Hi just joined the forum have an old Ford GT got it last year.  Works pretty well use it year round.  I put up a gallery with a few pics.   Here's one of my rig. fordsled002_zps22ac13bb.jpg

I was on another forum but got tired of the b.s. there.  Just like talking about old garden tractors and  no ego trips.  Thanks for the space looks like a good place.

OldFord, :welcometogttalk:

Nice looking Ford you have, other than the blade, what attachments do you have with it?

Neat sled too. Never had much interest in them, but I love mechanical things in general.



BTW, we don't have many ego trips around here, and they are short trips anyways :D
Now, if you are asking about trips to the funny farm... Those can get pretty loooooooong.

Oldford, did you or a previous owner (PO) give it a paint job? Looks pretty nice.

Welcome to GTT. Nice old tractor. It looks like it pulls its weight. Relax and enjoy the site. Notice we have a manuals section for you to download what you need. Three free per day. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to GTT Oldford. No egos here just a bunch of folks that love tractors & are more than willing to help. That's a good looking rig.

Hi current implements are an aluminum deck and a rear hitch connects to the lift handle makes a good lift assist added a counterweight.  It came off an LGT-series Jacobsen i made some angle brackets for the rear end.  Put some gallery pics here http://gardentractor.../50409-oldford/  Only other implement is the front blade actually from a Sears I built a quick hitch hooks to the blower mount.  Don't have a snowblower tho.  Posted the sled pic to show what it mostly does just moves trailers around the yard nothing fancy.  Looking to get a tiller and garden plow they are expensive.  Thanks for the manuals I will check them out.  Guy before me painted it green i added the blue/white till i ran out of paint.  thanks again

:wave:  Welcome! I can help some with the manuals. Have to look thru my 'stash' for them.

That is a good looking tractor. I know I have a manual on the deck. Should have one for the tractor too.

The deck manual is in the 'Manuals' section.

I think this is the tractor manual:
