Default 1917 Lauson Tractor 15-25 Project

Just brought this home last night. Very complete tractor, even though it looks like the engine is missing it is actually in the back of the pickup truck.

Hey, that's the best way to bring them home-besides maybe one part at a time?

Randy I have had a 15 25 lauson for a long that I believe, [know] is rougher than yours. I have not tackled it but think about it sometimes.
The tractor tag is missing but the engine has one.
It is a Beaver engine model JA, serial #LA159.
Is that close to yours?

Thanks for the pictures Randy. Here is one of the tag on the head of this tractor.
It did not come out well.
maybe I should try again and the tractor as well.

Any suggestions on the honeycomb radiator? Was looking on the an old car forum and they said all honeycombs are either made in Australia or the UK. If that is the case might be cheaper, even with shipping, to have it done in Australia. Thoughts? I do have a radiator; however, I can't post pictures tonight. I will tomorrow. Thanks.

Randy
