A PM is a private message to one person kinda like an email but it uses the WFM system.
If you click on the. square box, there is the word message in the lower right. That is how you send a message to an individual. A post everyone can see.
Do you mean you remove the 5 lug bolts and replace them with the (5) 1/2" UNC x 5 1/2" bolts called out in parts catalog? I like the sound of that. Two carriage bolts thru the square holes in the rim seems lightweight. Grade 5 bolts?
Let me know if first responses do not pan out. I am very interested and can pick them up at your location.
My understanding is that the starter weights are almost the same for a 400 as the other 400 series except that the 420/430 (and probably others) have a dimple in the back side to allow for the axle nut. The starters on a 400 do bolt to the large wheel hub and have a flat face inside a spacer ring on the back. With the dimple, they would be mounted through the auxiliary wheel holes on non-400's. We need to see a picture of the back side of the starter weights to confirm suitability. That's clear as mud.
Never mind the starter weight on the right. The weight on the left does not have the relief in the center for the axle nut on non-400 machines. The other pic is how the weight bolts up to the 400 hub.
the 400 rear axle rim mounting flange is significantly larger diameter than other models. The bolted installation shown in post #11 is significantly different on later models. I have sent you photos in a PM ... Gabby
