PostSubject: Jeremiah's General Lee Mud-Terrain Tractor [2019 Build-Off Entry]   Sun Feb 03, 2019 5:41 pm

Hey guys my name is Jeremiah and this is my General Lee themed lawn tractor build. It is a 1988 Jacobsen Homelite lt10 lawn tractor that originally came with a 10 horse Briggs & Stratton and a 3-speed 3 high low. I completely disassembled it last year. It had some extreme battery acid rust problems. The only thing I have done to it since I disassembled it was sand the hood down, cleaned the frame up, and drill new holes for the engine to slide back. I got so much more crap to do. I have access to a MST 206 if I can find a MST 205 to replace it with. I need to bye tires for it. The rear tires will be 22x12.5x8 Interco Super Swamper TSL. The front tires kind of depend on what front axle I run. If I'm able to weld up a solid front axle I will run 22x11x8 Naco Knobbys if I can't and I'm forced to run the original front axle I will run 21x7x8 sunf a003 tires. The frame will need some bracing to beef It up and I'd like to get a transaxle brace so the transaxle doesn't flex at high speeds. I will soon be purchasing 4) 4 bolt 8" rims with front hubs with built-in bearings and rear hubs with built-in keyway. Front and rear bumper so if I run into something nothing happens. I will be buying a 2500 lb Traveller winch from tractor supply. The new power plant that will be going on this build is a 15 horse Kohler OHV. I'm moved it back about an inch in the OHV cover still sticks through the grill so what I'm going to do is cut a little hole out in the grill and so the OHP cover will be sticking out kind of like a turbo look.  The front grill clip is destroyed and I'm not sure how I'm going to fix it. Ideas for really help me. I'm going to rewire the whole thing with heavy duty wiring. It's going to get a push button start, LEDs in the grill and on the front bumper, toggle switch, and kill switch. One thing I'm really excited about is I'm going to be wiring my Dixie horn. Sorry it wasn't in photo cuz I I wasn't able to find it. I haven't hidden somewhere lol. I think since I'm going to be trying to go 20 25 miles an hour a good pan seat tractor supply will help keep me from moving around a lot and 206 is getting a dock locked. It's going to be painted orange and black like it is now and I want to paint on some General Lee graphics that was on the 69 Dodge charger. I'm sure I'll be doing more but that's all I can think of at the moment. Hope you guys like the build.

Cool build, those Jacobsen LT's are really well built and quite nice looking as well. Good luck!

I have a dumb question. The tractor project thread that is was updating every time I did something to the Jacobson is no longer needed since I have entered in the build off correct? Or do I need to keep them both updated because it doesn't seem like there is a way to delete it?

You don't have to worry about updating the old thread, you can just essentially abandon it now that your Build-Off thread is underway.

Here's some photos of Jacobsen before it became mine. It had been sitting there for probably 25 years. Tires was all flagged dry-rotted with soil all surrounding them. The deck was stuck in the soil to. Our 2005 Polaris sportsman 800 was struggling to pry it free from the Earth lol.

A few parts came in the mail yesterday. A new air filter, pre-filter, spark plug, hose clamps, gas line filter, and oil filter. I got five more shipments coming in the mail but it may take another week. Samus for the Jacobsen and some is for the Montgomery.

@SebastianAlbrecht most people would have seen it and said forget it but for some reason I really liked the body style. it cleaned up pretty good once I got home and pressure washed it. The frame on the other hand was a rust bucket.

I clean the frame the best I could but there's some areas that the acid just ate through the metal.

The original Briggs & Stratton 10 horse Flathead carb was unfixable. I picked up a Craftsman LT 150 that had a 15 horse Kohler OHV. That's the engine on the run in it.

@SebastianAlbrecht I wanted to get that little 10 horse running and blow it up once I hit 500 subscribers but I don't want to put any money into it. It needs a new spark plug, carb, and starter before it will run.

I wouldn't blow up a reliable quality American made Briggs Engine! If I was U, I would fix it up and keep it as a spare when the junky Krahper decides to quit working

@SebastianAlbrecht I've owned a lot of mowers over the years not counting my parents. We've had a large amount of B&S over the years and a few Kohler's. This Kohler has been the best one I've ever had. This 15hp Kohler OHV has more power than my 18hp and 17.5hp B&S OHVs. It's pressure lubed + has the look of the old flathead. It's a keeper. That is a good idea to get it running again. Always good to have back ups
