IMO all large frames should be restored ! But the main thing is $$

If you have a engine, or can pick one up at a decent price, why not go for it. It don't have to be pretty to be a work horse.

I know a guy who has a few rebuilt K series Kohler twins on the shelf, not cheap, but they are as good as new, he takes no short cuts when rebuilding them.

Good luck with it, glad to hear your not going to part it out.

i really wish this had an engine but it's going to be a parts machine for my other 1886. unless i could find another engine to put in there. i now have three tractors but only want two good runners. my ht-23 might wind up being my snow plow because it has the low range but not totally sure.

I'm not sure what he gets for them, but I'll ask him the next time I talk to him.

Yes K486. A 532 or 582 would be a direct fit.
