My next project is up on blocks, I spent a few months last spring looking for an open sided LGT, ended up with two tractors but not sure yet if the 100 can be rebuilt or if its gonna be a parts machine for the 165, first step is to tear it down so thats gonna start now, either way I need a Ford mowing the grass by spring.

Doesnt look much differant now but its working well, found a deck for it, put on a steel battery cover, four tires and differant seat,  exhaust isnt finished but its functional. Mowing with it a few weeks now... not bad for a motor half full of water when I picked it up;)

Glad you got her going. How's the cut on those Ford decks?

Oh, and did you already post info on that exhaust? If not, could you? Looks intriguing.

The Ford decks typically hang so IMO that doesnt result in a really nice cut, so I lowered the front scalp rollers level with the rear wheels at cutting height... that makes it follow the ground better and it does quite a nice cut now... I have 3 50" decks so Im gonna build one of those with adjustable front swivel casters to make a true ground following deck.

 

The exhaust is just pieced together from the automotive section at Canadian Tire, still needs a muffler tucked up inside the rear wheel but its already alot quieter than the original burnt out muffler up front, I often spend 3-4 hrs on a mower and the noise drives me nuts so Im trying to get it away from the front of the tractor. I have about $80 invested into the 9 pieces on it so far, it barks like crazy if you stand behind the tractor but in the seat its not bad, although I still want a muffler as well.
