Default Avery Motor Cultivator Help

Can anyone date this tractor by the radiator? I'm sure lost on them but by the pictures iv'e seen so far i'm guessing early.

Yoder was cobbling that motor cultivator up from anything he could find. The radiator, engine, front wheel, all are wrong. It started out as a late gear driven 6 cylinder motor cultivator.

Final drive gears were originally enclosed , also the diff.
By the looks of the front frame casting and all that, it was one of these at one time.

My thought is some of it is the remains of a very late road razor even later then the catalog pic you posted.

Probably 80% cobbled up, 90% wrong, but saved from scrap and being forever gone. All i was curious about was the radiator, doesn't appear on the internet as much as the top tank with fins and no through bolts on the sides.

Iv'e looked at as many pictures i could find on the internet and still haven't found many with this radiator, it doesn't have friction drive so i assume it is later in production.
Hadn't found any Avery collectors organizations either, other than BF A.

Don't know that there are enough Avery guys out there to get any sizeable group together for much more than a early morning coffee shop session.

Looking at full line catalog, that radiator looks like the one on late road razor, approx. 1926.

Can you tell what engine might be in it? All i have seen are Avery engines, this one has a replacement ( we think) Waukesha flathead in it dated 1926.

Avery reorganized a couple of times and operated to the late 30's or early 40's.

The flywheel cover (And I'm just guessing wildly) Reminds me of a F135 Continental I dug one up at a junkyard dated about 1923 or so

A bump for Ed on his rdiator date question. I noticed tractor dom had an avery catalogue download on this site for 1923 but i can't seem to look at them, you may search for it and see what the radiators look like there.
Otherwise, they are sure hard to date, i would say 1924 and probably be close.

This evening i was looking up some information in the 'red tractor book' for 1926 and FINALLY found a picture of a unit with this radiator. This power road maintainer would have a different frame and front bolster than what is left of mine, which i think would make it a road razor.
But the interesting part is the engine note. It says the road maintainer for 1926 had a Waukesha 3 1/2x 4 1/2 four cylinder, which is what mine has in it dated 1926! I assumed this engine was wrong and should be an Avery engine.

Can anyone post a clear picture of an Avery motor cultivator ID tag? I think they are on the frame right rear. Also some dimensions, possibly?
