Default Steel Wheel Identification Help Please

I purchased a sorghum mill at and auction over the weekend the auction had a traction engine as well as lots of other steam engine related things. A guy at the auction thought this sorghum mill was sitting on a traction engine wheels and axle they are mounted to an old truck frame. I plan to take them out from under it just curious as to what they belong to maybe even a manure spreader or something just thought it would be fun to know what they came off of. They are roughly 40inches tall and 7.5 inches wide

Hello
Any chance you can see a part number on the hub. Number should be located in the groove that goes around the hub. I'm betting if the wheels are 44 inches in diameter they fit a 25 Hp. Type C Mogul. If they are 38 inches in diameter 20 Hp. Type B tractor, if here 36 inches in diameter they go on a 20 Hp. Type C Mogul
Let us know what you find out.
LeRoy

Boiler was thin. .224, .228 all over below the water line, crown and side sheets the same. Stays had about 1/3 wasting at the base.

KGC1615,Those aren't ideal readings on boiler plate but you and I have seen worse ones. Dee Quick's Keck was .125 around the front pedestal part of the boiler. The state of Illinois allowed 110 psi MAWP on that one. GO figure! Dee fired his engine on that amount of pressure for years and he was satisfied with it. Dee was one of my mentors and he knew what live steam would do to you if you were careless. :eek Back to the title,I wonder if there was an IHC Mogul on this farm.

From the pictures I've found online it sure does appear these would belong to one of the monguls. Would these be worth anything other than scrap? I would never scrap them but would be interested In putting them in someone who appreciates them hands. A fellow at the auction has first chance at them anyhow I was just curious as to what they belonged to I sure appreciate the help.
