I was holding out with my first thread. During the hunt to get my grandfather's tractor back my uncle came up with this one. (different uncle then the one who let it go) He knew where my grandfather's went and was afraid it would be too far gone even if I could get it. This one was in the guys basement for 30 years, this one has the axle nut welded on the shaft. But I cleaned the carb, changed the points and condensor and she's running.... but with a wobbly wheel. So I went from none... to two in a matter of days.

Thanks, this one runs great. It's going to be nice to have a complete one to look at to fix the other one. The only thing is the jackshaft for the mower deck is broken too. I'm going to try to fab something up for that. Next time it's outside I'll get some better pictures.

Nice JB, but with 5 lugs, it appears as this one is a JBII, which should have a 12HP Briggs.  No matter the model...she's extra nice!

It does have a 12hp, and I thought it was a JBII but it has the parking brake lever on the side box...

It is almost surely a JBII. That or engine and hubs have been changed. There are chassis difference that can verify the model for sure.

 ok, so I now have two JBII's but the parking brakes are in different spots on both machines... these things confuse me. But I do know its fun to drive, just like I remember it as a kid! :driving_big_tractor:

What's the serial number and how is the model listed? One of yours may be an early model and the other a later model. Just thinking with the "javelina" decal on the hood this one is an early one. I am looking at it on my phone - looks like this one has the parking on top of the saddle box? No matter it looks to be in great condition.

Correct this one is on the saddle box...

 

Here's the kicker this one is Serial number 2513. Only 6 off from the other one which is 2519.

What is the model designation on the serial plate? I think Daniel will agree that we have seen JBII models with some JBI attributes before.

The JBII also has 16x6.50/8 front rims & tires.  The JBI has 18x8.50/8.  On most Bush Hog models there are confusing differences.  One has to get used to being surprised.

That I'll have to check tomorrow when I can get to it, I have to move tractors around to get to it. I only have a shed.

Both have 18x8.50/8 rims and tires so...

Could have been built with whatever they had on hand at the time.  Or it may have been ordered equipped as it is.  That's what frustrates me about Bush Hog destroying all the build records.  All these questions could have been answered if they had kept those records.

  As far as the rear hubs, rims and tires...they are JBII parts, but who knows.
