Your 100 is a prior 1971 series for the belt number 86514574 unless you are looking for the timing belt for the blades?

Nope. I'm looking for the drive belt from the clutch to the deck. Do you have the part number for the timed belt?

I have found 2 different belts for a 36" deck. 1 is 1/2 X 59", other is 1/2 X 69". I have a CD on order that has a bunch of the older manuals on it, but I haven't gotten it yet. As soon as I get it, the files will be uploaded.

That is a really nice Ford! It's cool that it has stayed with the family for so long. As far as the popping at speed goes, I think you're on the right track with cleaning the carb. I had a Jacobsen Chief 1000 that did the same thing and it ended up being a dirty carb. Mine did not have a fuel filter on it when I got it, and I ran it out of fuel and after that it didn't run right until I cleaned the carb and put a filter on it.

The carb was brand a few years ago. Then it went back into storage. I know the inside of the tank is only fair. I'll pick at it over the winter.

Thanks for the belt info Kenny.

Finally got my hands on the younger brother for my 100. It took a while to get and I don't have it home yet. It's going to visit my sister and her family for the winter or until I get it home. It's a 145 with a bagger, blade and deck. It also has low hours and works well. I can't remeber how to post the pics on here though.

Oo-v-oO moved it for me. Very painless. He was awesome to deal with. Anyhow...the pics. My nephew in the middle is fascinated with tractors. I might not get it back!! More pics to follow later.

Congratulations. That's about the nicest looking open sided Ford I've seen locally. Many of them are really in sad shape. You are making some really nice finds over there on the island. My JD314 has the original dealer tag on it. It was bought at the JD dealer in Summerside.

Actually Brian I bought it on Craigslist Vermont and I don't have it home yet. The only really decent one I have seen over here was owned a hot rodder named Brian MacArthur. He bought it new, kept it inside and waxed it after every use. He sold it for $375 in less than 2 hours. I almost cried. This one has the rear PTO and just over 200 hours on it. I can't wait to get it home. I'm going to be picking up the rear 3 point hitch tuff and I have a Jac tiller for it already. It was nice to have nother member help out.

That is a great looking Ford. There is only one thing I don't like. The points are hidden behind the rear PTO shaft. A major PITA to get to them with that in the way! On my LGT165, the shaft is nearly rubbing the cover.

I never thought of the points cover. That will be a pain. Funny, now that I think about it, In all the time that the old 100 was in use since we got in 1972, the tractor has never been serviced by anyone but my father or myself. I asked him earlier tonite, the points cover has never been off. We have never touched the points in it. It just had regular oil and air filter changes in the spring and fall. Lots of grease during every use.
