I ran a wanted ad for ford and Jacobsen tractors so I can have parts for my T-800. I got a reply. It was parked because the mower deck belt broke and now lost spark he wants $300
My opinion it looks to good to make a parts tractor.

I personally would not give that much for a non runner. But prices could be different your area. There is a 53028 Model tractor, 1964-65ish, 8 HP.

I'm with Kenny. There are a few around here for sale right now @ or below that price, running, and useable. Good luck. :)

I have been in this boat myself! I always have a hard time using them as "parts tractors" lol. :rolling:

 

$300 seems a little high IMO.

 

When you check it out. Check the condition of the brake band (they tend to rust and break), and see if it has the trans pulley brake still on the brake rod (missing in a lot of cases and the pulley needs to stop in order to shift). Also make sure there is no play in the rear axle bushings (lift up on the rear seeing if the axle has up and down play).

 

The no spark is probably a rusty connection on the ignition switch or the points are dirty.

 

After checking it out I would offer $200 and then go from there.

 

Good Luck! :thumbs:

The axle play is the problem on my T-800. I am hoping to rebuild it some time soon. I payed 400 bucks for a hydro lift so I am not that smart lol. I will try to negotiate

I am not sure what the bracket is for?? I have the same bracket on a parts machine I bought, that also has a deck on it. I haven't had time to really check it out yet.

What models are there for the ford lgt ? I just recently picked up a nice ford think it's a lgt but doesn't have the side panels. Had 60 in deck 3 point hitch and power steering and front hydo hook ups. Runs great. Just not sure what size it is or what it's worth ??

Welcome to the forum! With the power steering, that sounds like an LGT195, as it was the only one with that. Get us some pics of the beast and we'll figure it out. Help posting the pics can be found in my signature.
