Re: Jim Dandy Tractor question
OK, that serial number puts your tractor at a 1969. Now, if your dad's has the L shaped gas tank, it's probably somewhere around a 1965 to a 68. I think they first used those tanks in 65. That's the year of the one in my avitar right now. It had an L shaped tank as well. in 64, the hoods were more rounded in the front and bolted on.
Yes, your dad's should be a suitable parts tractor for yours. Pretty much the same everything. If his had a 12hp, then it was closer to the 68 year. Sometimes they came through with the serial number scratched on the top of the frame uner the sheet metal where you left foot rests. If you have the sheet metal, you may want to check that.
I said I work on them; I never said I fix them!
