Doesn't look like anything left on it worth salvaging.

If the heat melted the tires, all of the gaskets in that engine are now burned, charred and gone. It is unfortunately not worth much, unless you need a frame for yours.

Being petroleum based tires burn danged hot on top of the gas and oil already leaking out there to fuel the flames. IMHO possibly hot enough to even change the molecular structure the steel especially if it was quickly cooled with water. I have to wonder if it would be more suitable to stress fractures??

LOL Just thought this was a joke! What of any value is here other than scrap metal weight? Poor guy lost his tractor, but to waste time on a CL Ad??

Yuck! That's a mess! I don't know what the guy is thinking; there's nothing left worth anything.:2cents: It must suck to have your tractor burn up! I wonder if it was a fuel leak or something that caused the fire, or if it burned up because of something else, like a shed?
