100_1524.jpg 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.

Welcome to the forum! Have you tried New Holland? They have parts for the LGT tractors. Yours would be the model 3220. You can try Messicks here: New Holland Parts Lookup Online Catalog
I grew up just NE of Wichita.

:wave: relic7680 Welcome to GTTalk! I'm afraid that I don't knnow much about the Fords or Jakes, but it sounds like Kenny has you going in the right direction. It sounds like that's not only a family heirloom, but your first GT. Be warned, they're VERY addictive LOL! One leads to two leads to ten and so on! We hope that you enjoy the forum and post your progress as you go along with the project! Thanks for signing up!
