If the front pto clutch is not mounted, the casting above the crankshaft will have K3?? cast in.


Clutch is on it and oh yeah, It has a GREAT looking deck under it. I will take a look anyway.

Boy Brian, you really made out on that one. I hope you figure out which one it is soon. Great deal, congratulations.

Well, I got the engine cover off and found out that it is a LGT145 with a K321 Kohler. I forgot to mention that it also came with a really nice 48" S.D. Mower deck, some surface rust and tight spindles.

Kenny posted this picture showing where the I.D. tag is located, mine is gone.

The model on that would be either 09JC3311 or 3312. I found a place with lots of Ford GT decals yesterday. Here's a link:

I noticed you don't have a rear PTO shaft, nor a sleeve hitch for it. Talk to skyrydr2, he can make some of the pieces for the rear end or make you a 3-point if that's what you want on it. If you need any measurements for some things, give me a holler.

Brian, are you going to do a restoration or just refurbish and use it? You'll want to have a good hard look at the engine. The rebuild kits on Ebay are quite reasonable for these. About 110$ for pretty much everything. Main bearings and valve guides are another 45 I think.

Nice score Brian! I got my 1450 Jake the same way and never had even seen one before that. Love mine! Mows great and plenty of power. With chains, they plow snow great too. Then it becomes addictive as I found a older GT 14 and a great shape 1650 sold as a pair. Yup they came home with me! Get the bugs worked out of it and you will have yourself a great tractor!

Nice ford Brian, I am still impressed with how good my 145 and 165 pull.

Edit:
Also if the sleeve hitch you got with it doesn't fit. I have an article on here about how i built mine.

Thanks Chuck, I think I will get it running and see what shape the engines in, I was told it uses oil. Then I will decide what I am going to do with it.
