Yes it runs and drives. No mower deck . Frame is cracked at transaxle, motor mounts are shot(motor is resting on the frame)..Its been sitting for 3 or 4 years next to an orchard getting sprayed by the spranklers , hense the brown color. One good tire!

Glad to have you with us.

I'm sure you can make a tractor out of it again.

Looks like you definitely have a project and you have the right spirit. Welcome to the group. I don't have any Ford garden tractors at the moment so I can't help you with the parts but there are a few guys on here that do have Fords and hopefully they can help you out. Also check with one of our site sponsors like Patton Acres and Bob's Garden Tractors.

Rod, Welcome. I have a 165 also. What part of the head lights are you needing? It looks like the lenses are there. Can you get a pick of the frame crack? That can probably be welded back together. These are stout tractors, so I hope you can get it going. I'll get you a link for the motor mounts this evening.
Here is what mine looked like when I started.

Thanks Kenny, I checked out the motor mounts , they will work. I will be able to weld up the cracks. ..The head light lens are complete but full of cracks.
I was looking to relace them with new ones,as the originals are NLA . Thanks again for the info on the mounts.

I used 3/16" allen head fine thread bolts and nylock nuts to install my new motor mounts. No problems thus far. On the head lights, probably have to find some used replacements or a parts tractor (Jacobsen is the same). Try to get some pics of the frame cracks posted. I may have a crack in mine, but haven't found on yet. Be nice to see where yours is cracked at.
Once you get it going, you will like this tractor a lot. Oh yeah, almost forgot. McMaster has the seat pan mounts, also. Just have to pick the ones that match yours. Good luck.
