I got a hold of this gem a few months ago. She is a very rough candidate for a restore. Being a T-1000 it will get restored but a donor Jacobsen 1000 will be used.

I will let the pics and videos do all the talking

That little diesel sounds pretty healthy.

Thanks. Very low hour Kohler kd350. I might take this tractor down to Florida Flywheelers in February as a butt buggy

Cool! Nice to get these oldies rolling again, and the diesel makes for a good transplant. I was bringing firewood in today and the weather was pretty good. I decided to take a few minutes to get the Porter Cable moving, since I finally got the foot pedals off of the parts tractor the other day. That was a two hour wrestling match with heating and soaking to get them off without breaking them. I put the belts on, seat on, rims and tires from a Wheel Horse cart on, and put fluid in the rear. The tractor runs great and the steering and transaxle seem to be in great shape. I have to make up a new wiring harness since the insulation is worn through in quite a few places on the original. Next step is making the new harness, battery hold down bracket, and testing out the electrical system. After everything checks out, the tractor will be torn down for fresh paint and decals.

Dude that looks good. I worked on my Porter today. I need to weld the bracket on the deck, and get a 1 in shorter belt

Thanks Dayton. I have to get front tires to put on the original rims. The rear tires are old Carlisle Indian head tires on IH marked rims from a cub original. I have the correct rear rims to put the tires on and that will happen during the restoration. I'll pick the best sheet metal, and I have to make a new tray for under the seat to bolt the fenders to. The original tray looks like Swiss cheese, and I may attempt to make a belt guard like the original, too. It's just good to get it running and driving after being rescued from the dump. You know the feeling, HA! I like the lines of the old Ford/ Jacobson tractors like the one you just rescued.
