Fellow member Fiveltretr held this for me till I was able to pick it up. I greatly appreciate him working with me. Serial number 652. It has the rear pto option and most everything is there but the middle shaft. I will decide what to do with it, for now it will sit in the yard under a tarp. For sure the rear pto set up will go on my JB1 that is in good shape.

Nice Scott!  The mid-shaft is easy to fab.  Common rectangular shaft and quick connect.  I've never used my original JB's rear pto.  I need to see if the seals will still hold oil and find a universal quick connect that fits it, or just use the slip-on adapter I bought, then make a shaft.  The 3pt 4242 rotary mower I have didn't come with the shaft, so I built one that fits the (11 spline?) shaft to run it off my other tractors.

Looks worthy of restoration, Scott. Just make the middle shaft - you know you want to. I am fascinated to see that the JB I decal on the left side of the hood is not straight, but the one of the right side is. Sort of slapdash application.

I'm interested to hear how easy it is to get the carb adjusted and running right when the exhaust is blowing right into the air intake.   :wallbanging:

Looks like a nice project, but if you decide you don't want that side step I'd surely be interested. :thumbs:

Looks like good enough to save that one. All the tin on it, and not bent up.  I don't know these machines, but was wondering if the pto is geared down? looks like that in that rear case.  Is it a 540 then when normally 2000 if direct?  Interesting rear hitch too. That must be home-made I guess and 3pt removed?  I like those models with the tool box fenders, seems they would be handier than most on other tractors.

Price list says 700 rpm on the gear box. Rear hitch is home made. 3pt arms were an option.

Few more pictures today after pressure washing it. Note where the reflectors came off, the original paint is still fresh. I would guess someone put those reflectors on when it was new.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451681265.397171.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451681292.591220.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451681310.607570.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451681328.276171.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451681342.125941.jpg

Getting this JB provides another piece of the puzzle. The HD-12 and JB gear boxes looked the same in the few pictures I had seen, but different part numbers. In getting this one with the rear gear box, I was able to compare the two to look for differences.
Note S-2962, the one on the deck, is for the HD-12. It does not have the needed 4 holes to mount to the JB. Part number S-2963 is mounted on the JB, note the larger bolts used to mount it. Very similar in size, but different in how they are set up to mount.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451684606.024323.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451684634.031140.jpg

It's odd the gearboxes are different being the changes are subtle.  You'd think they'd have used the JB type on both it and the HD.

The spindles have had issues in the past. One was broken at some point, the other has been extended, most likely to improve the steering radius. Lucky for me, in my parts I got from my good friend Jack, I have good parts to replace them.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451701547.487138.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1451701561.951213.jpg
