I picked up an old Jacobsen with a somewhat homemade bucket on it. I say "somewhat" as the welds on the arms and bucket look professionally done, but there is a support bracket that looks homemade, so I am not ruling anything out yet. I am completely new to tractors, so starting from scratch. The tractor runs great and everything works, it just needs a little cleaning up, and undoing some bad wiring mistakes. I think it is a late 60's with a 12HP Kohler, but I'm not positive of that yet.

I was hoping someone could help me out with a first question. On the Electric PTO clutch, there looks to be a spring loaded pin that would have a corresponding bracket, but I can't see one, or what would be remianing of one.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

You're missing a whole plate. I have an extra one if you need.

Loader looks homemade but it looks like they did a good job. Also has the rare hydraulic lift on it. Nice tractor!

I can get you a pic of the bracket later today. I'd contact VIC above for the one he has.

Thanks alot! I may take you up on that. When I have a chance I may look to see if it would be easy to fab something up. What does the plate do besides hold the pin in place?

 

On another, and totally new guy note, I have a question on actually driving the thing. It's got the hydro static transmission, so my theory is that putting it in gear, and then using the pedal to put pressure on the belt engages or disengages the transmission, Correct? I assume it acts like a sort of clutch pedal does.

 

If I am correct, my pedal only seems to have about an inch or 2 of travel, so it doesn't really disengage anything.

Am I missing something, or is something off with my pedal.

 

Along the same lines, what does the knob do that i circled in yellow? It would seem to be a type of lock for the pedal?

That knob is the parking brake. Push the clutch pedal down and pull up on that knob all the way, then let off the pedal and it should stay down. If you need the pic of the bracket I can get it also.                                                                                                                                                                                  Roger.

If you have a pic of the brakect, that would be tremendously helpful and I'd really appreciate it. It's a tough one to visualize since it's all new to me.

Mines missing a hole in the top that would hold your pin. All you'd need to do is drill a hole in it and you'd be good to go. The large hole would be towards the lower front of the tractor if that helps for reference.

I think I may have found the plate. It appears that they previous owenr used it on the other side as a peice of scrap to make a bracket to mount an electric fuel pump. I am not sure, but I will get it off tomorrow and see exactly what it is.

 

Along those lines, the mechanical fuel pump was bypassed in favor of a 5 PSI Electric pump. It was on a switch, and everytime I have run it I have never turned it on as it floods the engine pretty quickly. It seems that the engine was running just off the gravity from the tank?

 

Any idea where I can get a rebuild kit for the mechanical pump?

I think I found a place to order the kit to rebuild the fuel pump.

 

I spent several hours last night cleaning up the wiring. There were splices and wires going everywhere.

The wiring diagram attached is the closest to my configuration. I've got everything run to where it should be, but I can't seem to figure out where the power supply would come from for the lights.

Was it the piece you needed?
