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

I know it is pre 1965. There is very little info on identifying pre 65 Kohlers. The Hood is not the same as the 63 models so I am leaning toward 1964 atm.

I found the Jacktown event while researching this project. I have marked the January date on my calender. Banger is a little over an hour from here so I hope to be there. Mainly to meet others and learn. We are also avid campers and are always looking for something to do in our travels. I see Jacktown has other events during the warmer months. It will be a good weekend getaway. I should have my Jacobsen done by then

Howd'y Wade, I am a jacobsen collector and puller and based off the prefix and item number you listed your tractor is a Chief Tractor Heavy Duty, Prefix or series# 53035 Item or production # 2385 which means it was built Feb 3rd 1964 and it was the 85th tractor built of that series. Hope that info helps.

That's nice to know as there isn't a lot of info like that to be found online. Have you checked this out yet? I hope i have that right, but if you see something there that isn't, i would be happy to see corrections.  Maybe you can teach us a few things?

I haven't run across anything with that low of #'s as yet. But I will say you have a low serial as Jacobsen always started serials from 1601.

Thx for that info. I do know it has a 12hp Kohler on it. Sometime I will probably need a carb and a power drive clutch as well as a shift lever which is getting pretty sloppy.
