This LGT 165 has been up on Kijiji a couple times.

I finally got tired of seeing it, and gave him a call

Went out this morning and loaded it up.

250.00 little high, but oh well. Fords around here are hard to find.

Engine is missing, as well as tank and PTO clutch.

Hydro trans, 3 pt hitch, and rear pto, sheet metal is all there and straight, headlights are intact.
Tires are good and has crappy weight box on the back.

Question is what do I do with it.

I have a running LGT 100 that is really ugly, or I can try and fit a Princess Auto 10 diesel.

Decisions decisions.

That's a good looking tractor. Diesel would be good.

Well then there's this other thing I had in my head.

I bought the LGT100 for parts to build a dozer. It came with a tiller and a deck Its ugly as heck, and the rubber and steering are shot, but it runs and everything works.

And I can get 13 hp Honda clone for a couple hundred when it comes on sale again at princess auto, and keep all my toys on the same fuel.

But the diesel would be cool.

Hmmm What to do, What to do.

This is the LGT100. I traded the deck to a local member for a snow blade and a pair of tires on rims.

My biggest question right now, is 10hp enough for a hydro setup?

IMO,it isn't really enough. I had a Cub Cadet hydro with a 10 horse Kohler,and it was pretty gutless.

Yeah, I'm afraid so, but around here old garden tractor stuff is hard to find, especially old fords.

Its worth it to me just for the hydro and sheet metal.

I was wondering. I can get 15 hp Honda clones locally for 375, and they come up on sale occasionally.

It wouldn't have the oomph of a cast iron motor, but its a start. or I might have to talk my buddy out of his 20 horse Honda v-twin

JCLooking at the Kijiji ad, where the gas tank mounts, it looks like a 165 frame.

 

What is the model number? 09JC3336?

After giving that pic a second look, you may be right! Better count the head bolts!

That would make it an LGT 145. If it weren't so far, I have a set of side covers to fit it.

You need more than 10 HP diesel for that rig to work efficiently. I have one with a 16.5 HP Kubota diesel in it and it works hard at tilling and blowing snow!!
My pick would be a 18+ HP v-twin kohler , as its almost a direct bolt in if you have the engine mount brackets from the original engine. All you need to do is drill 2 holes and grind a little notch for the starter.
Also need to change ign. Switch to switched ground for engine kill. Very easy swap.
