the 38 inch tires.
