I got it almost home on Saturday. I ended up leaving it in the shop at work to thaw out.

It took some doing to break it free of the ice.

I wrapped a logging chain around the front bumper and hooked it to the trailer hitch on my van. Took three 3-4 foot snaps on the chain to break it free. Cool

Then it was all my 2000 lb Superwinch could do to drag it up on the trailer. Something about 4 frozen flat tires.

It is one solid tractor, if I'd pulled that hard on one of these modern stamped steel frames, it would have come apart.

Should have a few pics up tonite after I get home.

1977 Ford (jacobsen) LGT100. this is the unit u want for tough. 755 pounds with the deck.
10 hp cast iron industrial Kohler. Heavy wall steel frame.
Electric PTO clutch, rear PTO, Drive shaft to RAGB, pulley into 4 speed Transaxle with a granny gear. This is a hardcore beast.

Thats a pto drive tiller on the arse end. I can drive whatever I want off of that. Also, there is an extra drive pulley on the engine. If I forgo the Snowblower I can use that pulley for a Hydro pump.

Its an old crate, but its worth every dime to me. Cost me 200 cash and 95 for fuel and trailer rental.

I got a line on a Ford LT75 with an 8.5 BS motor , mower deck and factory snow blade. Dude wants 250. I'lll pay it if he drops it off. I can stuff my 15.5 motor in it, add a couple of hundred pounds of steel tot he chassis, and push serious snow.

That one depends on my CHristmas bonus.

Those would be worth restoring or at least cleaning up - Ford lawntractors are a rare breed, specially ones that are still working.

Well, I slimed the tires and got them sort of holding air. I won't worry about getting new rubber till I actually decide whether it gets tracks or not.

Pulled and cleaned the carb, removed the implements, checked the oil etc.

Put a new fuel line, filter and shut off valve on it this morning before work.

Turned the key and with a bit of protesting it cranked over good. Tried with the choke on, no start.

flip the choke off and three rotations later is purring right along. took it for a spin around the shop, tried all the gears, checked out the pto. Everything works except the lights.

I'll take it home today.

It will be rebuilt as required to get it to good working status. I'll add hydraulics, and fix up the sloppy transaxle and RAGB. Clutch and brakes require adjustment. Wiring needs to be redone. Also the body needs a bit of work.
Motor needs a good tune, and is not the original, Although it is the correct replacement. Depending on the actual condition of the engine I may repower it with a 10 HP diesel.
I am still torn between wheels and tracks, but it will be a working tractor, with at least a dozer blade on the front.

Around here these old beasts are rare and hard to come by. So it will be worth the effort, but it will probably take a couple years to build.
