I do belive a 24 would have 24inch rear wheels and a 16 would have 16 inch rear wheels

Download a couple of the manuals from our Manuals Section and read them. Look carefully at the tractor when you get there. Look for cracks, leaks, and that everything is straight. The FEL may be bent or the front axle may be. Look at the pins of the FEL for wear. Loosness of parts and joints can indicate age and possible problems. Be very carefull unless it is very cheap. I've spent alot of time making parts and welding up loaders. I enjoy it but you may not. Good Luck, Rick

I just sold a  1971  1614 dual tranny  without a loader for 800---Hour after it went on craigslist I got about 8 calls,guy bought it that night.-I should have asked more.

It was a good running tractor with just a mowing deck , with no battery--he didn't even want to here it run.

That is very good price for one with loader! There is an older early loader that kind of HANGS off the frame with long full -length running frame and big round oil tank that is not as nice as the later loaders with center frame mount and tanks in uprights. The 16" wheels are better for a loader, less tip over chance than the 24", but both will work if you are careful not to over-do them. Kind of hard to judge w/out pictures, but sounds like you should be OK. Find serial # on the dash or grill to find out year of tractor and post back here. Newer tractor is best buy, but many older rigs are doing great with good care.
