I threw the wood piece I had away since it was rotten on the bottom. So will cut a new one today. Thanks!

Well I finally looked at the serial plate......hmmmmmm.....Model- T-12. Serial # 13470007
So I have a combination T-10 and T-12? Factory or one of the previous owners? Does the serial number have any significance?

So At some point someone combined two tractors,(since I have a 10hp briggs along with the hood). Well I bought it for a back up mower, so not a big deal. I do prefer the hydro for mowing.

Its built by Simplicity

yeah it does look like some of the Simplicitys I have seen, but I always thought Homelite and Jacobsen were part of the same company as I have seen a lot of their L&G stuff that had both names on it.  Homelite itself has seemed to "go away", do not see much of anything from them no more, not even like the hand held hedge cutters, weed eaters leaf bowers and such.

 

I had always associated Homelite and Jacobsen much like you would Camaro and Firebird... same stuff different emblems

Homelite had Jacobsen build their garden tractors after 1976.

When we put this tractor together out of the crate from the factory there was no board between the battery and the motor. I put a piece of metal in there just to make sure it didn't slide forward to the motor. Even though it had hold down bolts on both sides of the battery we still did this. Over the years and many, many, many batteries later the hold down bolts and clips were lost or put away and a rubber bungee was used to hold it. Last spring I changed the hold down and repainted the battery box. Put down a bed of natural rubber and fashioned a new hold down for the battery. Works well. Recently I was going through a couple of boxes that came from my dad's garage. I found the original clips and bolts for the battery. The original battery was the size of a car battery back then. Just thought I would throw this out there for you.                                                                                                                        Roger.
