I almost had to push some more snow.  Had about a 4 hour round trip to go pick this one up today.  The roads out in the country were not as cleared off yet as what is in the city.  10 inches of snow in one setting is almost too much for us to handle. But, the reward was this Ford LGT 145!  And it has cast iron wheel weights on it!

Is that the one from CL? I had my eye on that one, but it was posted "sale pending" before I had a chance to check into it. It was priced good. it was just out of the "too cheap to pass up", but still cheap enough to snag for "one more for the collection. Thinking hard about the JD 3fer for $750 with a 140H3.

 

Looks like the first half of the next round is gonna be rain. That should get rid of some of what we have now, before we get the 6 to 10

WOW that's a nice looking ford!

 

Now they are saying we are going to get over a foot of snow? it's going to hit us Sunday evening and then snow all night, then all day Monday.

So it looks like I'm going to be busy pushing more snow!

Today i finally got the greenhouse we are building cleaned off, i was wanting to get all of the snow moved so hopefully it will dry up quicker and then we can get back to work on it.
Towards then end it was getting pretty muddy (as you can see in the last picture)

JBBR, nice Ford you grabbed there! Have fun with it!

BTS, that's a nice framework for the green house. Too bad you may have to do all that again. But you're getting seat time!

I spent about 3 hours clearing all of the snow from the greenhouse and yes, i think I'm going to half to do it again.

Now they are saying there is going to be 25 to 35mph winds with gust up to 45mph. So the drifts are going to be really bad, + all of this snow is going to be on top of the other 14" that we got the other day

Well, today I got a little more prepared for the snow. I put on Turf tires with chains, the AG tires worked fine but I couldn't hardly back up because it couldn't get traction.

I also put on the 3-pt backhoe with a blade on it, I will be able to put the blade out to the side so I can blade off sidewalks and ect. The backhoe also is good weight and helps get better traction.

I guess I will see how it all works Monday!

That looks like a great set-up!  You are prepared!

I got the 145 out of my truck this afternoon.  I took the deck off of it first.  That was a chore.  The deck was hanging up on the way into the bed, I did not want the same problem taking the tractor out.

 

From the look of things, it had not been started for awhile.  The po said it was running last year, but I think it had been awhile longer.  I pulled the spark plug and shot in some fogging oil to loosen up the valves and rings. After a while I shot in some more and then turned the driveshaft by hand a few times to loosen up things.  I put a battery in it, turned on the key, and checked for voltage at the coil. Had to mess with the plug on the back of the ignition switch to get 12 volts at the coil.  I got it to turn over, but very slowly.  I let it sit awhile, then pushed it over to my truck and hooked up jumper cables, and still turned slow.  I hooked directly to the starter and that worked to get it to spin fast.  Put some gas in the spark plug hole, put the spark plug back it, turned it over, and it started and ran for a few seconds. Cool!  Put some gas in the tank, turned on the petcock (the po said he had run it dry before he stored it, and he did).  Cranked it over again, and it started again and runs fine.  No unusual noises and no smoke!

It is a little hard to shift, but it does shift.  hi-low, hydro works fine, foward and reversework too.  lift works. everything seems to work.100_9062.jpg  

 

The tire tracks are from me driving it over to a spot under my deck100_9061.jpg .

 

It needs a good powerwashing, some paint, decals, a new dash and headlights100_9064.jpg 100_9063.jpg

 

This is a awesome workhorse of a tractor.  I got lucky when I found this one!

 

After I messed around with the ford, I got the 446 back out for some more snow-pushing seat time.  I pushed back all the snow I had piled up at the back of my driveway to get ready for round two.  The weather predikters claim we will be getting another 8-12 inches of snow starting tomorrow night.  I hope they are wrong this time!

I'm glad the old ford started up so easy, looks like you lucked out with it!.

If you give it a nice wash and a wax it might look pretty decent being it doesn't look to bad now.
Have fun with it!
