Do you know what engine is in it? If there are no tags on the engine, if you take a pic or two of it I am sure some of the guys will be able to tell you what it is.

I've never even seen a Crosley Tractor, but am familiar with the name. We still sell Crosley Appliances where I work.

I would love to see a pic of it (regardless of condition).

Here is a pic of the tractor the hood is off. It has been modified for a loader. I got the tractor for free.

Did a quick search with very few results, but the one that I did find had an owner asking similar questions. Is yours 4 wheel drive 4 wheels steer?

Ironically, I'm in the process of putting a crosley (car) transmission in my tractor.

This is not a 4 wheel drive, just rear wheel. I think the engine might need rings. It smokes a bit but it runs good. I am going to clean her up and then try some diffrent oil with additive (Lucus or Restore). We will see.

I would say this is a home built unit using Crosley components. The true Crosley tractor was called a Farm King and used a Mighty Mite running gear. This sure doesn't look like it but maybe with some other pictures it may look different. Here are some pictures of a true Farm King.

Yes, I used him to get parts for my Crosley Tranny and it was a good experience.

Yes, I think it was homemade. I believe it was made from a farm-o-road.

Well, Brian, it sounds as if you may have to write the manual. Homemade tractors are really cool pieces of history, but they do leave a little to be desired in information.

Thanks for the picture, and please keep us up to speed on this, it's a really neat little tractor.
