That's different. Like the passenger seat. I would do my best to leave it original or real close. Just my opinion.
Dummy me! Welcome to the Forum.

I don't think I would alter it either. I can't help with identifying it but it is a very cool piece and doesn't look like it was fabbed or molested in any way. Well maybe the addition of the second seat but that could easily be remedied.

thanks for the welcome, the guy I bought it from braced up the deck and the rear seat was added to assist in keeping up the HEAVY deck. He drove it around his nieghborhood for fun. I would like to put it back to origanal. This is way I want / need more info, so i do it right.

thanks again

Welcome to GTtalk Craig,
I agree, I would leave it as original as you can. Maybe if you are a welder or know someone who is, you can get them to reskin the deck and get rid of the extra wieght up front. I thought it was a Yazoo, before I read the post, very nice find on that old Jake!!!!

I first thought it was a Yazoo also. I bought this one for the engine. VERY nice Jacobsen!

Hey Daniel, there's a deck for a tow behind mower. Wish I was closer, I'd talk you out of it.

The deck is not with me any more. It was pretty rough, so I kept the spindles & casters then tossed the rest. And after I read your post, I realized I posted the wrong pic. That's not the actual Yazoo I had, but one just like it.
Sorry for hi-jacking Craigbrothers!

Those casters could be used for a lot of things.
Sorry for the hijack.

Welcome!
I saw two of these at work in the mid to late '50's at the city park in Emmett, Idaho. Very interesting, even to me as a youngster. I don't know what happened to them, but I don't see them anymore (I've lived here most of my life), but they were definitely this type of mower. They also sported pull-behind decks. They made pretty short work of a 20-acre park! Also, as I recall, one of the operators was a mentally handicapped man who lived in town and didn't have other means of support. Great job for him, I think. I vote for restoration, too. Good luck!
