Went & picked her up today. Took a pair of rear tire/rim assemblies that hold air to put on it, as the rears were off & don't hold air. Got her home & decided to see if it had spark still. Yep....so got the carb cleaner & gave it a shot....varoom...she fired right off. Put some gas in the tank (which is rust free), and she runs with full choke. I let her run for nearly an hour while tinkering with it. PTO clutch works great & deck runs fine! Can't drive it though. I knew he said something about a busted pulley, but I didn't pay a lot of attention being it was just $50. The input pulley on the transaxle has all it's cast spokes broken out, so it's either find a good used one, or fab one myself.
The engine doesn't smoke at all...period! Might when under a load, but it won't be bad if it does, as there is virtually no smoke at all at any rpm. The charge system works perfectly as well! This is a good tractor!

AND....the battery cover he DID have!!!

Kind of rough tires, but he had these 29x12.50/15 rear tires he tossed on my trailer free also. Will be fine with tubes.

I searched through the scrap metal looking for pieces to build a new pulley for the transaxle. Not much in the way of quality pieces to work with, but I did come up with one, but it's not concentric. It will have some cam to it, but I think it will serve well enough till I can get some peoper material to build a good one, or find a good used OE pulley. Ordered a new V-belt for powering the transaxle too, as the only pulley I had was a bit larger, so the OE belt wasn't long enough. Belt may come by end of the week, but with Thanksgiving, I can't count on it making it here for sure by then.

Awesome Daniel. But question, why wouldn't a standard off the shelf pulley fit the transaxle??

What is the O.D./ I.D. supposed to be? I just looked in the parts manual, That looks to have an offset hub (part # 218013). Maybe one of the sponsors has one?

I bought a bunch of Jacobson parts last summer and I think I have the pulley you need. I'll try and dig it out this week and take a picture of it. If I forget, yell at me!

Good score for both of you.......with a price like that, it isn't hard to find space to put it!

Took a few minutes today to look at the steering as it was notchy. The gears were barely meshing, causing it to try to ride over teeth. Simple to fix, as the lower column has slotted bolt holes for adjustment. Just took a couple minutes to make right.

That's the one Kenny!

Sure hope you have this Doug! PM sent.

Somehow I missed the original thread on this one...What a score you got there! I hope that Doug has the pulley for you too, that would be icing on the cake! Is the grille emblem original on it? That can't be a common item to find intact!

Nice haul Daniel! I have not seen any Jacobsens down here. Definitely got your money's worth and more!

That's not an emblem, but rather just a small chrome light fixture....that still works even! OE headlights came with a different grill entirely that housed square headlights.
I think I failed to mention that I got an original owner's manual with this tractor also & a copy of the parts manual!

Looks good and the price was right. Yrs ago my Uncle had a Ford Big 10 he called it with a 42" aluminum deck, looked something like what you got there.
