Hi Everyone,

 

I have been spending the last few months buying, trading, selling tractors in hopes to find my way back to the Ford LGT Series.

 

Well I have finally added a Ford LGT 165 Close Sided Tractor to my collection!

 

I am pretty pumped. It is in great condition. Haven't been able to start it, I think it needs a new starter. The tractor came with a 50" Mower deck in excellent condition.

 

Here is a pic!

I want to repaint the rear fender, and build a 3PT Hitch for it. If you have any information on 3PT Hitches, please let me know.

 

Thanks!

Nice looking lgt ya got there, I love both of mine. The starters are a bit on the pricey side. Good solid tractors. Their is some great threads on here to build a rear lift.

It won't start because it doesn't have a FEL like the other. They do have feelings! Try the manuals section for your engine and go through the troubleshooting section. Its usually something simple( the ground). If the starter is worn, you should be able to rebuild it. Good Luck, Rick

Awesome pair YOU have! Love what you did with the close sided panels.

 

Would you mind taking some pics on how the 3 PT Hitch lifts? And close ups? Were those factory ones?

 

I want to fabricate one, but am unsure how the Lift Arms, and Center Link all work together.

 

Thanks!
