Hi All, I am a newbie I acquired an old tractor and have no idea what it is. Any help in figuring out the make and model would be greatly appreciated. Then I have to figure out the belt system, etc. Here are some pics. Thanks for the help! SeanHood_Off_Lft_Shift.jpg

I haven't a clue either, that is one wicked looking blade though.

Do you happen to have a pic of the dash and of the side of it with the hood on?

Welcome to GTT.

Going by the steering wheel only, 1975 cuda.:D

Second thought, nope, don't have a clue.

Have you tried to fire it up?

Almost looks like an old Magna Trac garden tractor to me but so hard to tell. The seat system is similar tho

The handle on the steering I assume is the throdle I don't remember seeing a garden tractor of this size with that on it in my 70 plus years. Maybe it's a proto-type?

I dont know what it is either, but it was at some point a chain drive to the final. In the last picture it has a idler sproket inside the belt.

:wave: Sean713 Welcome to GTTalk! Great to have you with us. I wish I could help you identify your tractor. Maybe some more pics of the side with hood on and the dash panel, as was mentioned before, might help us help you. Is there a tag somewhere that might have a clue on it? At any rate, it looks like a great project! Hope you enjoy the forum.

I suspect Timothy is onto something here. The shape of the grill and Red/White Color scheme hints at it being a Jacobson

Is that an emblem in the lower right side of the grill. I can't make it out in the picture?
