Good stuff and nice tractor!  I really like my two.  George Bradish tractors sells decals that are really good quality if you ever want to finish of the look of that beast.  They are well priced, the shipping to Canada kills me.

Okay awesome thank you ! yeah i have two LGT 145's and love them both. the only thing i dont care for is on my other one the steering box pin got sheered off and iv welded it multipal times but cant find a reasonably priced replacement

Sometimes it cheaper to find a whole parts tractor... The tractor in my avatar picture was my "parts" tractor.

Yeah thats how mine was "marketed" as well, i think i bought it from a guy not running for 150.. which isnt bad considering all that was wrong was a stuck float in the carb. 

There pretty hard to find in Michigan for decent prices. people dont realize, something might be rare but you have to take condition in to account as well. they all want outrageous prices for what they are trying to sell.... then wonder why the listings stay up for 6 months to a year lol.

Good stuff!  How are the sprockets and chain?  I made a thread when I redid my blower last spring.  Change the bearings, sprockets and chain + paint.  It may be helpful... keep up the good work!

She’s all re assembled and hungry for snow ! Luckily it’s supposed to start snowing this week. Although it won’t accumulate for a while it’s a good start ! Thanks for all the help fellas ! I couldn’t have done it without all of your input !

Hi enjoyed reviewing this thread .. I’ve run a Homelite jacobsen for 30+ years.. ive modified the snow blower a few ways to improve its functions.., but after reading your thread close I think folks are confused about mounting the snowblower subframe.. if your blower doesn’t lift high enough make sure the back is attached to a special bar .. Not attached to the hydraulic lift structure ... the part I’m talking about is in your diagram as item #48.. this is a special bracket for mounting the blower. These GTs only shipped with the bracket if snow blower or plow was purchased with machine

Yup that’s the same way I do it too. I was looking at photos of other people’s blowers also and they don’t seem to come far off the ground either so I should be good ! Thanks for all the measurements I wouldnt have gotten it done without them !!

This is what he is talking about. It is what is enclosed in the red box & was on the open side LGT. My LGT 145 has it as it came with blade & snowblower. I do not know if this was offered on the closed side LGT, but am looking at a way to add one on my LGT 100 which is a closed side. Nothing in any parts list that I found shows & I know the blade & snowblower mounts on the closed side is different. So it may be designed to attach to the rear lift bar. Both my blade & snowblower came with the open side LGT 145.

I think it is called the pivot shaft.  My 165 didn't have one as it was likely bought with only the mower deck.  I was able to build one out of 1" round stock and flat bar.
