Hello everyone. I have this Jacobsen Chief that my dad gave me awhile back and it needs some TLC and I don't know where to start. The tractor runs and mows, but it has a few issues such as a the rear end leaking some fluid and the brake band is pretty well shot. The main issue with it though is the second gear of the transmission is worn out. This is the gear we always mowed in and it won't stay in. I believe the machine has a 10HP Kohler engine and I've got the mower deck on it. Everything worked when I parked it a few years ago in the shed. The plow is still in my dad's shed and hasn't been used in awhile.
Does anyone know where a transmission could be found for this thing? I would hate to get rid of it as my dad purchased it new (splitting the cost with my grandpa) and it stayed at my grandma's house until she passed away in 1999. It has been used very little since then, but with the engine still running and the mower deck still mowing, I don't want to send it to the scrap yard. Please let me know if you need anymore information...I can did it out of the shed and try to find exact model numbers and take a few more pictures if needed. Any help you may provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
