I recently started refurbishing a 1974 Jacobsen GT12 tractor that was handed down to my father from my great uncle and then to me. My father acquired it in 1995 and we painted it up in Ford LGT
colors and did some mechanical work. In about 2006 the 12hp Kohler developed a bottom end knock and my father parked it. I had a friend of mine bring it here to KS from MD in late August and now it's apart (with adequate documentation of course). My same friend is a professional small engine mechanic who helps me with the project. I have basically determined the parts needed, but have struck out looking for the Jacobsen specific ones on the internet. I have talked to Eversharp Equipment in Ohio, who is supposed to have a large stock of NOS
parts, but they weren't able to come up with anything. I have also noticed that my type of tractor was sold primarily in the Rust Belt and not here in KS. Any leads on good used or NOS
parts would be appreciated.
