Rock farmer - Do they have hub caps? It looks like it might on the rear in the one picture. What attachments will be coming with your tractors? Running or not... these will have a lot of potential. If both are complete... you could always get creative on the repower. I'd love to do a small diesel in a large frame.

 

wilberj - WAIT... did I miss read this? You have an HT23 right?

I haven't seen them yet. Don't know about hub caps.
I hope I get them. But, they seem to be plain generic caps.
I'm told a lot of attachments. I won't know until next Saturday.
The guy I'm talking to doesn't really know about what's there!
I'll post pictures as soon as I get it all home!

Hi Rockfarmer, it was nice to meet you at the tractor show.  Best of luck with the equipment. Feel free to ask us questions about everything after you pick it up.

So, I went up to denmark and got the stuff yesterday.
Two trucks and two trailers full!
Didn't get it all ferried home until after dark.
Unloaded it this morning.
Just starting to access what I got!
Looks like an HT 23 and an HT 20.
The man bought the HT 23 new.
Made attachments himself.

Looks like quite the assortment. You should have enough there to make one heck of a tractor. Mower deck looks like it's in decent shape as well

Gees, upon further review, I don't think I have anything that begins with a "Z"!
Maybe I need a Zamboni?

Well, I do have a Harry Furguson. And since Massy Harris bought Harry Furguson. And, became Massy Furguson.
I feel I have that one covered!
I really can't think of anything that tempts me. Except possibly a diesel powered one. But I could re-power the other Bolens large frame with a Kabota!

how about a Minneapolis Moline GT...  I missed out on one of those a few years ago. It was in really nice shape. Not really sure who made them for Minneapolis.... but it had an all aluminum mower deck.

That would have been a Jacobsen. Sames as the Fords of the sixties.

And when I went to get these large frames the HT 23 was sporting only three hub caps.
So, I asked the seller if he had the forth.
Took him a little but he found it!

Update;
I re- powered the HT 23 with a low hour industrial motor (K582) that was used in a cranberry harvesting machine.
Had to have a drive shaft adaptor made. But, it's back up and running. I even mowed some grass with it!
Still lots of things to fix about it, but, it's a complete functional machine.
I then decided I couldn't let the opportunity pass by to get another industrial K582.
So, I bought that for the HT 20. Ran the engine on the ground tonight. Not as clean and low hour as the first one.
But, it runs well and does not smoke! Next is a custom drive shaft adaptor for that.
Then I'll be on to making functional exhaust set ups for them both.
I have five of these engines now. And four different exhaust manifold set ups!
