Recently got a lgt 145 in peices, I think it's a 73 or 74, No mower deck came with the tractor, so I am trying to adapt a deck to it. I need some good close up pic's of the front and rear mounting brackets

that are on ford mower decks, not sure how the front latch works? If you could hold a tape measure up

to them so I know have an idea of the demenions that would be great. Also how deep are the slots on the rear hooks.

thanks Rod

My deck is also unavailable for measurements. Maybe one of the other Ford guys can chime in with some help!

Mine are under 2 feet of snow too.....but do you have the framework that goes under your tractor between the deck and the tractor?....You will need that.

I believe they are the same, only minor part changes. I am working on a parts list to add into the operators manual for the 42"& 50" decks right now. This will cover the 09JC9789, 9788, 9826, 9828, 9835, & 9838 decks.

Thanks for the pic's, if any one else has pic's post them too, the more the better.

? so when you attach the front latch to the carrage bar , does the latch swing up and then snap back down into place?

Please advise..

thanks Rod

You open the latch manually it sort of goes over center and stays open, With the mower in place just pop it down and the spring holds it.

Here's a copy of the Operators manual for the 42" & 50". This is the one I am adding the parts list into. Then I will put it into the manuals section.

Attached File  ford brackets1.pdf   558.49KB   76 downloadslgt deck 3.jpg lgt deck 4.jpg lgt deck 5.jpg lgtdeck 2.jpg lgt deck1.jpg I took some pics last night  that may help you,I may wind up doing the same if I can't find spindles I need. I also cut out some cardboard cut outs of brackets,in case I need to cut some new ones. Its pdf if I can figure it out I will post it also. Brackets are 1/4 steel, 10" apart from outside measurement,front and back brackets.

This is off a LGT 125 42" mower deck.

The 26.25 measurement is my attempt to measure inside brackets curve on back to inside curve on the front,probably more accurate to measure on tractor bracket.

* the pdf of front bracket only basically shows the front,the bracket continues on where it is welded to the top of deck. 

I figured different deck the back of the bracket would need to be different anyway.

the little one is the front bracket inside piece,that flips back to attach deck ,you need two on 3/8 rod.
