A 1967 Jacobsen Chief 1000. given to me by my sons science teacher originally owned by his father and passed down to us. it sat in a barn under a roof leak for 8 years prior to us getting it all she needed was a new muffler, needle valve and seat, and new points to get the Kohler k-241 running like a top. once we got the Jake running we had to replace the reversing gear box to get the transmission working properly. we plan on putting a plow on it and headlights and using the Jake when the snow comes pictures of that will surely be up in time. we love seeing everyones pictures so here are some more from us

That's a very nice collection of Jakes you have there. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
They look like they are being well cared for. :thumbs:

Nice collection and nice project tractor. You gotta love those Kohler K series engines. Simple, strong and built to last.

Every tractor was a potential parts machine.....But I've gotten all the K-series engines running and then it becomes a project. The only flaw I've found is getting the blower housing off since they didn't use hex heads bolts to attach the grass screen and pulley to the fly wheel.

Very solid looking project tractor! Nice that you know the lineage of it too! I believe that I've said before what an impressive collection of Jakes you have, but it bears repeating!
