Hi, thought I would take a moment to say hello. I recently came across an lgt 145 which I bought for $400.00. I was interested in it because it included a front blade and a mower deck, all with hydraulic lift. I had a bolens 800 rust bucket, manual lift front blade and I was just looking for something that would be easier to work with.

Since I purchased it,I have found out that it's an early 1977 model, one of the first closed side 145s. It's in amazing shape, all original. It's not without it's problems, the charging system wasn't working, easily fixed with a new fuse link. It also has a hydraulic leak, not sure if it's the cylinder or a hose, but will deal with whatever it is. My main concern is that it has an inline hydraulic filter. I was wondering if anyone has converted to a spin on, and if so how? I figure I can change to rubber hoses instead of the existing hydraulic lines, but mounting location concerns me. I would love to see how any of you have done this conversion. I do have pictures and will post them as soon as I'm able to here.

Thanks
Todd

:wave: Welcome to the forum! That's something I have wanted to do, but I put a new inline on not long ago. This thread has a pic of one in the first post!

Welcome to GTT. I did a conversion to a spin on filter on a LGT 145 but it is an open sided from 1975. This should be close to the same as the Closed Side newer LGT.

Goes through how I did mine.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and the help! I'm sure I can do a cost effective conversion with the leads posted here! And now my pictures, this is exactly how I bought this machine, I haven't had time to clean it yet!0119151054-00.jpg Resize_0119151055-00_01.jpg Resize_0119151054-01_01.jpg

From what I just read in another thread, there are several sets of the screw-on filters on Ebay.

Another question I had is what type of hydraulic oil do you guys run in your Lgts? I was thinking about universal hydraulic/transmission, or transhydraulic. I don't have a New Holland dealer anywhere near by.

That's what I have been using.
