I love the top of the dash chute handle rather than bending down.

Trans is busted and the parts are nla.
Too bad as it does look really well cared for. I take it donor machines are NLA as well?

They pop up every once in a while. It's worth about $200 on its very best day not broken. Putting the engine on an old Ariens and the tires look brand new. Probably be better off a donating to the cause.

I have four or five of those guys on my Craigslist out here. I also have one in the driveway :devil:

What parts are you looking for in the trans ?? Mine came with a chewed up jackshaft and I had to build it as it was NLA.

I've had two of the old Jakes....make sure you do the impeller kit if you plan to keep it.....won't throw wet stuff at all.

Thought I'd find out just in case I need one down the road. I pulled up their web site and there doesn't seem to be a way to contact them on there, only phone.

How much is that part? It's great that someone makes a replacement for it... but Jacobsens don't fetch a lot of $.
I tried to contact them with no luck. The used ones that sold on eBay was $50-$60. Imo it's not worth it. After parts and labor it's better to salvage what's good and give away or junk the rest.

I have no interest in keeping a machine like this. I think the engine is undersized for a 26" machine.

Those shafts seem to be a common issue, this is off my Ariens, Made the new one from 440 SS so no rusting issues.

If you get the numbers off the engine parts should still be available for it. It's the blower itself that parts are scarce for.
