Hi all. I'm a newbie here (first post) having just bought a 1967 Ford 120. It's all restored and is a thing of beauty, but it's missing a few items. I'm trying to figure out where I can get a cover for the battery box, a hitch to be able to pull a dump cart, etc., and a lever for the PTO to engage/disengage the mowing deck.

I'd really appreciate if anyone can steer me in the right direction. I'm thinking I might have to look to my local sheet metal shop to have these things made up.

Thanks,
Jeff

Welcome. Nice looking tractor. I'm sure someone from the Ford camp will be able to help you. I'm not familiar with the Ford's.

I have a Ford 100, a Ford 120 and a Jacobsen Chief. All essentially the same. The battery covers are really tough to find. None of mine have it and I'm at the point where I'm going to fab one. I have plans somewhere and will post when I find them. I'm also in the market for the 42 inch aluminum decks. I have one on the Jacobsen and it cuts very well. I usually hear about one just after it's been thrown away. LOL... When I get home tonight, I'll take a couple pictures of the rear hitch and PTO handle. Making both should be pretty easy.

Welcome to the forum. Looks like Rick has you covered. In the manuals section you will find a manual for this.

I took a picture of the rear hitch, as well as the Power Drive unit. Turns out I don't have a lever, but you should be able to fabricate one that fits over the stub. I went to the New Holland website and screen captured a picture of it. Also is a drawing for the battery cover. I don't recall where the drawing came from, but looks like it should do the trick. The battery cover part number is JAC331549 and the Clutch Lever is JAC154059.

Rick, thanks for posting the pics. I have seen a couple threads about the power drive's, but didn't know what it was. At least I know what it looks like now.

Rick, do you happen to have the manual for the mower Jacobsen mower deck (assuming it is the same as the Ford)? I was playing around with the deck and could not for the life of me get the thing mounted - couldn't even get it on the front hanger. Anything to assist in mounting, photos or whatever... and the routing for the belt. That would be helpful. BTW, thanks for the last pics you sent. I am having the battery box cover and trailer hitch fabricated as we speak.
