Normally 8 in that dog box, don't know if I can afford that many GT's. :help:   Just got a line on a FORD GT at the scrapyard. I'll find out more in a little while. Going for scrap price.

From what little information I've bfound so far I believe it to be a '69 model, still looking for further info. Have only seen pictures of 1` other with the AG tires ans 1/2 steering wheel.

I have one as well with the "yoke" style steering wheel. Currently working on getting it going. How can you date these? Also are there any manuals available for these?

I can not find a serial number on it. I have a Cavalier as decaled on the front of the hood.

 

I accuried this without a motor. I have since got a 4hp Briggs & Stratton to install. Im missing the pulley that runs the rearend.

Anybody know the diameter of the pulley? I also need the idler pulley that applies tension from foot pedal.

Looks like mine except you have rear fenders and I don't. My rear tires are AGs and yours aren't. I'm pulling my engine later today and then I'll measure some pulleys for you.

Today I mounted the 4hp Briggs. Had it all cleaned up and ready to be fired up.  Had it running for about 3 seconds, it stalled and I pulled it over 3-4 more times to restart and the motor locked up. Piston stuck in cylinder.  I am thinking a ring failed. Cylinger wall is scored badly. Currently looking for another motor.

Tearing it down. Going to pull deck next and see if engine will fire before final dis-assembly.0309130834.jpg 0309130834a.jpg 0309130834b.jpg 0309130851.jpg 0309130856.jpg 0309130856a.jpg   Have a fella coming by today to measure and draw out all the graphics/stickers for it. I think I'm going to use the "vertical" grille on it like bread's tractor has. Thoughts?

Personally, I would stay with original looking grill. But it is your tractor. 

 

I did get a running motor mounted Rugg yesterday. I found a pulley but wrong size though. Tractor speed was kind of fast and had trouble keeping the chain on.

Like I said, I haven't pulled the engine yet, but from what I can see the pulley is rather small.

Cleaned the points today with a "dime", cleaned the coil and the magnet on the flywheel. A little shot of starting fluid and she fired right up. I have the carb soaking in B-12 and going to clean tank tomorrow. The fuel pump looks serviceable. Almost finished with the dis-mantling.0309131148.jpg 0309131148a.jpg 0309131557.jpg   Doesn't look like much now.
