Yesterday I brought up the remnants of a Ford LGT 165 I have sitting out back. I hope to use the Hydro on a project that is in the works, so I needed to get it torn apart. I plan to use the foot pedal for travel so that will stay with it. I had already taken some things off, now it is getting into the rest of it.
First off was the deck lift mechanism. May be able to use some of these pieces on the Ford.
Next is the front axle. The roll pin came out easily, but the pin itself needed a BFH to drive it out. Seems to be in decent shape otherwise.
Now I am deciding where to cut the frame as I want to keep the rear section attached for now. Hopefully, I will have the tractor home this goes into so I will be able to see what I need.
I guess I will go ahead and spill the beans! The tractor I hope to put this into is an AC 716 6-speed. It had been used as a puller and they cut the front frame to accept a Kohler Magnum Twin, which I happen to have one of those. I plan to take everything from the BGB back off it and install this Eaton/Peerless in there. I will have a different seat/rear fender arraignment also. Should keep me busy for a while.
As I get going, I will need some help figuring some things out. It will be next month before I bring the AC home, so stay tuned.
