Man that one is in very nice condition. I guess. you will leave it all original?


That's what I am thinking. I have the nos seats for it - may repaint the rims and leave the rest like it is for now. Pictures always make them look better than they are in person.

I am going to need a door and hinge for one of the boxes. I broke off the back of one of the head lights last night- don't ask me how or why- just think "that was a bad idea" and that's how I broke it.

Was it the left headlight?  Did it have the special "port" to shine light into the tool box?

Daniel it the right one. I need to check the left to see if it has the port in it.

The right one is definitely a plain bulb, so no biggie there.

Troy 
I still talk about you dragging/lifting my first D4-10 with the frozen transmission up on that trailer. You are da man in my book!

 

Wasn't a problem Scott. You know that you can call on me anytime, however, it appears that the tractors you are buying recently, seem to be getting bigger in size. Can't guarantee that I'll be able to throw the bigger tractors around like I did your first one, but I'll do what I can. :thumbs:

Had a chance to look over the JB last night. I started lubricating any thing that moved and looking at the carburetor I am going to have to pull it and clean it up since it has a lot of varnish in it from sitting up- looks like the gas slowly leaked out and therefore throttle and choke are both stuck. (It is not stuck due to weathering since it has stayed inside all this time) I pulled the oil stick out and the oil was brand new- clear on the stick. I was told the motor had been rebuilt by a machine shop and that it probably did not have 3hours on the motor. I am thinking this is probably pretty accurate. I will try to get the carburetor cleaned tomorrow, and see if I can get this thing running.

I poured a little Marvel Mystery oil into the spark plug hole and turned it the motor by hand several times. I am sure it was bone dry in there from sitting all these years.

The tires are new and when I got there one of the rear tires was a little slack. I filled it up then and it is still holding air so no tube for it.

Just hoping for no big surprises at this point.

Well the back blade ends up being a bonus in the deal. Bush Hog did offer a 60" blade and based on the description this is what I have. Part number is S-4244 cost was $107. Note says you need to buy item number 38 on the price list. Item 38 is the 3pt lift kit for the JB series. It is in the 1971 price list.
In the 1969 price list, it shows the same part number but for a 48" blade 3pt adjustable. Same weight as the 60". I suspect this is a typo and it's the same 60" blade.

Now that's great. You got a BH back blade. :dancingbanana:

Jack reminded me I had this in my pile of parts I got from him. BH part number S5250- Stabilizer Kit for the JB series 3-PT hitch. Just got to figure how it goes on the tractor.

I bet the piece that only has 2 holes in it bolts between the left link nad the center link. the other end would have all those holes to bolt to the left lower arm.

A stabilizer bar MUST have it's swivel pin aligned with the pins on the front of the lift arms as circled in the pic.  Looks like it would bolt to the rear axle retainer bolts on one side or the other.  If you have 2 sets, one can go on each side. Like color circles go together.

 

I redone my marking so it's easier to follow.  I had circles on opposite sides.  This shows as it would be mounted on the left rear....I believe I'm right.
