attachicon.gif3.JPGattachicon.gif7.JPGattachicon.gif7.JPGattachicon.gif8.JPGattachicon.gif24.JPGHave a 1969 Jac 1000 that was on the way to scrap, my son spotted it (W/ 38" snow thrower 42" deck) and brought it to me. It
was in really bad shape.With a big cleanup and a carb rebuild and new pts & con had the engine running. After a partial
teardown,sand blasting & sanding I painted it. looked pretty good(I don't have any pics from that stage). We have 52 acres of land so decided to make a wet area machine. replaced the front wheels with wider wheels & tires with rear wheels from an old craftsman tractor and added duales on rear. Made a mount w/ winch& bumper on front. use it for all kinds of hauling with small trailer I built last year. Looks great and really hauls. 7

Here's a picture of a '67 Chief 1000, original besides the newer rear tires when I bought it. I was told it previously belonged to a dentist that always kept it inside. My brother-in-law has it now. He bought it from me after he helped me mow with it once. He parked it. We had gone in the house already and a minute or so later my sister-in-law said "The tractor is leaving."  I couldn't understand what she meant. Then we all watched as it started rolling downhill in my yard at about 20mph before it crashed into a tree. After that it needed a new dash tower, grille and gas tank but the rest survived surprisingly well. He ended up having the grille welded and I straightened out the hood with a wood-block and a hammer. Not sure if they did crash ratings back then...

attachicon.gifPICT1040.JPG Here is my 69 Jac 1200 when I got her.

 

attachicon.gif1352911368364.jpg Here she is after Paint

 

attachicon.gifPICT1047.JPG Here is my supposed parts tractor, 65 Jac 800

 

attachicon.gifPICT1083.JPG Here is the parts tractor after paint

 

attachicon.gifPICT1127.JPG And again the "parts" tractor after I made the custom seat and fabricated a sleeve hitch.

 

The Jac 1200 currently has the engine out. The block is bored, valve job done. Just waiting to be completed. It will also have the 42" blower on the front.

 

The Jac 800 is my main yard tractor, She is one heck of a worker!!! I leave the front blade on for snow, and I use it to trailer the cart for yard clean ups. I just love these old ,machines!!!

 

Once I get settled in at my new job I'll be back to working on them.

 

Can you share your sleeve hitch design? I want to build one for my 64

Tore down to bits and pieces, rebuilt starter generator, cleaned up engine new head gaskit, valve job, points and condenser. cleaned and sand blasted and primed a lot of parts.Some pictures as of now.017.JPG 101_0921.JPG 101_0916 - Copy.JPG 100_0799.JPG 100_0832 - Copy.JPG 100_0833 - Copy.JPG

1968 Jacobsen Chief 800 I bought from a local guy last summer. Original condition. Never did a thing to it and has been super reliable. Strong tractor!
