are there any links, or places to help cross the serial numbers to find out what year we have? i have done a bit of searching the past couple days and cant seem to come up with very much. other than the engine code? i havnt tinkered with it at all yet but the serial number off the mower deck is 59732 1937....anyone know the year?? all i know is that its a ford 100..........and looks very old! is it worth keeping for the use of the snow thrower and using to pull trailers??

None that I know of. I used the engine #'s to guess on my year. Since my engine was made near the end of '76 and the closed side models came out in '77, I figured mine to be an early '77 model.

i guess ill have to open her up and check the engine serial #...i was thinking it would be early to mid sixties myself..hard to go by the engine though, not knowing if its original or not.

Not early to mid 60s,but I would say late 60s to early 70s.

My guess from that photo,which doesn't show it the best,would be right around 1970,give or take a year or two.

thanks daytime, its missing some parts though. i need to figure out how the lift rod actually runs and fabricate something.
as well as fabricate the blower engagement lever/rod. ive been searching for pics of both areas but not having much luck. the manuals here are for newer or different models than this one.

although i did fire it up today for a short time, sounds great but i have alot of work to redo from the previous owner.
and need to throw some good front tires on it.

just hope i didnt waste any money getting this thing.

Nice machine....better than my 66 (based on the engine serial number) when I got it. Slowly restoring it. I'll try to upload a manual for a similar year Jacobsen snow blower. .

did you cut the hole in the hood for access to the fuel tank? or did some come like that? i was not pleased about having to unbolt mine to put gas in just to try and start it, let alone imagining having to every time to fill it up....im guessing originally there must have been some type of knobs or something other than nuts n bolts?
