Got the old Ford out today. Pretty much been in storage since 1993. MY father bought it in 1972. Used it every week until 93. I put a carb on it in 2006 and it has been covered up in my shop since then until today. Does anyone have a part number for belt that drives the mower for this type? It is a 36 inch Jac deck. It was a real treat to hear that little 241 running again.

Somebody will be able to help. Me I don't know squid about that unit except I really like the look of it. Welcome to the site and keep us posted. I think any tractor with family history is special, but that one just sparks my fancy.

That sure is in great shape. I'm glad you were able to dig it out and share a couple of photographs with us. Thanks.

That's a nice 100. About the nicest one I've seen if that is original paint!

Looks even better when the photos are enlarged. Your family really took good care of that tractor.
Thanks for the photos.

Welcome to the forum! Nice 100 you have there. You say this is a 1972 year , so the mower drive belt (motor to deck) should be a 1/2" x 59" belt according to New Holland. Their part # is 86518882. This was found using 09JC9732 (59732) for the mower deck model #.
Prior to 1971, the belt would have been a 1/2" x 68", # 86514574

Thanks for all the positive comments. According to the numbers it is a '69. Thanks for the belt numbers Kenny. I started to drive this when I was 6, and I spent a lot of hours on the seat next to my father as well. To my knowlege it's mostly original paint. The Mower deck and the 2 lower side panels are the only parts that were repainted. I also have all the original shields and covers for the deck and battery on a shelf. It has always been washed, waxed and garaged when not in use. There's a good healthy coating of grease on the front wheel inners and the front axle. It's kept the paint nice there. Looking forward to cleaning it up some over the winter.

You folks have done a great job keeping it looking great for a '69 model. As far as manuals, use the ones for a Jacobsen Chief. It's the same thing, just Blue!

I appreciate all the nice comments. I still have a bit of carb work to do as it isn't running perfect at WOT. Starts and Idles great and throttles up fine just a little pop every once in a while at speed. Carb could probably use a good cleaning. It's been sitting for 6 years. Now I'm working on aquiring a LGT 145 stable mate. Comes with a deck, Factory option power bagger and a dozer blade. Only 202 hours since new. It's not cheap but since I already have a Jac tiller for it I'm gonna go for it. More to follow tomorrow on that one.

Does the LGT 145 have the rear PTO shaft on it? Or is your tiller belt driven?

The 145 has a shaft on it already. It's in pretty good original condition. I also have access to an original 3 point hitch for it here if I want it. I'm going to look further into that as well.

Sounds like a good tractor to get, with having the 3-Point to put on it. Glad the rear PTO is there.
