Picked up a Jacobsen today.  Being that my beater pickup and trailer are stuck in ice, I took the liberty to remove the seats (and car seats) to bring it home.  Not my first experience bringing home a GT in a van.  The "Crud Cadet" found its way home in the same fashion.

LOL JK ( not) Great score on the Jake!!!! You even got the hard to find sleeve hitch! Is that a plow up front?

Also when you get a chance see what model it is. It looks like around a 1963 for the year. So it either has a 7 or 8 HP Kohler on it.

I'll be looking froward to more pics :D

Still in the van and no...I don't think I'll break this one down there Chris!  I haven't given it the good inspection yet but it has the 7hp Kohler I know.  I saw that it had the slot hitch and was thinking it might be a good find.  How hard are they to come by?  The thing in front appears to be the frame for a plow, not sure if it is Jacobsen or not.  I'm sure you Jake experts would know better.  I'll try to get a few more pics if I ever get it out of the van.  We spent about 45 minutes using hot water to thaw it from the ground.  Of course, "It ran when we parked it there."

So it is either a 63 or 64. The slot hitch I have never seen one come up for sale. Is the Model tag still on the tractor? 

 

And to your answer :ah_shoot: :bigrofl:

 

Great find and I'll be looking forward to all your updates.Another great thing is until just a couple months or so ago the manuals also didn't exist for these. But thanks to KennyP we now have them in the manuals section!

Here are some manuals that KennpP uploaded to our site. The 8 hp ones use a lot of the same parts. The only real differences are the Hood, Dash tower and the Grill are a bit different.

Cool looking old Jake! Glad it fit in the van okay. I hope those manuals will help with this one. The 100A & B manual is for a 7HP Kohler with 3 speed tranny.

Frozen to the ground - one problem we don't have down here. Stuck in the mud yes - but not frozen in place.
