Hello, It's my first time in a forum. I looked through several and this seemed to have the most to offer.
I've recently been given a Ford Lgt 120 from my grandfather,he didn't want it to go to tha bad. It's in very good shape & I thought I'd get it going again & take it to the thresher's reunion in the years to come! I'm having trouble finding parts like fuel tank,blue Ford seat,grille,lights,dip stick and so on. I can't find much locally. Mostly cosmetics are needed but it is in very good shape. I'm thinking early 70's but not sure haven't been able to run #'s yet. I love it though because where it came from,where it's going (my son) & I've been a Ford fan all my life! So any help will be greatly appreciated & if I see where I can help out I will!! So to start things off right, Thanks, and have a good day! :)

Welcome to the forum!!  Glad you joined us.  It is great to have a tractor or piece of equipment that has a family history.  We have some guys with great Ford knowlege who will be more than happy to help and check out our sponsors for parts when you get a chance.  Pictures too, we love pics.

Welcome to the forum. That is a very nice tractor you have there. There is a large Ford following here who should be able to answer specific questions. You can also check the manuals section for info on your tractor. We have a classified section where you could ask for parts and several of our site sponsors should be able to help with parts as well.

Welcome! Glad to have another Ford owner in the forum! First off would be seeing a pic of the tractor so we can verify what it is for sure. Or if you happen to have a model # (besides Ford 120). Pics can be a pain the first time through, just look at the bottom of my signature for a video on doing them. The model # will be on a plate and read something like 530** or 09JC32**. Does it have an electric PTO? Is it gear drive or hydro? This can help us a lot to help you. Even the #'s off the engine can help pin down what year it could be.

Welcome to GTT. Check out our photo galleries and the manuals section. You can download manuals here for free. If you post pictures here we can help you identifiy what you have(and we love pics!). See KennyP above for pic posting help. I would advise you to collect all the pics, literature, and family stories of the tractor. It is a family heirloom and should be restored and documented. I would sit down with your grandfather and a video camera and record his memories of the tractor. Do the same with your dad. While you're at it get what ever other stories they want to tell.

 

I've got an openside LGT125 in my garage right now getting fixed. They are beautiful when restored.

 

There are a bunch of LGT openside parts on EBAY right now. Which type is yours?

Thanks to everyone for the very nice welcome. I'll be sure to post pics I've got 1 up now as a profile pic but as I go along there will be more. Mod,ser &engine #s will be on here later today. My gpaw said that other than reg maintenance stuff its all original.gonna blast all sheet metal and powder coat & replace decals. My son 12yrs already claimed it lol. But thanks again for the welcome. I can see you guys will be very helpful and encouraging so I'll do my best to do tha same. Everyone have a good 1/31/13 !!:)

That's the 72-76, 09JC3220. We have good manual coverage for it. A Blue seat will be hard to find and probably $$$$ when you do. Other pieces needed can be found through our sponsors or a wanted ad in the classifieds. It looks pretty good as far as I can tell from the pic!

The picture does look like it is in very good condition. You may want to take your time before you strip it down. Just clean, repair, and maintain what you have. Many of us put great value on good condition original paint.
