Ford 4610 - front fwd axle?

Post by Harwin1982 »

Hi, I have a Ford 4610 fwd. The front axle doesn’t look to be genuine and a later addition. It needs new front tyres. The tyres that are on are 8-18. We don’t think the wheels or current tyres are right for the tractor and to try and figure out what should be on, we would like to know what axle it is and what tyre sizes are suitable. Has anyone any idea?
The rears are 13.6-28.
TIA

Hi,

with a bit of searching I found this:

Ford 4610 Wheels and Tires

Drive Wheels ......................... 2WD/4WD
Steering Configuration ......................... Front Steer
Steering System ......................... Power assist
Front Tire Size (2WD, Std) ......................... 7.5-16
Front Tire Size (4WD, Std) ......................... 8.3-24
Rear Tire Size ......................... 14.9-28
Front Tire Size (2WD, Opt) ......................... 7.5-18
Front Tire Size (4WD, Opt) ......................... 9.5-24
Rear Tire Size (Opt) ......................... 11.2-24
Front Tread (2WD), in (mm) ......................... 52-80 (1320-2030)
Front Tread (4WD), in (mm) ......................... 56-72 (1420-1820)
Rear Tread, in (mm) ......................... 56-80 (1420-2030)

Of course, it's important the ratio between front and rear tire size is correct.

Looks like a ZF YTO aftermarket chinese axle, definitely not the carraro one that should be on there!
