These are WWII surplus wheels used to build an orchard sprayer.  The sprayer is no longer in use, and I'd like to find out what these fit and who might be able to make use of them.  Any help will be most appreciated.  Jerry.

Are you saying you are sure they are not aircraft, or that you are not sure they are aircraft?  They are aluminum or magnesium, and have the fat bald low pressure tires common to some WWII aircraft.

I'm taking a stab in dark, but they might be from a Fairchild PT-19 or PT-26?  The stand-offs, with the holes, remind me of the ones used on the PT series for towing purposes.

Hi Jerry,


Could you e-mail me off board about these wheels if you still have them?
