Boy Scott, I know where I can get a good set of measurements for my Ark loader to put on my JB now, unless you want to sell the frame. :smilewink:

Be glad to post the measurements and pictures of the mounts once I pull it off the tractor. I also will post the measurements of the weight box and its frame.

Hey Scott,

 

   I see two front wheels that sure look like they came off of a club car golf cart. LOL  Glad they worked for you.

So, now that you have it home, was that a score?
I didn't know about the loader frame. Is that factory?
Is that weight box factory?
Is this a fixer upper or a parts machine?
When I first saw it I knew someone on here would value it more than the seller.
But, I didn't expect you to come up and get it! I thought you would tell someone else to buy it.

Congrats on your acquisition!

Joe

Joe I appreciate the heads up you gave me! I am not home yet, about 2 1/2 hours away. Had to work my way back home today. The weight box and Fel mounts I believe to be factory. I got lucky that Dick had looked at it and knew more about it than what the pictures were showing. The deck with the drive shaft was a big bonus. Dick was kind enough to hold it (and clean it up and work on it for me) - If the motor runs I don't plan on parting it. I can get all the parts I need to complete my other JB and still have a pretty complete tractor left. I am pretty pleased with the deal. Thanks again for your help!

Few pictures of the fel mount -note the foot step on the mount- the factory one was taken off so the mount would fit.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1421790556.011436.jpg

Gotta wonder if that's the 27th D4-12 built.  Most don't start with #1, so it could be a very early D4-12.  Definitely a factory loader frame!

As many plates show, they lost or broke their #1 stamp & used a capital " i " , so maybe they lost or broke the numeral 8 stamp as well.

Not sure if you remember but a good while back, I was told by an old dealer that he had a few Bush Hogs that had Craftsman motors in them.......so when I saw the serial number of this motor I thought it might be a replacement motor. So I compared it to Brian's D4-12 motor serial number and it was very close to his. I am thinking that the really early D4-12's may have had these repainted craftsman motors in them. Daniel can you look at this picture of the crank and tell if it is the correct crank?? I have sent an email to my dealer friend to see if he remembers if the 12 was the BH that had the craftsman motors in them. Will let you know what he says.

He just confirmed the 1969 D4-12 (early ones) had the craftsman motors in them. Pretty cool find!!
