Greetings to all. I'm new here on GTT and have been looking around and found lots of good info. I was raised an Allis Chalmers person but bought my Ford about 20 years ago when my wifes boss wanted to get rid of it during a divorce. It was a total mess when I got it and I spent a year rebuilding everything except the hydrostatic. Since then it has mowed 1.5 acres of lawn every week and is on it's 3rd engine overhaul. My Allis Big-Ten does the snow blowing and tiller duties but the Ford is much faster and nimble for mowing and has been rock solid over the years. My Fords Model # is 09JC3281 and the serial is T16296 if anyone might know what year it is. The mower deck is 42". Also I am getting it ready for another mowing season and I am in need of a blade adapter. The number I think I need is JAC336172. It has the 6205 bearings in it. I find where there is a Homelite adapter number JA336172 available but don't know if it is the same. Any suggestions on where I might try to get one would be great. Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any advice.

Chuck

Welcome to GTtalk Chuck.  Glad you decided to join us.  I'll give you a heads up off the bat, the guys are going to want pictures.  I can't help you with your adaptor question but we have several ford guys and maybe one of our sponsors can help.

Bill - Thanks for the welcome. My old tractors aren't very photogenic. Compared to what other pictures I see on here mine will look like escapees from a land fill. I'll see what I can do. Thanks again.

Welcome to GTT. Don't worry about the appearance. Most of the GTs here are not trailer queens. What is important is that we enjoy them. Pics may help identify what you need. We have a bunch of sponsors that offer parts, check them out. If you need manuals check our Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

Well here are some pictures of my motley crew. This is the first time in 15 years the Ford has had a side cover put on. It always seemed to run better without the engine covers. Also threw in a couple pics of my brand-x toys. First time uploading pics here so no idea whats gonna happen.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Good looking herd you have there! If you have the engine serial, we can get you close on the year. Not sure on the blade adaptor. Might ask the site sponsors if they have one.

Many thanks to all the welcomers. As for the Land Rover in the picture it is my main project at this point. I found this one in a barn about a year ago and if you like tinkering get an old Land Rover. Always something to fix or rebuild. As for the serial number on the Fords Kohler I'll have to look at it tomorrow. I know it's a K301 but don't have the serial in my notes. Thanks again for the warm welcome.

 Welcome Chuck , your rig is an LGT 125 as it has a Hydro the 120 is a gear drive unit.

 I might be able to help out with that part. I have a few spares ,you need to measure the bore very accurately though as most are metric but a few had 1.001 bores with heavy duty spindles and bearings. So an accurate measure is in order. :smilewink:

Keith - Thank you for the reply. As for the dimensions the shaft OD is .9828" and the ID of the adapter is .9898". The ID bore of the adapter is about 1.010" in depth. I don't seem well equiped to measure ID measurements between 1/2" and 1" but these measurements are real close. It does use 6205 metric bearings. I'm sure there is some wear in the parts but not enough to confuse matters. Let me know if you need to know any other dimensions. As for the serial number of the engine that KennyP asked for I found the number 47606D on the sticker but it seems to be across from the word Spec. instead of Serial Number. There is nothing beside the words Serial Number. Also the Engine model is actually K301 (AOS). Many thanks for the help everyone.
