One thing I see that is different on a Fords then the one pictured is the connection to the throttle lever. On a Ford it is a thicker rod like this.
If you are missing this rod I may have a spare one. What type of choke linkage is this tractor using, one that pulls out to apply the choke or a knob that is turned to apply the choke. On my 1975 LGT 145 it looks like the choke was changed to the pull out type. The operators manual has a special note attach for operation of the pull out choke.
