Came out pretty good for oxy/ace. I found out that a good clean cutting tip helps. Tried a new one after using an old beat one for a long time and it made a big difference.

These are supposed to be 25s but the ones I took off are 26 and alot taller.



Gonna try them out and see how they do. If I don't like them I'll put others back on.

Another set of wheels reentered with new tires.

These babies should dig


Drilled the 4 spot welds.


Knocked the center out


Set it in place where I wanted it. And rewelded.

Thanks. It's really fairly simplr to do.

I used a 3/4 drill bit and drilled the 4 spot welds that held the wheel center to the wheel. Then knocked it out with a hammer, and flipped it over and tapped it back in place. I rotated it a hair so.the holes were not perfectly lined up so that I wasn't welding a hole shut, I was instead welded plug welding the wheel to itself on both sides.

To center it I first lined it up.with the rust line and then used a digital micrometer.

No they are not valve springs. But they are about the same size. My parts pile is getting small so I had to go to the hardware store and just dig around thier selection.

Not to much else planned for it other than a winch and I may build new spindles for the front. Only a matter of time until I break these ones.

I built it out of angle iron I had laying around, and an old plastic tote.




Update:
Didnt like how high my seat sat, so I cut 3 inches out of the mount.
