Yes I've seen that on a few Jacobsen's.
If I recall correctly, the government set noise level limits for garden tractors back in the seventies.
Jacobsen must have had over heating complaints. And, that was thier solution?

If someone cut them did areal good job. Both sides cut exactly alike no sharp edges ,mounts look factory spot welded. Look at pic #3 and you will see the middle vent hole is not cut out.

Thats strange, never seen one like that before!
Not saying that they don't exist, cause anything is possible. Thank you for sharing the pics.

I would think there would be some extra mounting points for the tabs to lock into somewhere on the rig? Definitely different!
Cheers!;)

Thanks for posting. Just thinking out loud- I wonder if it was a factory experiment if they just "clipped" the bottom of some existing full panels, and used the existing bottoms and  lower mounts "upside down" and crimped the lower free edge, and flipping the whole panel upside down. The bottom of the panel would now be the top.  It would make a good way to make use of existing inventory.

 

Do you have the pics of the mid mounts on the tractor for the lower mounts (if they exist?)

This was the way Jake did it back in the mid to late 80's before they discontinued the tube frame tractor. My dad had an 86? Jake 16 HP tractor and it had the half sides on it. Also had a spring in the toolbox for holding the seat up a little, and the seat switch in the toolbox as well, instead of in the seat cushion.

Yup, seen it, actually many of the newer Jake's had this. They made them into the 90's.
