1943 Omaha and 1943 John Wood carts

Post by david.harris » Thu Jun 17, 2021 3:27 pm

I have been lucky enough to find a second cart in my area. Brought home an Omaha Industries cart last night dated 1943 S/N 19008.

Now I have 2 carts and need to know if it is ok to make 1 complete cart out of the two of them? 1 is an Omaha cart and the other a John Wood cart both dated from 1943. The Omaha Cart needs a wheel and Hitch assembly (would use the John Wood pieces)

Also the Omaha cart came with two never mounted tires with a diamond pattern. Are these appropriate for the cart? The appear to be in good shape with no dry rot.

And did all carts come with the Slotted Pan head type bolt with Castle Nuts? Neither of these carts had even 1 of those bolts, wondering why.

Thanks in Advance

I also noticed the difference in rivets. I know the cart has been repainted and wondering if the plate was removed and then re-installed with different rivets. The previous owner had the cart for 30+ years. I have been looking for pictures of Data Plates to see if it looks correct but haven't found any pictures of the Omaha plate, only found Rock Island and John Wood.
