Caster Weight Suggestions
#1
Folks,

I'm about to weld up some casters and supports so I can remove the running gear on my 72. Anyone have any suggestions on how many pound rating the casters should be ? The Mustang is completely stripped with engine removed.

Thanks

I used these on a rack in the pic below, they have 405 lbs capacity, I got them from Northern tool and they work real well. I went with the 8" just so it would be easy to move and it is. Im not sure what you have planned but I thought I would reply with what I used. I hope that helps

I just bought some 1000# 3" cast iron casters from Northern Tool online for $5 each to re-caster my engine lift. 4 of those would work fine to support your 3500# +/- car. Or buy 6 of them to play it safe.

My Mustangs:
71 M-code Mach 1, Medium Blue/White Sport, 4R70W, 3L50, Factory Ram Air.
72 Q-code Mach 1, Pewter/Black Sport, 4-spd, 3L25.
65 Convertible, Britney Blue/White/White, more modified than original.
05 Convertible, Legend Lime/Tan/Tan, future classic??
