case 380ck rim code/size.

Post by dbcaseuser » Sun Apr 15, 2018 3:15 pm

I bought all the manuals for my 380ck (DB885 I think), but cannot find them for some reason.
Does anyone maybe know what the rear tire rim code and dimensions are. Mine is rusted out and i have to get a new one but suppliers dont want to help me based on actual measurements. They will only ship if i have the codes.
If it will help, some photos attached.
Thanks

The following is a link to the Case Construction on line parts catalogue, showing the rear wheel, for the 380 CK https://partstore.casece.com/us/parts-s ... 6bi24526-2

Thanks.
I used that code at the suppliers and they said it doesnt compute.
They are looking for a number on the Rim itself. Mine is rusted/painted over so there is no visible rim number.

Not sure if knowing the rim size will help and it is a 12.00" x 24"
Rims are measured at the point where the bead of the tyre sits. So for the width of your rim you measure the distance between the inside of both flanges. Then you need the diameter of the rim at the same flange. A proper rim tape is made of balls connected together that sit in the flange area and this gives you the exact diameter and the measure the width normally.
But I am guessing that they also need to know the offset of the mounting points for the naïve plate to bolt to and a spare parts guy might not know anything about that info.
Maybe take the old one into them and say "I want one of these" please. Many years back I worked for a Company that had a wheel manufacturing plant as a side line they could make any type of wheel you want either from existing drawings or from a sample. So if you get no joy from the dealer look up a wheel manufacturing plant and give them a call.

Find a supplier with a clue. Anyway, that rim doesn’t look bad. Mine looked worse and they cleaned up ok.

BTW I was able to buy rims in that size from my local wrecker, so you might try that. He said DB rears were interchangeable with Ford and Ferguson ones of that era.

Lofty might have saved the day. Clean up what you have to get a good understanding of the true condition. Then if not happy buy some replacements and cut off the old and weld onto the new. It really isn't hard to do, you could even use the tractor hub as a jig to tack weld the parts in place.

That rim looks fit for many years use yet, wire brush the rust and fit an innertube and don't worry about it for a few years. Or, make a good job of cleaning and painting it and it'll be good for the next twenty years.

Rim size should also be stamped on the flat facing the inner tube as well. The shadow makes it tricky on the tape but yes measure the inside of the flanges.

That rim might look nice in the photos but it is rusted down to 1mm at the valve. I will TIGweld it and build up the metal in that area again and redrill a valve hole, paint and keep the rim a a spare.

Thank you all for the kind and helpful responses. I get no help from the suppliers and not even CASE stocks it anymore (or even know the exact dimensions - real great "nut-CASE" customer service) so I will make a few visits at salvage yards as you suggested.

Thanks a lot.
