Been working nearly all day on the JB's wiring. The seller rigged enough to run it, but had to toss all he did. The original harness was there, but he had cut some ends off. Plus the wires to all the lights & the neutral safety switch were gone, so ran new to those places. Took the voltage regulator top of & cleaned the contacts, then cleaned where the wires connect. EVERYTHING electrical works now. The starter/gen charges great, lights work, and safety switch even still works. May not be video today. Charging the camera battery now & may go out for dinner in a bit.

Many congrats Dan! I'm glad that all worked out for you. Sorry I didn't say so earlier. (Been kinda busy myself this weekend. You saw the posts of what I dragged home, My Nephew got married, and my oldest sons scout troop had an end of summer party this evening. Did I mention that I had to work today?) That's gonna really be somethin' when you get around to it!

Last night I took the 3pt bush hog & turned on it's side to start on the gearbox repair. Took the big nut off that holds the blade bar, then got my large 2 jaw puller to pull the bar off the shaft. Held the jaws while snugging up the puller with just my hand. Was puzzled why it wouldn't snug up, thinking something weird going on. Heck, the bar was coming right off! That's as far as I got, but will get into the box soon. The blade shaft is a bit loose, so just going to take the box completely apart & replace all needed. I'm sure the gears are good, as it's not that loose, plus all turns smooth.

Just took the gearbox apart during lunch time. Good thing I did. Smooth as it "seemed" to turn, the input rear bearings was SHOT! The gears are fine, other than a little staining from water contamination. Gonna need at least 1 cone bearing & race, and 2 seals. Haven't taken the output assembly apart, but the bearings are intact.

Really need to replace all 4 bearings & races, plus the seals. Turns out they are std 1 1/4" trailer bearings & cones. I've bought all I need on ebay except the one input shaft seal for just $25!! Yep, 4 bearings, 4 cups, and one seal for just $25 SHIPPED! I've got a seal number for the one, so I'll call my local bearing house to find this elusive seal. Hope they can get it cheaper....Baum Hydraulics wants $17 plus shipping for this one little seal!

Local place ordered the seal for me...$19. $12+ for the seal, special order shipping $6. After I ordered I realized I could have put the housing in a lathe & turned the hole to a more std size & got a seal cheap. Oh well, it'll remain stone stock this way.

I had this JB out a few days ago to get at another tractor, so drove the JB around a bit, just for fun. Seems one of the front wheel bearings in this one is needing attention as in the T-63. Ground was muddy atop frozen ground, and the left front wheel was locking & sliding on the slick areas. Good thing I have more of the 1" tapered bearings!

Welcome to GTT tractrman! If it is a JBII, the it should have a 12hp Briggs & 5 bolt rear rims. The JBI has a 14hp & 6 bolt rear rims. As to decals....I make & sell them. I don't have dash decals templated yet, but intend to soon. I believe the original dash was a wood grain vinyl & I have to locate some. Styles varied a bit on the JB series, but this is what I have. This is not all of the decals to the set I make. You can see the others on my tractor. The ones on the front of grille & back of seat, plus the "Hogs" on the fender boxes aren't OE. I just made them for mine. Bush Hog Corporate people gave me a verbal OK for making these decals.

The decals in the 1st pic I cut in black so they would show better in a pic. The actual decals are white.
