Hope I can post the photo. It's deep in woods, probably not worth pulling out.

No luck with the photo. "Cletrac" on radiator shell. VERY rough.

Says photo is uploading. Did not see or have time to look for id plate. Probably won't be able to return quickly. It's not close to home.

Here is a video to help you upload pics.  http://gardentractor...-file-uploading  I'd like to see it. Does it have a model plate?

Looks too big to be an F model. 15 or 20 maybe? There would be a number below the vertical script on either side of the radiator if it was a 15, 20, or 35. Too small to be a 35 though, I think.

Cletrac is Cleveland Tractor Company, before they were with Oliver.

   OOH MAN !!!!! that's a shame to see something as cool as that setting rotting away, think of the history there.  that probably changed the lives of more than one generation and now it is going to rust away.  thanks for the pics.

Probably a Hercules engine. Cletrac was big into them.
There are some pieces there. Maybe a lawn decoration, maybe more.
Are the pipes covered?

Maybe the same Hercules engines used in the old Willy's jeeps?

Maybe? IDK? They were little 4 bangers. Tractor data says the small ones were a 1.9L
Our General GG (made by Cletrac) has one. Waiting for me to change the head gaskets and reassemble.

People want Cletracs, get it if can. Those engines hard to get parts for, but is a fella selling help and parts for these, an Amish fella, can't recall name now. He advertises all over in mags. Place in Ohio that sells the engine parts, what he can find or has. Trees close, any growing thru it?  I'm sure engine is stuck along with much other parts on it. Would be a slow years long restore for most people. Would need lots of room in a barn/shed to work on it.

Any value guess as is ?

If I touch something like that I don't quit thinking about it lol, if it is on top of a mountain with poor access (can a big truck with big equipment get close enough) then the price will be much lower than in the back forty off a two track. People who collect heavy equipment have money, time and the equipment needed move a piece like that, is it a special model,a rare model or the only one left on the planet,some one will want it of that I'm sure, and they will pay dearly for it, how much the seller gets depends on getting to it
