Howdy everyone.

 

I just acquired this old Ford 100 lawn tractor yesterday. I didn't know what model it was until I did a bunch of Googling today and learned that it's a 100. Based on the serial number tag, I believe it's a 1960. I'll have to look up the serial number to confirm that.

 

The guy I got it from said it ran about 10 years ago, but has been parked since. I'm sure I can make it run again. It's missing a few bits and pieces - most notably, the hood. And the mower deck.

 

I'm looking forward to cleaning it up and getting it running again! It looks hell for stout, for a small machine.

 

Glad to be here.

:wave: Welcome to the forum. Where did you find a serial number cross to year at? We have been looking for o that for years. It looks more of mid '60's to me.

I got an extra hood if you need! By the way it looks like a 1967 or a 1968

Hi welcome to gtt nice tractor you got there.  Check your numbers on this page http://gardentractor...-model-numbers/  i think you will find you have a 67/68.  Nice thing about these old Fords they are still cheap, tough and pretty common for parts, good luck

Hey, thanks for all the warm welcomes! :thumbs:

 

The reason I guessed it was a 1960 is because the serial number tag shows a serial number in the left corner of the tag (which I haven't been able to read yet), and then in the right corner, it is stamped "1960". I guess maybe that 1960 is part of the serial number or something. I was just guessing maybe it indicated the year.

 

I haven't done any real research on it yet, other than finding out that it's a Ford 100 - and I found that out just by Googling "Ford lawn tractor" until I found a picture of a machine that looked the same as mine.

 

I'm a Ford guy anyhow, so I was glad to get this, and it sure looks like a well-built little beastie.

I found the manuals yesterday and already downloaded them! :D

 

Is there a wiring diagram available?

 

I'll add some more pics tomorrow.

BTW -

 

Though y'all would enjoy knowing how I acquired this machine.

 

But you'll prolly hate me fer it.

 

The guy paid me to haul it away for him.

 

I also took out of his old barn:

 

- John Deere lawn tractor, probably 1970s-early 1980s, about the same size, maybe slightly larger, than the Ford 100

- Troy-Bilt rear-tine tiller

- Craftsman tiller

- Crafstman chipper/shredder

- Dumping utility cart to tow behind the tractor

- Some miscellaneous other stuff

 

...all of which he paid me to haul away, to get rid of it.

 

I haven't taken a good look at any of the other stuff, since the Ford intrigued me so much, but he said it all would run. I'll take a closer look at the Deere tomorrow.
