No idea on the cylinder, but I'd love to have that Case in the pic! Nice looking Ford there!

I have 3 LGTs right now.....100 manual and 2 125s with Hydro....None have the hydraulic lift. I had a 145 with lift last year, but sold it......All 145s and 165s have the lift, shouldnt be too hard to find a cylinder. Ask on the Yahoo group.......might find one there....

Ya, I called him and talked about it. It is a nice case to. Maybe Ill see it if I pick it up. Though I think he is dropping it off. I think we all would like to have the case.
Posted Image here is the case, for some reason, he put the picture in the ad.

Ill have to join that group now wont I? lol

Ya maynard, it looks like it was restored at one time. And he said it runs great and drives great I will have to call him about the 3pt ears on the trans.

I think the Ford LGT looks to be in good shape. I don't think it would take much to find the lift cylinder that you need.

Not quite sure what you are asking, but the deck height on the ground adjusts by the lever on the deck......that raises and lowers the wheels at the back of the deck. . As for the lift, mine, not having a hydraulic cylinder has a series of holes that a pin on the lift handle fits into. If you look in the slot where the handle would fit on the 145, you can see those holes. You could find a lift handle from a manual lift model and bolt it on the 145..........

The Ford looks to be in pretty decent shape. I'd have to try to get the Case also. Both of them are neat tractors.

It is, my buddy Hugh waanted me to try to get it. lol I thought I shouldnt but left a message. Turns out I dont think he got the message. I should prolly be happy about that since he is dropping it off.

Well, I made a rookie mistake. I told the guy all the good things about the ford. And I think he decided he didnt want to sell it anymore. So No ford.

You gotta learn somewhere. You always lead the seller to believe they are selling the worst thing ever LOL.
