Ugly surprise when I went to pick up an 820

I went to pick up my deceased father's 1961 820 snowblower which I knew needed inner tubes and discovered that someone had stolen the chains from it and in the process lost/took one of the steel rims. This model Bobcat uses a two piece rim and the stamped steel outer part is missing ( not the cast iron inner).
Anyone have any suggestions? Can this be converted to a one piece stamped rim/tire setup. Have not had any luck finding a replacement 2 piece rim so far. Tires are 4.10/3.50 x 4.

It never ceases to amaze me what vermin will steel..Sorry to hear about that.Any chance you could post a photo of the wheel setup?I'm not familiar enough with the different models to visualize it.Someone else may have one in their hoard and not know what it goes to.

Garage
Any chance another family member was trying to fix the tires and that's why the chains are off and the wheel is apart ??
Would be great if someone knew where they were and instead of stolen they're just sitting in a corner, drawer, ...
I don't know those well enough either so photos are a good suggestion. What is the shaft dia ??

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Have you looked on EBay or placed and add on Craigslist? If one of my 8 Bobcats was in pieces I would try to help but they are all complete. Sorry.

These folks have the most BobCat parts that I've found so far you might want to give them a call.

i would agree that you should measure the axle and see about finding the right size rims to fit. i am pretty sure most machine usually use pretty standard size shafts or worse case scenario you could probably get some adapter sleeves to go up a size if needed

I'll be out of town visiting family in SoCal for a few days and when I get back will run back up north and try to find missing rim flange, failing that, I'll take some pictures. BTW, as best as I can describe it... Axel has cast iron disc shaped piece on it with groove that seats the inside of the tire ( not tubeless) and four threaded holes for the bolts that retains the outer (missing) rim and tire.

Not a Bob-cat/Bear-cat guy.
I think it's interesting that the inner half of the wheel rim is part of the cast iron hub.
Worst case scenario I wonder if you could have the center hub cut out from a generic 4 in wheel like this.

Actually, I was at my new favorite store (Tractor supply) just now and looked at a wheel much like that. Since the trip there was on impulse, I did not have the rim that I do have with me and could not compare dimensions. At first look, it appears at a minimum, I will have to drill out the mounting holes to a larger ID. It appears as if that wheel/tire combo will come apart (one part with rim half and hub, the other just a "dished" half rim) if one removes the 4 bolts and one part will be about the size and shape I need.
