Yesterday I have picked up my 11th tractor in 3 years  :D

This one is a sad sight.

Please if you are faint of heart do not view these pics. I know some of us cannot bear to witness the butchery some owners put these fine machine through. I dont think the machine is worth rebuilding but its what came with it that had me call off work yesterday to pick it up before someone else learns about it. Considering that GTs are pretty uncommon up here Im happy with this find.

 

Anyway, I dont really know what it is appart that its Bolens and I guessed it to be a HT 20 or 23.

The engine has no ID tags so its a bit hard to figure it out.

Isn't that the same model as you had 2 years ago? Look for a parts machine. Good Luck, Rick

Well I dont think its a 1886 like the one I had before. By looking at pics on Google I think its a HT model. Ive never seen a 1886 with this dash board layout.

the 1886s-05 and HT18/1886s-06 used the sunstrand 15 along with the HT20.
The 1886-03 used the Eaton 12.

Love the Alt on it, and gas tank! Heck, if it works, leave it alone and use it. I Would put a seat on it tho! ha!  Get one of those Hi-back Yellow ones all the places have, see it it runs better!   Heck, remove loader for diff tractor, part this one out and make more cash maybe?  I wouldn't really "fix" it back to normal if it is working, don't think value would increase enough to do so.

a seat? lol

No, the thing isnt runnin at all. I had the eng. turn over today and it did so with difficulty. Had no spark and more than a few wires are ripped outta place and cut to s***t. Many a part is missing on there and I dont think it to be a rebuild prospect apart for some masochistic fellow.

 

Im thinkin cannibalize everything hydraulic on there and the loader attachement then reinstall it all on my MF14. I was planning to turn the MF 14 into a loader before finding this Bolens anyways. So its not gonna be lost to the scrap yard

There was a make-do engineer in that poor thing's past!  Its amazing how much work people will create to avoid doing something right.
