Gents:

I am new to the forum, having recently purchased a 1969 Ford hydro 120. The tractor has a 42" Al deck, no rust and a non smoking motor. Can you all help with any of the below:

1. What should my first course of action be, ie change oil, tranny, etc?
2. Where can I get parts? New Holland, ebay, others?

Thanks,

JT

I would change all the fluids so you have a baseline of when they were last done.

I can't help you with your part search. Welcome to GT Talk.

Welcome to GTTalk JT.
Yes definitely change all fluid.

:welcometogttalk: Now that that is taken care of, on to your parts question. I am going to upload a couple manuals for the Jacobsen Chief. That is what this crosses over to. As far as where to buy parts, probably e-bay. Some things may cross over to a later year tractor. Anything before 1972 is real hard to find new for.

P.S. Can't upload, but have the owners and parts manuals for the Chief and Super Chief, serial # 1601 and up.

I appreciate all the help Gentlemen. I am excited about this tractor (having always bought "new"plastic tractors). It's an honor to be part of this group.

If I can figure out how to get a logo off the manuals I have, I'll upload them. Anybody have suggestions?

Would need something like photoshop which is an adobe product and can open pdf files to edit them or a full version of adobe. If you want to send them to me I can fix them up for ya. Just send me a pm and I can give you my email addy to send them to. If they are too large to email we can do something via ftp or upload to the site temporarily until I can download and edit them.

Thanks, George. One is 9.93 mb, other is 3.5 mb. I would be happy to upload, just need to do this when we both are online with time to get it done. Tomorrow morning, if it's not raining here, I will be taking the carport down. Plan to be there around 7:00 am, CST. If it needs to be an evening deal, so be it. Thanks. I believe these will be helpful for folks.

Kenny if you want to upload them now I can catch them. You can upload them to the manuals section of the site and I will hide them. Then I can download them and edit them and reupload to replace the original files since they are not that large it would be the easiest way.
