Which Hydro? My 716H uses the same backspacing as my 712S and my 61 Wards. I like to use less backspacing to keep my wheels as close together as possible when pulling. I have made most of my pulling wheels, by cutting them apart with a jigsaw and welding a band around them to make them the correct width. I do all the welding so that it will be inside the tire, and use tubes. I have made both 10.5 and 12 inch wide steel rims. I never used the high dollar aluminum wheels. I have an extra set of 12 inch wide wheels, but I don't want to let them go. They are on a motorcycle engine tractor that my son-in-law is thinking about resurrecting and putting back on the tracks.

I use the Douglas aluminum wheels on both pulling tractors. They are 12 X 12 with a 4/8 offset. The only place that there is a clearance issue is the cone clutch shaft on the BGB (I did not want to cut it off). I had to put a 1/2" spacer on the left side wheel hub to clear the shaft (with cone clutch removed), with Carlisle 26 x 12 x 12 Turf Chief tires. There are no clearance issues with the Firestone lug tires. Front: we use 8" aluminum wheels on the front on both tractors with 4.00 x 8 on "Deuce" and 3.5 x 8 on "Ace". These front wheels came with the hubs (4 bolt)and hub caps. Many pullers use a 6" wheel alum. wheel that comes with a 3 bolt hub. These hub/wheels just slide right on the 3/4" spindle and you use the lock collar from the original wheels. All wheels were bought from Midwest Super Cub.

        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
