When I got my Super Chief 1450 & Tiller a while back, the tiller mount and belt tensioner were AWOL. Been looking for those parts for some time. Member Tomwendt said he had a tiller, but he lives in NY. I looked elsewhere for the parts needed for a while. Finally I contacted him to see if the tiller was still available. It was and he put it on a pallet and shipped via Fastenal. 10 days and $150 later, I now have 2 of these tillers, with one being complete. Now I can make the missing parts for the other one. I see a few things needing attention on it, but no big deal. Should be easy to fix.

Here's the tiller I just got. The paint is even in decent shape on it.

Here the one I got with the Jake.

The one I just got from Tom is an earlier unit, yet looks much better. Must of led a sheltered life. Tines on both look about the same, very little wear.

Now I just have to get a lift on the tractor. The tiller and pallet  weighed in at 200 lbs. Not a lightweight tiller!

Kenny,

Good deal on the Jacobsen tiller. This shipping with Fastenal is catching on. What is the purpose of the half moon bar that wraps around the tiller in the middle of it?

That sets the depth and keeps it steady in the ground. In pic 1 & 2, you can see the end that goes in the ground.

I think Fastenal was very speedy, as it shipped out on 12/31 from Niagara Falls, NY. They called me at 8AM this morning to come get it. $150 for 200 lbs.

Just for the heck of it, I looked up the belt for it. Jacobsen # 326946. That crosses to a NAPA 5L680W, 21/32" X 68". Wanted that documented for future use.

I found something in the manual that explains the bar usage.

Both of mine still have them. I hope weather evens out so I can work on this.

Got out some today. In pic 2 above, if you look at the area around the big springs, you can see a bend in the mount. It was way off to attaching to the Jake. So I tried several different ways of straightening it. Finally got out a scissor jack and used it to push the metal back into a state that allows it to be pinned to the tractor without forcing things. Cleaned some things and put some anti seize on shafts.

I got the FF out to take the rest of the tiller off the PU. It'll lift 200+/- lbs.

Here's a shot of the lift bar for the Hydro tractors. The parts list does not show this bar, only a part #. Also another pic of the tiller.

I got the Jake out today to get the lift mechanism working again. It was not moving very well at all, nearly rusted together. But, a little Mapp gas helped to get it all apart.

I use a brush for cleaning copper fitting to get the ID's cleared.

Then it all went back together with plenty of anti-seize applied.

I started the day trying to figure out how to mount the GM power steering pump. A bit of a quandary as the pump needs to be in front of the grille and way up in the air.

I put the tiller mount on to help figure things out.

After thinking about mounting this pump and the mass the mount would be to hold it in place, I think I'll just bite the bullet and get a linear actuator. Surplus Center has 2 that I think will work for around $180. I hope 500 lbs. will be strong enough for lifting the tiller. Since the original actuator's stroke was 4.75", I'll probably have to go for the one with 6" stroke.

You don't want to lift that big slug by hand?
