Hello, just joined the forum so Im checkin out the corners I'll be visiting...good thing I only only three tractor brands at the moment. I seem to collect Fords but actually just got into Ford GTs this last year, I have an LGT 165 but a 14hp motor in it with no pto clutch, original motor came with it but theres a hole in the crankcase, price was right tho, and I have an LGT 100 with no spark and a spray bomb primer paint job, price was even better on that one, I bought it thinking of a parts tractor but its actually in very good condition body wise so not sure why it got bombed, I need to have at least one setup with a mower by spring so the 100 went up on blocks last weekend and I hope to get started on it shortly, I have three mower decks and one tiller so far, the plan is to put heavy attachments on the 165 and keep it looking original, and the 100 will get the mower and some custom work.

Welcome to GTT. I have three of those type GTs and love their look. You can download the tractor and engine manuals from our Manuals Section. You are allowed 3 for free per day. The Kohler manual should be a big help with your spark problem. Good Luck, Rick

Lance, I'm usually around every morning. I can get the manuals for you. I have the owner's, parts & service manual for the tractors. Plus Tiller manuals. Just give a holler.

Welcome to GTT Lance.

Nice to have you aboard.

Those Fords are good machines. I've got a LGT165 w/tiller/deck.

Nice solid ride.

Looking forward to your progress reports.

wow this is a busy place..thx guys.. Im sure its morning for most of you but I work till 2am so Im still havin an after work whiskey...lol

 

I actually already have manuals for these tractors, but thx, Im on a few differant tractor forums... big and small, so I get around a little,

 

Ive been a Ford nut all my life so a couple yrs ago I started looking specifically for an LGT 165, I just luv the look of them and I wanted the foot control hydro... had a very nice Cub but, stuck in my old ways I guess, I could not get used to the speed control lever on the dash, too many jobs, too few hands, actually drove it right into the shop wall once... and thats before the whiskey.

 

Im looking for two stage blower yet, and maybe looking for another motor, wont know till I tear down the 10hp tho, it had water in the crankcase so I decided not to even turn the starter till I look inside, it does have good compression when turned by hand tho so Im hopefull, the objective is to get these two Fords setup to cover most of the chores around here, but I can afford to take the time to do them properly, I have a very nice old Bolens RaM and a workhorse Columbia so the chores are gettin done now, and a full size International FEL when I need it.

 

neway... need to finish this drink and goto bed, my f150 is going in for a heater core flush before noon, nice yakin at ya, pretty nice forum u got goin here ;)

Oh I forgot to mention... look closely at the batt cover on the 165... I work metal fab so its a proto type steel cover Im working on and it will become available in the future;)

I blame 'Oldtimers Desease'

Thanks for joining and saying hello!  Nice herd you have started there, looks like you're going to be having a good time with them.  I like your plan of having a dedicated mower ready to go in the spring, look forward to updates there.

Welcome to GTT.  I also recently came here, from another forum, which was going down hill imo with arguments and cliques.  I hope this forum stays information-focused, and doesn't turn into a pillow party like the other places with lynch mobs, bullying, opinion wars, etc.  Just a good place to learn the facts about garden tractors and maybe make some friends in the process.
