Bought an abused lgt 165 for $145 and it needs some work. Bought this as a project for me and my boys to play with and have run into a snag. The brake pad is broken up and I can't seem to find a replacement anywhere. Anybody have a source for this?

Find a place that does brake and clutch pads for old tractors. A piece of woven flexible brake pad material will fit in there, cut to size and glue it in. Take the band with you when you go to a place and they may cut and glue it in for you.
Or if you still have the piece and it’s in reasonable shape
, just glue it back in. I doubt a new compete part would be available.

:wave:  Welcome to the forum! McMaster-Carr has the material to replace those. Just glue it on with JB Weld. Is it an open side or closed? Some pics would appease the folks here!

Welcome to GTT. First, an LGT 165 is a great tractor, congratulations on picking a winner. Second, a GT is a great project to do with your children. When my son was 12 we did the same thing to get him away from the computer. Third, you've come to the right place for info.

Start by going to our Manuals Section(3 free downloads per day)and download the Owner's, Parts, and Service Manuals for your GT. Lots of reading for the kids to do. There are many possible sources for parts. The GT manufacturers used a lot of "off the shelf" and generic parts. Many small hardware parts are available from local hardware stores(especially the old ones). NAPA is also a good source for parts but, you have to find a parts guy who is willing to make the effort to look up the small engine parts. Our sponsors(top of forums page) are very good at finding the parts that you need. Chances are that the bakes are a common type that is readily available from one of our sponsors. They offer the advantage of alot of experience to help you choose the right parts.

Post some pics and tell us what attachments you have. Ask plenty of questions. We are all in this together. Good Luck, Rick

Being hydro, don't need brakes, just operate lever to other setting.  This have disc brake or band?  If band metal is good, any good brake material seller could cut and glue new band on for you if you have such a place. Discs are mostly same type on all the brands, have seen parts on epay for those, or a dealer of brand, New Holland maybe now for ford??

Thanks for all the replies. I'll call around and see if I can find somebody to make one or if our site sponsors might know of one available. It's a closed sided tractor and the hood and side panels are dent free but the grill has taken a beating. Got it for $145 bc I was told it needed a condenser but actually had a stuck exhaust valve. Got it running yesterday and once it was running I noticed the hydro filter leaking, has a split in the body and it's the old inline filter so I'll have to come up with something else(mod a spin-on in its place) that's not huge and a snag hazard. Can't figure out how to add photos from my phone or I'd show you guys this "gems lol

If you're using a phone to view this website your probably not in "full view" mode.  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and select full view mode.  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of your post.  Select more reply option to add photos.

 

If that doesn't work see post #3 by KennyP and at the bottom of his post is a link on how to do it.

Good luck!

Could an automotive in line fuel filter be substituted? There has to be some way to replace the old filter. Good Luck, Rick

Spin on filter conversion is not hard to do...Harbor Freight will have all the parts. I did mine on my 165

Thanks KennyP I appreciate the offer but need some thing easily and cheaply replaced.

Poncho, do you have a part number for f2f hat filter assymbly by chance? Can't say I've seen that at my harbor freight but can't say I've looked either.

I dont because I am in Canada, so bought mine at Princess Auto, which is a store much like HF up here. Look in the hydraulics section of HF, they will have them. Then, you also need 2 fittings that screw into that. Take your old filter with you to see what the right fittings are. The filter I used is a 1056 NAPA Gold. Total cost was about $30
