My JBI with the TJD twin engine also has the cutout, and the seller told me he thought it was a 70 model but didn't know for sure.  He gave me the loose tag in the owner's manual, but dang if I didn't lose track of it.  I am betting he was right and it's at least a 70 model.  Now I switch my position on the cutouts....they were added later, not earlier.  Yours is almost surely a 69 model Scott.

You are decoding right.  Neither of mine with OE engines have more than 7 numerals in the last set of numbers.

So my Serial 618 is a 69 model? Is it the earliest we have record of? Need to check my hood, but I don't remember any cutout if it.

Here is a link to a video I did at lunch....only had a short time so I did not get all around the tractor.http://www.youtube.c...h?v=IfngEMT1dbI

Couple of things I seem to be noticing- its hard to start....when it does a lot of smoke....seems to want to start if I slowly turn the key back to the stop position. Almost like if I feather it right I can hit the sweet spot.....think this switch is bad? This motor runs well...then slows down...then picks back up and cycles some...then goes back down....then finally settles down and ran fine. The throttle needs some adjustment....it slowly falls back down and the motor rpms drop....

 

And something Daniel can give me some guidance on.....I have a lot of play in my steering....as in almost a half of a steering wheel play.......what can I do to fix this?

You didn't ask me, but the easiest way to fix that issue is to sell it to me!!

 

 

Very nice JB Scott, you will need to watch the shaft sticking out of the side of the steering box and see if and when it turns. Either you need to rebuild the box or just adjust it. does the steering shaft rise and fall as you turn it?

Will check the shaft. The steering shaft does not rise or fall when it is turned. There is almost a half turn of play in there steering wheel.

The HD steering gearbox is different from most Ross units, so I'll look at my JBI's with std gearbox and see how they adjust so I don't "steer you wrong".    :smilewink:

Daniel, Here is kind of a photo of the steering gear box, it's a Ross I believe and should have an adjustable follower that will help if not too worn. This is the one out of my JB I.
