Hopefully I get this right. I have never posted before. I pulled a Jacobsen tractor from a field and got it running. It goes through the gears fine. I am restoring it now. I do not have a manual. It has a Kohler 10hp with a 6 digit Model #. The tractor has a Model # 53035. From what I can figure out it is a 63 or 64. The engine is pre 65 since it is only a 6 digit without a letter in it. The things I need to find out is what lube goes in the transmission (4 Speed). No brake parts so I made them untill I can find originals. I am sure I have a bunch of other questions as soon as I find someone that is knowledgable about these tractors. I have a guy that is going to give me an Amigo and I found even less information about them.

I found a parts listing so far in our Manuals section. Here is the link. That's all I see for that particular model #. I have more manuals to upload. If i see an Operators Manual that may help you, I'll post a link here when I get it uploaded.

Thanks, I would if I knew how. Have to wait till one of the kids gets home. I am through the tear down, sand blasting and repaint. Starting assembly and waiting AG tires. Had to fab bent, broken & missing parts. Mostly steering and brake linkage. Had the make brake pulley and brake band.

Welcome to GTT. Sounds like you're on the home stretch with this project. I find NAPA very helpful for parts. Many of the older tractors like yours used "off the shelf" parts. I've found many parts by looking through the NAPA small engine and lawn mower catalog. I look at the pictures and then check the dimensions. Good Luck

:welcometogttalk: Welcome Wade M! Glad you found us.

It sounds like it is around the 64-65 vintage, but it should be a 3 speed trans. (3 forward 1 reverse)

If it is then they recommend Ep 250 SAE or EP 140 SAE gear oil.

Pictures will help a lot to identify things better for you.

Sitting on the seat is the brake band on the right? and does it have a pulley brake on the left?

If it does have a pulley brake on it, that is important to have it adjusted just right, if not you won't be able to shift while the engine is running. Mine was missing and it drove me nuts trying to figure it out, but I did. At the time there were no manuals around for these units. But thanks to KennyP we now have the manuals!

Good luck for now, but can't wait to see pictures of what you have :D

Wade, I checked New Holland and they do not have a listing for the 53035. But, I'll keep my eyes open for more info. You have just joined the most helpful site on the internet for Gt's. Folks are more than willing to help you along. All you have to do is ask a question.
What is the engine model #? Maybe we can pin down the year through that!

I am unable to come up with anything on your #'s. At least so far! I'll keep looking around. Something will surface!
