Default Avery Tractor Identification

Hello Members,
I have recently found the remains of an old Avery tractor and am try to find out the year and model.

I can not figure out how to post a photo. If there is an Avery guru out there I would be glad to email him or her some photos for identification.

Thanks for any response.

Avery Model 20-35 Very rare...Look on the top of the front frame cross member..Should be a serial number stamped in...Same frame size as the 25-50. Same bore and stroke as a 40-80 only two cylinders...made from 1912-1915. Serial number should be under that extra set of wheels, on the right side on top

What a find.......
Right away I knew it's an early one with no notches in the flywheel.
A 12-25 I owned had a single notch in the flywheel for a starting bar.

Sometimes the flywheel is stamped as well with the tractor #. Engine # can be there as well or on the end of the crankshaft. 20-35 engine numbers started with H prefix. Very nice find.

What a great find. I am really glad to finally see some guys finding nice tractors in the weeds and not having to sell the farm to get them .Its amazing what has been found just in the last couple months .Makes you wonder whats out there yet .Good luck getting it bought and home in the barn .If you need a carb for it, I have a 10 ball Kingston thats too small for my 25-50. I think its for an 18-36 or 20-35. Not sure. Jim

Man, I must be seeing the wrong picture. When I looked at it mine said "Expensive but worthwhile project!" LOL!

It really is a nice find for the rarity. I wonder what the radiator will take to fab?

Hello Members,
I am happy to say we are the proud owners of the Avery tractor. After spending two days preparing the tractor for movment we have found we still know little about this tractor. We just discovered the engine slides back and forth on a rail. We could not find a serial number on the top front of the frame but we did find some numbers in other places. On the inside of the engine slide rail under the radiator position we found 306 stamped in the rail. On top of the engine block and on the end of the crankshaft we found 5217. Almost all numbered parts began with 35. We found R 13 stamped on the face of the cylinder block that would be covered with the head gasket. We found H2 stamped on one of the cylinder heads. We found 459 stamped on the hub of the flywheel. We found H 58 on a part coming out of the top of the engine block. We found H4 cast into the top of the engine casting. After looking at the YouTube video of Wendell Kelch's Avery some of our parts are different. I have ask Jim to help me post some photos that hope will help us identify this tractor a little better. Does anyone know what kind and type of magneto fits this tractor? I am not sure what all we are really missing but I do know we are missing the flyball governor, the carburetor and the clutch belt pulley. Of course the big issue is the radiator. The steering mechanism was stuck but we were able to get it working and the differential shaft was also stuck. We removed one wheel and took off the drive gear. This allowed one wheel to move. The other is still stuck. It is 400 miles from home and we are hoping to get it home as soon as possible before dead of winter sets in. Thank you to all of you that have helped us identify this tractor and those who are offering parts to get it back to running condition.

You likely should get in touch with Mr Tyssee at Crosby ND. He had someone make up new radiators for some of his early Averys in the past few years. Also he has a lot of knowledge about these tractors.
