Thanks. I have decided to do a restoration with some upgrades. I am looking for parts for the 195. I can use parts for the Ford LGT 195 or the Jacobsen Heavy Duty tractor.

Somehow, I completely missed this thread. Some nice Fords in here. Fordphan, thanks for bringing it up.
Here's a couple pics of mine, both before and after the repaint.

runs great, burns a bit of oil but it is strong!
over the winter it'll get new valve guides and rings. and maybe a proper paint refresh.
olcow, i might be contacting you for a set of those decals you were showing:smile1:

Here is the last Garden tractor my late father in law bought and brought by to show me. That is why I wanted it besides it being a Ford. I AM a Fordaholic anyway. I still have my 1st vehicle. A 71 F100 SportCustom my dad bought new and gave to me at 15.
Mine is a 12H with a 12HP Kohler. Now that it is running and cutting grass I am selling the 2 year old John Deere LA115. There is no comparison. The Ford rides 100 times better with the larger rear wheels and if the grass gets too high between cuttings at my sister's house that Ford just powers right on through it like it was nothing when the JD would have me crawling. The JD is a 19.5 HP Briggs and the Ford is a 12hp. Just a matter of torque I guess but the Ford will cut twice the grass as the new plastic hooded JD when the grass is high

Nice tractor and story behind it. Thanks for adding it. This is a good thread, need to keep it near the top. I will share the Fordaholic, since I didn't put it there. But it will stay, at least for now.
