I'll have to look? I hope the tag is still there?

After perusing New Holland, seems this was an option on several decks. Including the 09jc9835 that I have. Nice to know.

I didn't notice it when I first seen the pics. Took a second look yesterday and seen that. What is the model of the ones with the adj.?


Hey ;

i wish I knew the model but have been told it is a 42" Ford deck there.

The manual I read on it sure as heck looks a lot like it.

Does anyone know where I can buy American made halogen replace headlights , 4" X 2 " for this rig?

Truck lite is made here might look there.

All the best

The parts listing shows the adjustable pieces. There are a number if different model #'s for a 42" deck, depending on year and slight differences. That's why model #'s can play a big part if figuring which deck/part you have. They may all look the same, but are just a bit different, thus the different model #.
As far as the headlights, I haven't looked very hard into changing mine. Too many other things going at the moment.

The ones in my 165 work pretty well as do the ones In my 125 also . They work a lot better than most I have seen. You can actually see what your doing with them and they are stock ! Just the brightest bulbs you can find.

Well it's about as done as done is going to get.

I thought I'd share a few of the finished job with anyone who just might be interested . Also might pickup a cab for it, gets cold out there in the night!

On the Blower I noticed wear on the chains, not sprockets so cut all new three chains and installed. Rear Impeller bearing was rough, replace it with a Timken , U.S.A. bearing.

Used Valspar Farm Implement Oil Based paint on all of it by spraying. Didn't get to rubbing it out.

Ready for the snow...

Thanks for the help

I wonder if olcowhand can do those?
Just for grins. what if the white stripe was in the groove(just below Jacobsen) with Homelite above, Jacobsen below? Looks to me like Homelite is about 3" tall, Jacobsen 2.5".

I could do those once plow days are over and I got the time. I would just need dimensions. Putting the stripe in the indention might be a bit tricky to do though. Getting it to lay down smooth in the groove with the decal being as big as it is would be a challenge.

Is the a pic of an original tractor? Maybe the stripe wasn't in the groove. If I get time over the weekend, Daniel, I'll see if I can scare up some more pics.
