Thats nice! Bubba J looks in great shape for his age! Thinking around 1963 from the looks of that hood and grill. And great score on the front wheel weights! You rarely see them around.

Does he still have a model and serial tag on him?

As far as any parts reference we should have manuals for that in our manuals section.

If you can get the numbers off the tractors id tag and the motor tag that would help a lot. It should be a Kohler K241 though if it is a Jac 1000

Good luck with Bubba J :thumbs:

Jac.jpg Tag on tractor says: model 100-A and serial number is 4267. i found a sheet last nite online that put him as a 1962. Gettin those wheel weights with Jacobsen on them was as rare as rare could be.
The engine plate gives me the serial number 589608 and a spec of 28671E The area for the model was rubbed off and the decal on front was wore off. I think it is a 10hp.

I knew it was around the 63 mark. You don't see many of the old ones like Bubba J around. My oldest Jac is a 65 and it has a different grill than yours. And if I remember correctly the 100-A is very rare!
If you get a chance take some more pictures, I would love to see if yours has the brake on the Trans input pulley besides the band brake on the opposite side. and would like to see what it has for a pto.
Sorry if I'm asking to much, I just love the old Jac's and that is the 1st 62 I have seen so far :D

Ok this is interesting research so far! It looks like that engine is a K161 (7hp). Still digging so I'll be back. :D

I have the brake band on the right side if sitting in the seat. i need to repair that as it was welded before and the weld is broken I believe that on the left side is just the pulley for the belt i havent gotten in there yet to look around. I did get the hood and fuel tank off today 20121215_133529.jpg Jacobson.jpg Jacobson 3.jpg

After seeing these pictures, the muffler is a clue also, and I looked up the K161 with your spec and it shows up. That spec# also didn't show up under the K181 or the K241. So a K161 ( 7hp) it is.

It looks like everything is there on this one even :thumbs:

Also you have the front mount for the snow blade or a snowblower, and the lift arm has the piece that is usually missing to mount the lift rod from either a blade or a blower. :thumbs:

I haven't found any info on these trans yet. I have been searching for myself and nothing so far. They appear to be units that Jacobsen made just for these tractors. Unlike the later ones that all use a Peerless.

I have to replace Bushings in the axle tubes on mine ( I don't believe there bearings)

So what I suggest is if you ever come across any of these old machines even if there junk save them for trans parts.

One of these days I will find an old trans like these have and dissect it so I can mic everything up and see what it uses for seals, bearings and bushings.

That would be a great idea. i always have my eyes scanning old farms while driving by looking for projects.I'm gonna get the measurments for the seal at the brake band shaft and try to get it crossed over to buy locally.

Nice find, great looking tractor. Bet Bubba J looks nice setting in the shed next to the PK. Kinda like a little brother.

The whole unit looks to have been well cared for, even the mower deck looks to be in great shape.

Thanks for the pics and good luck on your info search.
