I am new hear and wanted to introduce myself. I just bought a Ford LGT 16D. I think I got a really good deal. It's the model with power steering, looks like it has been garage kept, 1000 hrs, and so far everything works except the glow plug lamp.
The deck seems noisy when engaged but works and cuts well. U-joints seem ok, but the PTO drive shaft in general seems a little wobbly though. All this could be normal for this tractor, for all I know.
The tach reads a little high (indicated idle is around 1100, but doesn't sound that high).
Anyway, excited about it. I'll be reading through the forums to learn what I can. I plan to go through it. grease everything, change oil, oil filter, fuel filter, flush the coolant, etc. I'm guessing the hydraulic fluid is original and so are the filters. So I'll probably look into that as well. If there's anything else I should consider, a heads up is always appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
