gt's.jpg Thought I might post a pic of two new jakes I picked up today. The front one is a 83 1650 and the one behind it is a 73 (I think) gt 14 hydro. The owner said they can run so what the heck I brought them home. $200.00 for both of them so I thought I did ok. Now if it would only stop raining..........

Have they issued the warrant yet? (theft)

I'd say you got a great deal, especially if they're runners!

Nice score on a couple of very capable tractors. Can't believe you got them both for $200. Wow! I hope there isn't too many issues with them. Best of Luck!

Very nice. That front machine is the best looking Jac from that era that I've seen. The paint is usually badly faded if they have been left out in the sun much! A very good deal!

Thanks for the nice comments! Now only if my wife would get on the same page.....ha! Anyway, got the newer 1650 fired up today. It would not start so I poked around to see what was wrong and found that the carb was really loose. The OR said it was running funny. I got the carb tightened up and and it fired right up. Now it runs but a little rough and it sounds like the rpms want to run away. Any Ideas? I did not dare to crank the throttle all the way up because it just sounds like the rpms would be way to high. Drives really nice, steering nice and tight, comfy seat and hydro tranny works good. just have to figure out the rpm thing and hopefully it will cure the roughness and stalling.

Maybe the gaset for the carb is bad cause if it was loose then it could have blown the gaset,, But I really not sure if its pos to have a gaset there,,
