    That 80 loader wouldn't be the right era either.

    Missing front cast rims too....

    Loader a bit new relative to age of tractor , but not many would restore the loader . More likely leave it off.

    Cast front rims weren't on a 188 . Standard front rims , but with bolt on weights on front wheels . Usually taken off to cure the appetite for wheel bearings that they caused .
    A 188 had PAVT rear wheels , a 185 had ordinary rear wheels.

    You are correct, it was those bolt on front weights that I meant when I said cast!!

    I used one in 1974 and it was blowing a bin of Wheat . The power source was a red David Brown and it was a bit of creative clutching to get it spinning

    I’d say the fact their not putting it in themselves is enough to suggest it might need other work doing once that problem would be sorted.
