I'm new to owning this machine and have a few questions.
1. How much is a plow worth
2. How much is the rear put worth
3. Any ideas how to make it stay in 2nd gear?

Hi...welcome to the forum....I have an LGT100, which is the same machine, just 10 hp instead of your 12 hp. There were 2 plows available for these, an economy plow which was best for the manual lift models such as ours....It is also more rare than the heavier duty plow for the hydraulic lift. Here is a pick of mine with the economy plow.

Not sure what they are worth, but am thinking $100-150 should buy one. 

 

PTO, about the same....They were used to run a tiller, do you have one for your Ford?

Not sure about the 2nd gear problem......

Welcome to GTT. You can download some manuals for the LGT 120 from our Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks Poncho62,

 

I attached a picture of the rear pto.. It has a set of gears and a center output.  Most tillers I saw look they hook to the end of the put shaft.  This one looks to have a gear reduction on it via the sprocket set up.  I also attached a picture of the plow it looks a little different than yours.  It also appears to have a mounting plate that goes in the frame in the front. 

 

My son and I are turning it into a pulling tractor so we don't need any of the attachments so I'm going to try to sell them and was just trying to figure out how much to ask.  The deck has a bunch of bogger welds on it but no holes.

 

I've got the pto, plow, deck, and electric clutch to get rid of so far.  So any guidance on how much to ask is appreciated.

 

 

I'll check the manual to see if I can find any info on the second gear problem.  I did notice most of the fender mounts are gone so there might be some misalignment with the gate.

That plow you are showing is the heavier duty plow.......I am thinking you could get $100-200 for it. Was it attached to your tractor?...I cant see how the manual lift would work with that. It would be a real bear to lift. ........The PTO , never seen that setup, probably home made to drive something other than a tiller.

Thanks for the info. The ptu is painted like the tractor so if it is homemade some one put some effort into it. I wonder if they adapted another brand tiller. I'm going to count the teeth and see if it would be 540@3600. The guy I bought it from talked about plowing snow with it. Any ideas how much the ptu should fetch?

The PTO from the engine to that small gear is likely original. The chain and large gear has been added to it by someone, no idea why. Here is a pic of the original tiller drive setup

As for price, they are sought after by LGT collectors.....I would ask $150.

Any idea what is factory and what is invented? I found galvanized pipe fitings as spacers and the nylon bearing blocks look suspicious.

My LGT 165 had a rotten wood block on it. Those are probably a PO fix.

One of my PTOs had a wooden block about 1/2 way down the shaft. I put a bearing and bearing block in its place.

I think the wooden blocks were factory.
Old disc harrows used oil soaked wood for bearings.
And these weren't really bearings they were just vibration dampeners.

Everything below your shaft is factory.
Above the shaft to the right is factory.
To the left is adapted from something else.
