I looked in the manuals section here but did not see a ballasting guide for an NAA.
Ford did have that in the manuals for later models.
The photo below is from a 600/800 manual.
It says the heavy pie weights should not be used on a 600. I'm guessing that because of the splined hubs/axles the max rear ballast on an NAA would be less than a 600 and even a full light pie set would be a bit much.
For what it's worth, I have the same tires as an NAA (12.4x28) on my 3000 and run 3 piece inner weights @ 225 lbs/wheel.
I've found they give me much improved traction for plowing, snow moving, etc without the increased compaction of heavier weights when finish mowing.
I have my eye on a set of one piece inner weights @ 300/wheel and if I can get them, will.
My opinion is 300 lb weights would be just about ideal on a 12.4 tire for all purpose use.
