I agree. I have three of these open side LGTs, two LTs, a 1971 4500 , a 73 2000, and a dozen attachments. They have great style. I hope to paint them all and line them up for a pic some day. Good Luck, Rick

I'd love to see all of them paint or no paint

Awesome score! Way to go! A Little cleaning and that tractor will look good. Hope you get the issues with the lift figured out soon!

Glad to hear you didn't use your brain.  You miss the good deals when you do!  That is one nice tractor.

Ergo, why you were saying the other day that people over 100 are old?

 

You just had to say that, didn't you?

I've been eating my salads lately, and been having

regular bowel movements. I was feeling pretty good about things.

Now I feel old. :shoot2:

I took some pictures of the ones that are near the house and the 125 buried in the garage. The 120 is covered but outside. The 2 LTs are 200m back in the woods. The engine from the side is the one out of the 120, it has low hours but its alternater screws won't give. I've been PBing them for months. The engine from the bottom is the one from the 125(in the garage) that threw a rod. The block is okay so I hope to grind the crank when I can set up my lathe. The 2000 with FEL runs fine. The 4500 is down for a leaking hydraulic hose in the backhoe. I have a special flarenut wrench for doing the hoses but I can't find it. As you can see, I'll need several gallons of Ford Blue to paint everything. SD530568.JPG SD530567.JPG SD530566.JPG SD530565.JPG SD530564.JPG SD530563.JPG SD530562.JPG Enjoy. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks, I suspect the valve but we shall see. BTW I did a separate thread on the grader with a bunch of pictures. I'm finally learning to post pictures without it taking too long. The last picture above shows a bumper on the LGT145, is it factory?  Good Luck, Rick
