Thought I would say Hello to you guys. Got a 1977 LGT 165. Came with tiller, blade, mower, and 10" plow. Had been setting for a few years, but got it running good enough to till my small garden area. Lots to be done, parts to buy, paint to squirt.

I'm happy with it. Smoked a lot, but got better as I finished up tilling Didn't get any pics tho. Here's some pics the day after I brought it home. I need the handle assy. for the blade. Probably have to build it. Mower deck is pretty well used up, lots of rust holes and rewelding. Rollers are SHOT. Oh yeah, got two link chains with it.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. Glad to be here. Lots of threads to surf thru.
Whats the deal on the thanks below my name? Probably in the FAQ, but haven't had time to peruse all that yet.

The complete lift handle, shaft, and rods are missing. The rod for the angle lock is there. I have about got it figured out, will be guessing on measurements. Thought about getting another valve and cyl. and make it that way. Ought to work, just got to figure out how much stroke for the cyl.
