Will the new style treaded wheels fit on the old style C/D/F engined LBs? Non self propelled?

I am reviving this because I have a bunch of Gold/silver series new style wheels and wanted to see if these would fit on the front (yes) and rear of my 8237. The fronts are a direct bolt up.

The rear axle however goes through the non SP silver gold wheel but no bolt is used just washers and there just doesn't seem to be enough room to get the C retainer washer in the axle groove to keep the rear on. Its close but no cigar.

So how did this guy above put the rears on that capstan drive model? Anyone have any suggestions? The originals are worn out and I like to have some tread to use on my hills.

Just shave the inset on each rear wheel down abit until you get enough clearance to put the clip back on.

I considered that but the metal sleeves are going to be tough. Have to whip out the bench grinder I guess. Echo do you think these wheels will be unduly tough on the drive system. I mean I can adjust around a little bit bigger wheel right?

The slick wheels crab walk down my hills...the treaded ones seem to STICK alot better.

I wouldn't think the tread pattern would be too rough on the capstan, no. I never though about doing a retro-fit, but don't see any harm in trying one.

Better make sure they have the same highway speed rating and tread wear warranty!:hide:
