Picking this up in the morning.....LGT125.....The owner says 60" deck, but I am sure they are 50", (60 overall)....If you look close at the pick, you can see the PTO shaft.....am hoping for hydraulic lift too, but not holding my breath on a 125. This will make Ford LGT #3......Might restore this one

I think I see a lift handle peaking out just barely above the hood, so probly no hydro lift.

The PTO is a nice find though.

Yeah....saw that too........Hoping the engine is good in it, my other 125 runs well, but she's a smoker. I should rebuild it, but if I can find a non smoker, will be happy.

I know where my Uncle's Ford LGT100 is sitting, & it's been there for several years. I wish it looked as good as yours Poncho, but it's solid rust in color. His son now has it & it will never get restored, or even rolling unless someone saves it from certain fate. I plan on speaking with my cousin about it & see if I can drag it home for a future project. When I say it's rough....I mean really rough! But no rust through as I saw.

Daniel, If you say it is rough it must be in sad shape! Poncho, nice find on your 3rd Ford! Hope she is a good runner for you.

Nice find on your new tractor. Like you said hopefully it's not a smoker. I know you will keep us updated and provide more pictures. Enjoy your new addition.

Most times when an engine has sat for a long time, it WILL likely smoke when finally cranked up. Many times though, I find that once started & ran for a while, the smoke will subside. Mostly due to gummed up/stuck piston rings and running loosens things up. Adding Seafoam engine oil treatment will help de-gum the rings & help free tight valves.

I got another 125 this past spring....It had been sitting outside for at least 5-7 years according to the previous owners son......Everything was seized up on it, including the carb throttle shaft. I got it all loosened up and running.......ran it quite a bit this summer and its still smoking bad.

This one I found today, the owner says he has never had running. It is sitting inside, but by the looks of it, it has been left out a bit too.....We shall see when I get it home....

I also have an LGT100........I picked it up 2 years ago for a song....came with tiller and front blade....hardly any rust on it and uses no oil at all......

Got it home yesterday. It is not in as good a shape as I had hoped, but the other 125 I have was worse when I got it, nothing I cant deal with. Some parts are missing, foot pedals etc. The lady didn't know if they were around, but will keep an eye out for them. The thing must have had a tiller on it, the lift bar and rear top mount are still on it, as is the PTO ......no sign of a tiller where I bought it though.

Tore into it this morning. All the body work was basically just sitting on it, took about 5 min to get all that off. Messed with the points etc and got spark. The carb is really munged up, have it soaking and will see if I can get a kit and float on Monday. Gas tank is pretty cruddy to. Oil is black as coal, but it was to the full mark. Electrical all seems to work, starter, electric clutch, amp gauge etc. I may try and fire it up tomorrow with a carb off one of my other Fords. Would like to see if this engine is worth putting money into, or if its just going to be for parts.

I forgot to shoot some pics today.....me bad.
