Welcome to GTT. Check out the Manuals Section for info. You can download three manuals per day for free. Someone more familiar with your tractor will be along to help. Post a few pictures to help identify your tractor. Good Luck, Rick

We are a bit shy on manuals for the LT models. Hope someone can upload on some day!

If you have any pictures it would be helpful. It's easy to remove the deck under normal conditions. I can compare with my LT for whatever you need.

 

Once the deck is lowered to put the weight the rollers, and the latch is released, all you should have to do is  move the tractor back a couple inches, or push the deck forward.

There is only one belt for both blades on mine, if yours has three blades it would be a different deck.

 

If you need pictures or dimensions of the dozer blade, i can help with that, but you can;t have it :)

hey KennyP I just noticed you were in the Army 1968 to 1969.I was in the Army 1964 to 1968 a long time ago.Now I just relax and work on my Ford.If you could please tell me the length of the cutter blades belt and how to get the deck off it would really help.Most sites you have to pay for any manuals if they even have them.
