True "Hub Caps" vs.Wheel Covers

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else ever seen true hub caps on an older Broadmore instead of the full wheel covers? I was looking at one of the older ones out back and noticed that it had them. Though I have seen plenty of the Baby Moon style, I don't recall having ever seen ones like these. Though rusty, you can see that they were once bright and shiny chrome. This is the front one. It has a small hole so you can get to the set screw in the collar.

This is the rear one. Would you call it a Micro-Moon cap?

Here's a full wheel cover on another old Broadmore. It's the commonly seen Baby Moon cap, shown for comparison.

Although I have never seen the small hubcaps I think these were on the 990287 and 990373 . They had Standard wheels, tires and hubcaps. I believe the Standard wheels and tires were smaller than the Deluxe wheels and tires that were on the 990288, -303, -374, -375, -424 and -425. The baby moons were the deluxe hubcap.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
