Hello GT talk,
I know this site will be very helpful in working on some of my toys. I just got the LGT 165 which is in pretty good shape except for a few small missing parts. My son has an old Gilson 16HP hydro that needs a carb. The last toy is an 18.5 Hp AYP that cuts grass around the house. May be asking for info when looking for or making the missing parts.

Thanks

Mike G

:welcome: to the forum. Nice to have you aboard.
I have a Ford 165 and it seems to be a very well built tractor. If I were you I sure wouldn't hesitate to do what it takes to refurbish it. I purchased mine with a bad engine so it's on the things to do list.
Good luck with your project and a few photos would be nice to see :smile1:

Welcome! Sounds like the start of a herd. When you can, how about posting some pics for us to look at.
