Kenny, thank you for uploading the jac 3-point hitch manual. I was able to identify what I had.  the p o didn't find all the parts in his barn for the 3-point, all he had was the 2 lift arms, the center shaft, and the center pivot point bracket.  he said if he found the rest he would let me have it.  I figure it's a good start on a three point tho.  I can maybe use the tiller shaft mount brackets as a pattern to make brackets for the 3-point shaft.  I have an extra set of lower arms from an FF that should work too.

The Ford lower arms are not even close to the FF. Here the drawing for those.

The tractor doesn't look too bad the tiller looks in very good condition from trying to see the wear on the tines is it ?

The first one I brought home is a closed side lgt 145, has a tiller, motor is toast.  Looks complete.   The second one I brought home a couple of days ago is also a closed side 145.  after changing the condenser and spark plug, it runs great.  It came with a 48 inch snow blade, 50 inch mower deck, and wheel covers.  This is the one I was going to restore, using the first 145 as a parts tractor.

Then the 165 open side came up for sale and I couldn't pass it up.  The lift cylinder is bad on it, the fender deck is just about rusted thru, and someone opened a new hole in the hood (looks like they used a torch) when they replaced the gas tank.  I will end up selling the running 145 and keeping the 165.
