Sounds like a deal to me!!

My LGT 165 is a 1976, use it for mowing 3+ acres and snow plowing, but it's getting tired.

Engine starting to smoke and use oil, time for a rebuild.

Could use a steering wheel, as I've tried to remove the one I have with no luck (want to rebuild the steering gear).

Oh, and a rear PTO and 3 point hitch, LOL!!

I'll post some pictures of it soon if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the offer.

I saw a video on youtube on steering wheel removal for the fords, looks like you need a wheel remover. yeah, I sure do love old tractors, I've got a newer craftsman that I do most of the mowing with , but so far I've replaced 1 spindel, 3 sets of blades,and I,ve got a rear axle seal leaking. JUNK!!!!!  I had on old sears suburban 12hp  that was built like a tank. sold it for 100 buck, should of kept it

You may be able to extend the life of your Kohler engine by changing the oil more frequently and adding Marvel Mystery Oil(MMO) to the gas. MMO removes carbon from the valves and piston. It reduces smoking in a few months use. Check your carb setting too. Good Luck, Rick
