I have never heard of a tractor like this. Is it a Jacobsen?

Hello All,
I had a Cheif in the past. Sold it and a Jari to a fellow. He wanted the Cheif to restore, I remember it had a single wheel on it with a sickle mower. Yellow in color, what was left. And the name tag. I think it was B/S powered

Thank you all for your comments. I am new to this type of thing, I thought comments would show up in my e-mail. I will try to post pics. if I can get one of my kids to help me get them.

Yes it is a two wheeler Big Chief made by Great Lakes with a reverse pulley. I last had it running in the 70's. I think it has a Kohler engine. Manufactured in early 50's as far as I can tell. I have a plow, cultivator, harrow and disc attachment.
