This is the Hi-Low project tractor I have asked about. The tractor was picked up this week from Fastenal. It was a Wisconsin tractor. So far I dumped some gas down the carb and got it to fire. I bought a carb kit and a new muffler off ebay today. I will need to get tubest for the front. The hi-low is functioning I THINK? has any one played with one?

Last pic is shipping damage

Interesting! I have never seen the High/Low feature yet!

 

Good luck and I will be looking forward to seeing how this progresses!

Interesting setup. Too bad about the damage. Should be able to weld it up and call it good.

I recently discovered on my Jacobsen Super Chief ( 1967-1969) a hydro fluid leak in my Hydro-Gear hydrostatic slip differential transmission.  It appears to the in the hydro unit as the reservoir was empty.  Before I tear down the transmission, I would like to know where I can purchase after market parts for the hydro pump and motor.  It is a Hydro-Gear transmission.

 

Hydro-Gear tells me that they went out of business a few years post production of this model.  Re-organized and back in business a few years ago.  Looking for parts.

 

Jim

Sometimes it best to buy a parts tractor. Bearings and seals are easy. Wear parts are not

What comes next is the sad but necessary part. The hi-low trans will be removed and rebuilt. It will be going in my Ford T-800. My Ford T-800 trans will be going into this. I have another Jacobsen and 4 decks coming my way in the next week or two. I might be getting another T-800 also. I have found a mint front mount reel mower for the Jacobsen tractors. And to top it off I have a trip in the next month or two to get 2,108 minneapolis moline
