That deck is for the pre-'72 generation. It hooks up a bit different then the later units. Its the same as the Jake Chiefs.

Thanks, Keith! I'm too old to stand on my head to see pics.
If it is a pre- '72, then this (?) is the tractor manual. But it doesn't show the deck lift. Now to find the mower deck manual.

The part I am looking for is a hook that goes into a slot on the lift arm for the mower deck or snow plow, it then has a loop at the bottom which goes over a stub on the mower frame and is kept in place with a large pin. I think I may be able to cobble one up with hardware from Tractor Supply, but i will keep looking. There is a good picture of in figure 25 in the 42 mower manual.



thanks

Hi Guys, Now I have my LGT 100 42 inch mower mounted but the PTO does not seem to engage, It is a manual pto and when i move it into the forward (on) position it slows the engine down a little but does not turn the belts to the mower. I check the belts an they appear to installed correctly, Any help is appreciated as always, drawings/manuals/ instructions etc.

THANKS
RODHOLDERDEPOT

Look on page 14 of this manual. If this is your PTO clutch, I think I can find how to adjust it.

Edit: If that is the PTO clutch, this manual shows how to adjust it. Page 20 (22 in the adobe reader)

Thanks, I see the PTO but I don't see the way to adjust it. When I start the tractor I can see the PTO shaft spinning but nothing happens when I engage it.

Ok, it was a three day cage match but i emerged victorious thanks to your help. The mower is now mounted and working. The last issue appeared to be the PTO clutch was in need of adjustment. I tinkered with it and eventually got it right.

thanks,

At least you don't have to worry about the deck rusting! Glad you got it all figured out.

The tractor is a Ford 100, 10hp, from the late 60's. They also made a Ford 80, 8hp, and 120, 12hp. Made by Jacobsen and same as the Jacobsen Chiefs. The LGT models came after these and are tube frame tractors. Just a little info so you know when looking for parts or help.

Here is a link about the Jacobsen gauge used to adjust the manual PTO.

http://gardentractor...o-clutch-gauge/

If the PTO clutch wants to keep turning when disengaged, take it apart and clean the clutch disc and both pulley surfaces. I had that problem on a Ford 120. Lot's of grease and dirt build up on the clutch plates.

Nice looking tractor, consider that it's over 40 years old.
