Just curious. I think there may be more than one variation of the Jabalina/Javalina serial plate design. Please post a picture of your plate so we can compare. Does yours look like this?

Yes, it's the 14hp one with the 6 bolt hubs. I don't know if I got the I D tag for the 12 HP one. I don't remember which is which between JB I & II..

14hp with the 6 bolt rear hubs is the JB-I. JB-II had the 12hp Briggs and 5 bolt hubs. They gave the hubs a JB-II parts number but the cast number on the hubs are the same as a D4-10. Daniel knows way more about these models than me. I always had in my mind that since the JB-I was the first production model, that the JB -II was its replacement. But they continued to build both models through 1971. I believe they did it as a price point. The JB-I listed for $1560 versus the JB-II listed for $1360.

I just have to remember that 1 is bigger then 2. I guess that is what I'm struggling with.

Thanks Scott..

Been busy running today, and getting dark out.  I'll get pics of the 2 ID plates on my three JB's.  One had the plate removed when I bought it.

Without looking at any sales sheets, I kinda wonder if both models started at the same time.  Seems the JB1 would have been just a "JB" if there wasn't a JBII from the beginning???

As usual, you are right. You could buy either a Javalina 12 or a Javalina 14 when they first came out in 1968. They listed them as JV-14 and JV-12 in 1969. Then in the 1971 price list they are listed as JB-I and JB-2.......( not sure why I thought the JB -1 was the first model - except I recall some brochures where the decal on the hood of the JB did not designate either I or II )

That's why I was asking for the picture of the plates. I think we will see Javalina like the one Brian and I posted for the early models, one with the model number being JV-II like a Jack has for the middle models, and then last to be built have a JB -I or JB-II on them. Just guessing at this point.

Looks like 9.......80% are JB-1's. I am still going back through emails, and the site to make sure I have not missed any. Will try to post something in the next week. I could use everyone to look over it to make sure I captured all the numbers-also to give me more information, ie motor serial number, plate type, etc if they have not already.

Here's a question probably only Daniel can answer. It has been pointed out to me the dimensions in the brochures have the JB-I larger than the JB-II . I would think the different size tires might make some difference, but the overall length of the JB-I is 10" longer than the JB-II. I did go back and look at the manuals and both the frame and front axle has different part numbers for each tractor.

Here is the sheet with the descriptions of each model.

Reloaded the picture - this one may be easier to read.

Yes, there are size differences in the chassis.  Now that Brian has a JBII, he can measure both chassis to see the exact differences....when he gets time of course.
