First Post but I figured I would add to the internet wiki on Ford LGT Front End Loaders.
I randomly stumbled across a non-running Ford LGT 145 on Craigslist for $300. I bought it because I thought it looked cool. I later found a complete Kwik Way Front End Loader made for a Cub Cadet Tractor. I found it sitting in someone's yard under a bunch of wood pallets.
Well 10 months later I rebuilt the tractor, modified the Kwik Way Loader, and fitted it to the Ford LGT 145.
First time working on engines, hydraulics, and even painting, I was a complete newbie. Thanks to the internet and forums like this, I was able to complete the project.
I attached some photos for future people who google "Ford LGT Front End Loader." That's what I did!
