I got this LGT 100 which has a blown motor. I also have a Jacobsen GT16 which is a parts machine with a good 16hp motor

 

Just curious before I pull out the tools and get dirty, will the 16hp Kohler from the Jacobsen GT16 fit on the oil pan of the Fords LGT 100 10hp Kohler?

 

I will also need a fuel tank as neither tractor has one.

I am not sure if the 16 hp block will fit the 10hp pan......Why not just use the 100 for parts to fix up the GT16?

The Jacobsen is missing parts that are not shared with the Ford.

I also prefer the Ford over the Jacobsen.

Yes the pan will bolt up if they are both Narrow base blocks.Make sure that you measure the oil dipper on the bottom of the connecting rod on both engines.They should be the same length but I would measure both just to be sure.You don't want to accidentally put a long dipper into a shallow well oil sump.

 

All of the differences between a 10 and 16hp block are from the jug up and the crank.

 

I used a bearing plate,flywheel with ring gear and ssi module off of a blown 16hp kohler magnum on my neighbors cub cadet 109.Converted it from starter genny to ring gear start and solid state ignition with stator charging system.

 Bolt right on if as stated earlier, they are both narrow blocks. Is the Jake an old style like the Ford (72-76 model) if so it will bolt right on.

 

 The standard shift frames are different from the hydro frames but all the sheet metal is basically the same . Only where a deck lift handle goes is the differences.

Yes I believe the Jacobsen is from the same time frame.

Keith,
What's that third picture? Is that your tractor?

I see a hydro cylinder for the rear lift, extra Hydro lines and is that a belt driven pto? Just a standard jake 90 degree gearbox and a long belt to the front mule drive? Was there a thread on this?

Thanks!

Joe

There really isn't any on those as they required some serious monkeying to get correct.
The rear pto is completely revamped and has a jackshaft and sub frame that are reqired to get the speed correct and belts to work.
The tractor that is mounted on has a diesel with aux. Hydraulics.
