 I just wondered if anyone had put a sears transmission in a Ford LGT 100. The sears tranny has a high and low in each gear. This has always been a feature that is needed in the Ford. Sometimes the gap between the gears is to great. I have a 1976 LGT 100 and a sears part tractor. I haven't done any measuring but I did notice the sears drive pulley is on the right side and the Ford is on the left. Just a thought. Probably too much changing and problems to work out.

Good idea. If the reverse has a high/low. I have always found the reverse to fast in my lgt 100.

I really like a challenge - and a more useful adaptation,  but with the drive pulleys on opposite sides,  you have your work cut out for you. 

I'd probably take the easy way out and find a hydro Ford tractor to put your engine on or get a Deere :mad2:  or Massey :thumbs:  with vari-drive to use as a splitter for between-gear speeds.

I grew up mowing with a Massey 12 gear drive and it had 20 speeds forward and 5 in reverse.

   Thanks for the input. I figured everyone would think it was a crazy idea.I'm redoing a Cub 108 now and hopefully The Ford will be next. It is my snow plow tractor and is in need of repair. I rebuilt the engine 30 yrs ago and it's smoking bad now... still a standard bore so I have a ways to go. 

   The fast reverse has always been a pain, especially when backing a trailer.

I think I have it worked out in my head but sometimes my head is off somewhere else. Just got to get started.

Good luck, the axles are not equal length on the ford, the rear frame section is off set for the pulley to exit on the left as this is where the clutch is. If there is some way to flip the shaft in the sears tranny it might work as long as the axles will swap? (Dont think they will if I recall) but if there is way, i would love to see it done, as they really botched that when designing the lgt standard shifts.
