After seeing the left box lid, I know mine (wherever it is) doesn't have that sticker.  None of mine had any signs of a console safety switch that I can make out either, but now I have something in particular to look for.  Not a bad looking JBII.....glad you snagged it Peter!

Just talked to Peter and he is going to keep this one original, I was glad to hear that as this one looks really clean. Man, Pete is in the Hot Bed of BH up in that area. He picked this one up in the same area that his other one and both of mine came from.

Congratulations Peter! You are going to like that JB.....so much, you may have a hard time going back to one of the D series tractors!

 

Awesome to find out what the other decal looked like. Please post a good shot of that .....maybe someone can scan it and have them made.

Same goes for the battery box decal. I will see if I can be a better shot of mine as well....

Look forward to you putting it back together!

Titus will see what the other guys say, but the manual calls for 23-8.5-12 suburban tires. In the "tires" sheet it does not list a 23-10.5-12 tire. That being said, you never know, they may have run out of tires and put on what ever they had in the shop.

Peter,, According to the JB I & JB II Spec sheet that Daniel uploaded here, the JB II should have 23 X 8.50- 12 rear tires on it. The JB I should have 26 X 12 - 12 rear tires.

Titus, after conversing with Jack, I took another look at the pictures, I have seen another model that had some of the same attributes as yours. This other tractor was in the same 2700's and about 40-50 numbers below yours. HIs too had JBI and JBII parts. Note your left hand box has only 2 handles not 3 like the typical JBII. Also note the front of your tractor has a place that looks like for one grill protector not two. This tractor was set up the same way. Again 1 protector is typical of a JBI. The 5 bolt hubs are typical of the JBII. I would be real curious to your parking brake set up- the pictures do not show it, but I suspect it is like a JBI with the parking brake pull knob on the left side by your leg. Not sure about the front axles set up- I think it is the JBII set up but not 100% sure. Maybe Brian can confirm it either way.

 

This other tractor too had the scratches/cleaning up area around the serial number. So your previous owner did not do this, I think BH did this. Maybe they took a JBI and changed it to a JBII to fill an order??? This differences, to me, make your tractor that much more interesting. Congrats on a nice find!

UPDATE:  Jack noticed it and now that he has brought it to my attention ....its obvious........note the scratched off area is where "Javelina" was on the serial plate. They scratched off the name to put the model number. Good catch Jack!! Also this may have been done because of the situation with Bush Hog using the Javalina name and AMC not liking it.
