Just wanted to introduce my self and say hello
I'm starting a restoration on a LGT 145. My grandfather bought new in the 70's. Best thing about it is she's complete and i got both the mower decks that he bought. She was running when they parked her in the early 90's. Any info you can give me from the pictures would be greatly appreciated. I can't read the silver tag so I'm hoping to locate a vin number when I start disassembly next week. I know she rough but I've built cars in worse shape. Lol, this is my 1st tractor.

Welcome to GTtalk.  The good thing is the tractor is complete. Does the engine turn over?  We have several folks quite knowledgeable about the fords.

Welcome aboard !! That's a nice machine ! I see it has the top brackets and rocker shaft for a 3 point hitch? Hopefully your grand pappy has the lower stuff too?
That silver tag is your only key to identifying it!! Look really carefully as the tag was Handwritten in , and is made of a very soft metal so be careful!!!

Welcome to the forum! I'm with Keith, Hope you find the rest of the 3-point.

From what I see on the tag in the 5th pic, that's the 09JC3310, LGT145. Rest of it is hard to read. Gonna be a cool tractor!

Welcome to GTTalk. Those Fords are an excellent tractor. If you can't figure the year from the tractor tag the Kohler engine ser. no. should narrow it down for you.

Hello  :wave: and welcome to GTtalk!  Glad u found this site!  Great bunch of old garden tractor folks here! 

That is a great gardentractor u have there.  Thanks for posting the photos.

  An open-side Ford LGT 145 is a workhorse !  She will be a great asset for you when u get her running again.

Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to getting her home this weekend. 1st I'm going to see if I can get her running then tear her apart. Ill have to look around for those other parts. Pawpaw passed away 2000. My uncle said he know I used to ride on it when I was little and he would like me to have it. Anyway, is their someone who could send me a photo of what I'm looking for on the 3 point hitch?
Thanks again
Mark

Here is mine when I pulled it out of the weeds.  This pic shows the two back bars.  it does not show the cross bar or 3rd link.  Disregard the white bar.  Is a homemade sprayer attachment.

Where is that tag located on the frame?  My Kohler tag is basically trashed.  And I cannot find anywhere a FORD tag was located? Would be cool to know the year of mine as well.

Thanks

Conrad
