Welcome to GTT. That is a beautiful GT. I'm working on an LGT 125 but I'm making slow progress. What paint did you use?

 

I noticed your name and have to ask what year. 40 years ago I was dating a girl with a purple 74 Javelin.  20 years ago I was working with a carpernter who had a white AMX. They are all pretty rare now. Glad to have you onboard. Good Luck, Rick

Well thank you very much guys for your compliments, I appreciate it this weekend the loader will be on it and arms will be blue and bucket all white, came with a factory fit Johnson 10 tc FEL, also we got the 3pnt weight bucket all on painted too looking forward to bring it home and playing with the loader, but anyway we've gone through the tractor and changed the tranny fluid, the motor was a donor from from a lgt 165 so we have a little more hp now with the k-341 and we did use a after market carb and had to mod things with the choke a bit to get to work good and threaded fuel inlet on also has a 100lbs of compression also used the hour meter, now just a matter getting the rest of the parts sprayed out and back on, I'd be currios what this would be worth when this is done? any idea's?

Don't ever ask your self that question ... As the answer would most likely bring heart ache ;-)
That is a mighty fine machine you have there for sure!! About the only thing you will want next is powersteering .
