And it's not a bad thing at all to have one, I have 3 myself now.

There has been one for sale down by Ypsilanti on Craigs List for most of the summer.
It is painted John Deere colors and doesn't have any implements with it.
The engine is a BKN from the 60's.

He was asking $1000 for it but I see it is now listed for $1200 OBO.
I guess if you can't sell it for a $1000 you may as well ask $1200 ???

What front tires are those and where did you get them? What did you go with on the rear for tires?
Front's 6.00-16 BKT implement-as504 6 ply rating

The front's Are the only tires I could find for the rims nere me at a local tire store.
There also alot taller then the old ones.

Backs are the 4.00-12 4ply firestones that were on the ridemaster when I got it. Thay were in good shape so I just cleaned them up and put them back on.

Let me know if you need more info about them.

I see the 6 x 16's on titan tire for $70 which is a lot better than those reproduction one's. I also found some rims on there that are either 4.5 or 6 x 16 with a 1 1/4 offset. I know the originals are something like 3" wide. The reason I ask is that mine are in rough shape and I'll need a set of rear rims and maybe two sets of front rims + tires. I haven't measured mine yet so I first need to see if I have 16" rims on the front or 18". BTW, looks sharp!

If you do anything like I did with the back rims feel free to ask me for help if you need it.


:thanku:

Don't those 6.00-16 front tires rub the tool bar mounts when you're turning ?

The Ridemasters came with 5.50-16 front tires.
The outside ends of the traction lugs rub the tool bar mounts on any of the Ridemasters that I've seen with the 6.00-16 tires.
Your brand of tires may have a smaller outside diameter than other brands or the profile on the lugs may be rounded off on the ends more.
As far as I know, Miller Tire Company are the only manufactures still making the 5.50-16 tires.


I think the older Wisconsin engines are suppose to have a little ticking noise in the valves.
I have five engines ranging from 1943 to 1955 and they all have that ticking noise from the valves.

The valve setting is: .010/.014 intake & exhaust on the standard valves.
.016/.018 for stellite exhaust valves.

Thanks for the info I'll check and see were there at right now. If there right I'll let them tick away.
