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.

 

Good Luck

Charlie

Looks like I need the arms and the upper spring shown in the pics Delmar posted.  Im searching for part #'s now but if anyone has them, I would greatly appreciate the help finding them.

 

 

Thank you all again for the help! 

Try these folks!

Cleaned up the mower deck a little.

 

Hit it pretty good with a wire brush, lightly sanded with heavy grit then hit it with Herculiner. 

 

I work at a place that uses tons of dry film silicon mold release and I have seen how great that works.  I put a light coat on to aid in grass release from the bed liner. 

 

 

Blades come in this week!  Just need to get this throttle situation figured out so I can mow with it!

I need those exact pieces!! I have the throttle rod there, just missing the little linkage part and the spring on it.  I do have the spring that goes between the throttle and the linkage however.  I too have the pull out choke.

 

I am trying to figure out which numbers the parts are that I need from the link KennyP provided.  The drawings are a bit small. I see it all looks to be image Q. 

 

 

Thanks for the info guys!

I was just trying to give you an option for parts needed. Yes, that is hard to understand, but those were all the different options available. So when someone asks for specifics on their tractor, this is what we have to go through to help you out.

This should take you to page N which shows Figure  #24 which is Part # 235086-S. This looks like the bar you may be looking for. Further testing of this web site I that you will need to select page N which will be a larger drawing & easier to read.

Nice looking rig, looks to be in better shape than the one I brought home about a year and a half ago.  Just nearing the end of a full re-build here in the near future.  These guys on here have sure helped me out along the way.

that is not a rod, that is the throttle cable on a 1973 John Deere 140.  It uses a 14 hp kohler  motor too.

The Ford Tractors of the early 70s used about an 1/8 inch rod for the throttle connection from the lever.
