up to and including '71 I think since the openside LGTs are '72-'76, this one here is also electric pto so the two tractors are nearly identical, mines a little worse for wear tho... lol

Thought it was 1971 to 1976 open side then 1977 to 1983 closed side. Noel

Just need to check the engine date, tractor will be about 3-4 months newer than that, im on my phone so dont have the Kohler links with me but GTT probably has copies in the manuals section.

Tractordata.com shows up to '71 for A Ford 120, 72-83 for LGT series

I got the hydro linkage freed up, carb cleaned and back together tonight.

Took it for a ride. :dancingbanana:

 

It needs some adjustment. Not enough forward speed, and too much reverse.

The engine is running good and strong. When I throw it from full reverse into

forward, it spins up the gravel, and the governor does it's job. The engine

does blow some crap out of the exhaust when I do that, but I guess that

should be expected. It got new fuel line, valve and filter. Next, I'll look at the

electric PTO.

? Am I correct here?

To adjust the hydro linkage, the rectangular metal block (that I have the square headed set screw

removed from) needs to be rotated on the shaft to the desired position?

Also, Electric PTO is working.

Haven't needed to do that as yet, Will. But it may work. Just be sure you keep neutral in the shifter slot. Maybe have neutral toward the rear of the slot? That linkage between the two blocks could be used for minute adjustments.

I couldn't get that block freed up, so I removed the whole

shift lever and bracket. I then discovered that the lever was bent

where it's flattened and welded to the shaft. Someone must have

tried to force it. Straightened it out, reinstalled, and all is good.

Will,I'm glad to see you are making good progress on your latest project. The sputtering you described earlier as Phlaterphizzzpuff, I never knew how to spell. Our folks here on the site are being very helpful which is what the site is all about. Looking forward to watching your progress.
