That would be a big help. From what I can see of his pics, the whole mechanism is missing. Item #12 would be hard to fab. You would need a waterjet duplicator and one to copy off of.

this is great ,just what i needed thanks so much for the pictures , I think that with these pictures they will give me enough info to make a good educated guess on making the brackets for the jacobsen. then with a little refabing on the bolens deck i should have it able to fit under the jacobsen and look like it belongs if you squint real hard and stand back about 35 to 40 feet....LOL... when i gather up all the stuff i need to fab this up i;ll refer to this a thousand times to make sure i have everything as close as i can get it .. SO thanks again Skyrydr and KennyP for the help and everyone else who contributed to this topic it means a lot when you ask someone for help and actually get it

HI Bill, I just saw your post and I am going through some deck problems as well. I have a Jake 1450 and the deck is rusted out. I found one nearby (stroke of luck!) but it is not the same mounting brackets. I am taking all the gear (Wheels, pulley, mounting brackets) off the old one and welding it on my new one. When I get it back I can take some pics and measurments for you. I can tell you it appears you are missing the lift frame or maybe you have it and I did not read the whole post. I also can tell you there is not much "wiggle room" for the mounts. so if you are going to make your own, get the right measurments! I am also picking up another Jake 1650 and a older gt hydro. So i may have a extra deck . Don't know what it would cost to ship from NH to you but may be worth it.

yes Buck the measurements are something i would really be interested in. I still am wanting to make a deck for my jacobsen i can't seem to find one so far and i really don't know how much it would cost to ship from you to me but would prob be alot ,( still interested though) any way if there is some way to get some measurements of the deck lifting action that would sure help me in my quest for a good mower the deck bracets and lift action is what mostley interested in.. the deck really doesn't matter to much because its gonna be a bolens deck stripped and welded from a blank canvus I'll put on everything to make it a jacobsen deck and thank you so much for the help

Bill, I dropped the ball here. I'll see if I can get some measurements for you, but you will need the mule drive also. Have you checked with any of the sponsors about this? At least for the hangers and mule drive. It would be much easier than trying to build.

Hi Bill, I will keep checking in, but i don't have the deck back yet. Be happy to figure out the measurements when I do get it back. You might want to look on Ebay for the lift frame. I think all size Jakes have interchangable lift frames. Once you get this and mounted on your tractor it would be better to go from there. Keep in touch with Kenny and the rest of the guys on here because they have much more knowledge!

Bill, it may be a bit before I can get some measurements, work is getting in the way here. Hopefully, tomorrow I can take mine apart and get pics with measurements of each piece plus some of the mule drive.

oh you have know idea how much this is gonna help me.. You just made me one happy little fabricater this is perfect thank you so much. With all this I will be able to fab this up in know time. and here i thought trial and error was gonna be the case but man this is great ,no guessing here ..When I get the chance to grab up some metal for the bracets. I'll begin the fabing .. Right now I got the frame and motor preped and painted also new wiring and switches just need the rain to stop so i can prep the body and paint it . When this thing is done I'll post all the pics from beginning to end and see what you guys think. so keep checking back for my pics and thanks so much for you measurements Kenny P

Bill, glad I could do this! There is a large spring that hooks to the 7/8" cross shaft for the float action. It was a bit of a pain to hook back on, had to get Steve hold the center section up so I could rehook it! It is Item #24 in the parts breakdown above. You may have to watch how you build that center section, the curved parts are for clearance to the tie rod. It might be easier to just purchase that piece and build every thing else to it.
