Nice tractor Rock!  If it has the same brake system as the 165 you might want to check that first. Mine was dragging and the band was broke. Made a heck of a noise. I thought the rear end was going. Found the problem and bought a new band on ebay and no more noise. A three point hitch would be great to have and it looks like its all set up  for it. Looks to be a great find!

No, this brake system is nothing like the LGT 165. It has two brake drums and more links than you can shake a stick at! I freed up a stuck pivot point today. And, that gets me half way there. Parking brake pull knob does not hold. And speed control knob doesn't work yet. But, I am making progress!
This tractor has a good power steering. But, a really loose steering box!

How's your steering issues going? Making any progress?

My steering is still the same. Been kind of busy the last few weeks. But the grass is getting green and need to do some yard work soon so got to get going on fixing this steering issue!

Nice Tractor! I just picked one up yesterday with snow blade, 60" deck, back blade and 3 point hitch. I've been looking for a smaller tractor with hydraulics for quite a while and this definitely fits the bill. They don't make them like this anymore. She looks to be in good shape but I will need to change an engine gasket since she's leaking a bit. Good luck with yours I'm sure we will find many jobs for these sweet oldies!

I will try to upload some pictures soon. I got her for $1,300 with everything I mentioned. She runs good and from what the previous owner stated the owner before him changed all the hydraulic lines, gaskets and such. The hydro is very responsive. Thanks for all the good words. Here are a couple more images.
