I hope that wasn't in filmed in full speed hydro setting!   :rolling:


I got to read how to adjust the speed control, moving forward slowly is second nature to this one. :-)

Looks great Scott, I can use all the detailed photos from all around the tractor that you can take and post. You got a very nice JB I there buddy, I'm jealous!!


If the sunshine is out tomorrow, I will get some pictures. I have a good bit of JB parts in my bins, no dashes, but parts you may need just let me know.

No pictures today, sorry Brian! I finally got it running well, it does not like having a little gas in the tank, don't ask me how much of the day it took me to figure this out. Something is still not right with the throttle and choke. The choke keeps getting hung up in the front motor shroud. I can get it to crank and run, but I have to turn the throttle at the carburetor to get it started. Also motor seems to act like it is slowing down, then will surge back up, every now and then. Still going to rebuild this carb, may help with some of the issues.
But it runs, hydraulics work, so 90% of the battle has been won. By the time I got all this figured out, it was too late in the day to take pictures.

Had to unbolt the engine this evening to get to the motor serial number, etc. 320424-0130-01-6910201

 

From what I have read here is the decoding of these numbers

 

32 + cubic inches of motor

0- basic style of engine

4- horizontal shaft

2-sleeve bearing, flange mounted, splash lube

4- electric starter/ 110 or 230 volt gear driven with alternator  (starter generator)

 

0130-01   determines who it was built for, decals, etc

 

6910201 - built in 69 - I seem to have missed a number.....should have had 8 numbers and I have 7....not going to go back and unbolt the engine at this point.

 

Here is a link to the Briggs and Stratton site to decode your motor. I am sure it is listed some where else in the forum.....just another shortcut to it.

So what you have is a Snow Blower motor.

Most snow blowers with electric start are 110 volt.

Plug it in, push a button and it cranks.

Alternator on them usually powers a light.

So bush hog used a snow blower motor on them?? I am 99.999% sure this tractor is original. It has a starter/generator on it. No 110 hooks ups or true alternator on it???

Yes and I happened to take a picture of it and the numbers I posted for the model number does match what is one the shroud. This tractor has original paint and the bolts under the dash are still silver.......it may have put another motor in, but what I was told was that it had been rebuilt by a machine shop. with the shape it is in, I would not think the shroud would have rusted out and they put another one on???? hmmmmmm

Just found another site showing briggs model info. Interesting.....according to it, this motor is a horizontal shaft with a vacu-jet carb (99% sure they call the one on my motor a flo-jet carb)....but.....4 on this sheet designates "electric starter/generator 12 volt gear drive"......so maybe since mine is an earlier model the BS sheet does not match up to mine 100%??

 

Here is the link to this decode sheet  http://www.planopowe...del_number.html

Scott, I got the shot engine that came on the JBI that is now Hogzilla.  I just took my flashlight & pen & paper down to the shed with a flashlight.  Yours IS an original engine for sure, as ALL your numbers match ALL my old OE engine numbers exactly!

Your tractor "might" be a 70 model, or maybe just a late 69 model, as your hood doesn't have a cutout for air filter clearance.  My hood had a factory cutout for the filter. I never seen later ones with this cutout, so I'm thinking they changed filter type later on???

BTW...I only read final 7 numbers also, but it looks like there may be a lightly stamped number following, but hard to tell by flashlight, plus the engine was in a cramped spot & I had to read upside down.

If you only see 7 then maybe I wrote down the correct numbers, so the build date could be 10-20-1969 on my motor....that would fit what you were thinking about the hood not having the cut out and being a late 69 or even a 70 model. Serial number was 636 if that helps in placing the build date.

Went back out again.  Could just barely see the numbers on my OE JBI's engine, but they are 320424-0127-01-6908111  It's tractor serial number is 554.  I figured it to likely be a 69 model.  It doesn't have the hood cutout.  

 

WAIT, I just noticed the Hogzilla's serial number is 694, so the cutout is for a later tractor than my original condition JBI.  That or it was an awfully perfect cutout made by an owner.  I bet Hogzilla is a 70 model!  Kinda makes more sense they may have added the cutout on later series.  If you notice Scott, your hood is nearly or is touching the filter top.  Maybe they started cutting them out later??   Heck, all this time I thought the Hogzilla JBI was the oldest!  I haven't paid attention to the serial numbers in a long time.
