I found this tractor the other day. I am not sure what model it is. Anyone know what it is?

Looks like an 1886 to me, minus the hood which looks to be off a late model 23.

You had me thinking 23 until I saw the trans shifter.

Nice find

I was told it was an 1886, but the hood and what looks to be a green frame/engine, threw me off.

Aren't any more photos. I call B.S on it. The ad states "Needs heads, my shop was broken into and they were stolen"....very fishy.

I came across that ad too. I think he said all it needs is the engine heads in order to run.

 

Those cylinders are probably rusted now from being out in the weather.

I remember coming across this add a while back - it is a fishy story isn't it?

Tractor ran fine but he pulled off the heads, heads where stolen .... !?

You have to wonder if that's not someone selling someone else's tractor.

Here are a few more pics of it. It is an 1886 that has been painted and either has stickers or a hood off a HT23. The cylinder are good, one side had no rust , the other side had very light surface rust on it. I think it will run, just have to find heads and head bolts
