    738 Wheel weights question

    Put 50 lb. wheel weights on each wheel for plowing over the winter. If I leave them on for the summer am I adding undue stress to the engine/drive train?

    I wouldn't think so. I have 50 lb. weights on my old 318 all the time. I like the extra stability mowing on side hills and ditches.
