Here's a few pics of the LGT165.  The ones of the blade are not real great because of the shadows, the rest of them are ok.  The tractor sheet metal is exactly how it was when I bought it 5 years ago.  I believe it's all original. I keep it outside with an atv cover over it.  The pics  show the tractor, M16 motor,blade, hitch, hydro filter, deck, etc. Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! (I hope it was ok to put them in a new thread - still learning.)

That is a great looking Ford! You have done a fine job with it! I'm not a purist, so can understand the changes you have made. Awesome looking tractor & attachments!

That's a really nice Ford you have there. Can't imagine anyone who woudn't be glad to have that one. (Except maybe a Chevy person!)

Very nice tractor. About the nicest original 165 I've seen. Thanks for posting.

Thanks everyone!  I bought the tractor to use - a lot. Most of the brackets, hitch and other stuff I built with what I had around the house.  If I had the time and money I'd love to restore one to original condition.... maybe someday. For now I just look at everyone's pictures on the forum and dream!

That's a nice one ya got their .. the plastic dash and lift panel look like new. Keep an eye on the rubber seat pan mounts so they don't compress an crack the lift panel. Both mine have suffered from that. She's a keeper I love both of mine and get alot of work out of them  ...... If chevy made a GT I'd own a few of them also....LOL   :thumbs:

Somewhere's about the forum, I have a drawing for the sleeve hitch. Not sure if I have one for the lift bar, but I'll look!

I like your sleeve hitch! I think it's better than factory. How's it work for you? I've Mickey moused a hitch to work on mine but, it doesn't have quite an enough lift. Yours is a little longer. So, it lifts higher?

Thanks!  It works great, I mow about an acre several times a season and plow the driveway in the winter.  It easily pushes a couple feet of snow as long as there's a place to put it.  I also use it to back the boat into my brother's shop to store it for the winter.  Once I even pulled my son's huge Dodge 2500 diesel up the driveway when it crapped out. The driveway is about 80' long, uphill and loose gravel. Just put the wheel weights and chains on! The lift works great, It has about 6" of travel on the plow and a bit more on the hitch since I drilled a few different mounting holes on the lift bar (I think that's what you call it).
