Most of you know the problems I have been having in life. So I decided to take a step back and work on something to take my mind off of things.

This Jacobsen 1200 was the other parts tractor I bought in the spring, the PO said it wasn't capable of running. So a few weeks ago I decided to just try and get it running. A carb cleaning, oil change and new points later it fired right up. So I figured the Trans must be shot! got on and had all gears! So need less to say. I tore right into it and this is were I am at now.

The front tires are snow hogs ( got the idea from a post Casey made) as this will have the 2 stage snow blower mounted on it. Sorry for the small pictures I can't find my camera and had to settle with the phone.

Great looking ride there Chris. I am glad you find inspiration in me. The ride on the snow hogs are a little rough but well worth the dig in the turns. Definitely amplifies any steering play. Glad you are getting back to having fun.

Nice looking GT! You have done a great job with it. I like it when the guy I am buying an old tractor from says it won't run.

The 1200 (bigger one) was missing a lot of things. I stole them off the tractor that is supposed to be getting restored lol. Oh well, time to find another parts tractor :D

It sounds like you should withhold the "labels" for these until they're either restored or parted LOL! That's a great job on the distraction Chris!
