Here is a blue LF with a FEL . Any guesses on the model of the tractor or FEL? I am still getting info from the seller and it's a good four or five hours away from me.

The engine appears to be a Kohler so 1886. I do see lift bars for a rear attachment in there.

Looks like a Johnson loader.

 

My guess is 14xx also.  Do 1886 have Bolens cast into rear axle??

1886, though can't tell for sure, looks like it's got earlier style Cessna power steering pump on it, which is factory and be leaning me towards an 86, I can't see the engine, but as others said if it's a twin Kohler and with this PS, I'd say an 86.

Looks to be a 1886-01 - 1886-03 need more photos to really tell what it is.   Only 14hp LF it could be is the 1477 that was the only 14hp LF that could come with PS.

If it's a half decent price u better run because 1250s brining 1400 these days with no loader or ps that will be gone in a heartbeat. Looks like a 1477 to me looks like single cylinder engine

I saved the first photo and tried zooming in but it's still really hard to tell on the type of engine.

 

The loader looks like a Johnson.

 

 

Do 1886 have Bolens cast into rear axle??

 

Yup, the 1886-05 series did which had the Eaton 12 (same as the earlier large frames.) The 1886-06 (HT18) is when Bolens went to the later Sundstrand 15 in the HT18/20 large frames.

Is that pipe that goes over the dash on the loader original to the j14?

Me thinks the 1886-01 thru 04 had the Eaton pump, the O5 and O6 the Sundstrand.

Trans -axle looks like my 1477,, but the fender pan doe's not. and I have no power-steer on a 1972 model .

Once power steering became available on a LF was an option all the way thru until the HT23S, the early PS Cessna pump shown here and pretty cool because you don't see them a lot (yes there are NOS NIB owned by members here). Required an proportioning valve installed in the lift/remotes valve body , I believe do to the pressure the Eaton developed and I also believe the small size of the Cessna valve on the PS unit, later model PS like on the HT20-23 had a larger Cessna valve and can be retrofitted to an 1886 without the proportioning valve

Take the 1 off 1400 and that is what they go for in my parts.

You are very lucky!
Next time you see an 1886, any HT with loader for a good price give me a ring!
THANKS!
