Just bought a decent 66 ford 100. Has mower deck but is missing linkage and a unknown belt size. Any help getting this together would be great. I called new holland and they have no serial or part numbers for it and I just got a owners manual for it but it doesn't show what I'm looking for. Also need oil type for motor and trann/axle manual only list capacities. Thanks

Welcome to GTTalk.  I moved your thread over to the Ford forum, I think you may get some better exposure to get answers to your questions.  Please check our manuals section to see if we have a manual for your tractor.

First off, welcome to GTtalk! Glad you decided to join us! :thumbs:

 

Here is the parts manual for the GT. http://gardentractor...-100-120-parts/

 

Here is the manual if you have the 42" Aluminum deck http://gardentractor...ord-mower-deck/

 

Here is the manual if you have the 36" steel mower deck http://gardentractor...-36-inch-mower/

 

If you are not aware already, Jacobsen makes the Ford GT that you own. The Ford 100 is the same as the Jacobsen Chief 1000.

 

Also, browse through our manual section, as there are many manuals for this GT.

 

Post pictures if you have them, it is always nice to see another classic GT, and it will aid in members trying to help you figure out what you might need.

 

As far as the engine oil, I personally will run SAE 30 if an old engine has sat for awhile,after it runs for a season I will either keep SAE 30 or I will change over to 10w/30.

 

The Trans. (if gear ) is just 80/90 gear oil.

:welcometogttalk:   If the deck is the 42" model, I believe the belt is an A139. But double check the manuals just in case my facts are wrong. I got that number from a guy I bought parts from. He has the 120 like I do and I need one if I plan on putting the deck on.

Thanks everyone for the help gonna be working on it in my spare time. I got a spark plug today but don't know what the gap is. I have a 48" deck on mine I need a belt number also I ll be posting some pics in the next few days I ll need some advice on the tires if there gonna be to big for the deck to fit. The linkage for the deck is the big thing I don't have any good diagrams or pics for reference.

I can post pics. The 48 deck is all steel and is way heavy. I have been told by alot of people not to run it on my 100 as it will be under powered. I am waiting for a 140 to come my ways. The 42" Aluminum deck is a good deck and my 100 has no issue running that

Don't forget to search for Jacobsen Chief 1000 in your searches. I find more listings on ebay when I search Jacobsen FORD LGT! Welcome and Good Luck!

Hi Dayton_King....new to the site but I just picked up a real nice 66 100...just modified from the standard PTO to the electric and got that working great. my problem is the 42" mower deck. Have it mounted ...every thing looks correct, it operated off the pto just right. The issue is I can not for the life of me get it to lift up...the lift assembly, hook etc. look to be correct but it will not budge. I am not familiar with this scissors style lifting carriage, but it looks pretty simple but it has me stumped...any ideas?

Should have a J hook from the deck to the lift handle. About 5 inches long
