I concur with Joe.
The only number that tells me anything is the Engine number. The first two digits tell me its a 1972 model but not the engine size. It could be a 10 HP engine but, if it is original to the tractor it will be a 12, 14 or 16 HP as the LGT-100 (10 HP version) was not available with hydro. Unless you can find some remnants of a designation on the shroud, I don't know of any easy way of positively determining the HP of the engine. There should be a decal located on the air cooling shroud either on the carburetor side at about the level of the points cover or on the flywheel side near the top. The designations are as follows: K241=10HP, K301=12HP, K321=14HP and K341=16HP. The model number is cast into the block but is not visible without removing the electric PTO clutch. These are wonderful little tractors and I have 10HP, 12HP and 14HP open side versions as well as two 16HP closed side versions. Only the LGT-125 is currently running. I have the engines for a 14HP and a 16HP bored over size with everything I need to completely rebuild them except the gumption. Good mower decks are becoming difficult to find for these machines. I have a 48" blade on my LGT-125 and it can push a lot of snow for a machine of its size!

BTW, if that grill has no serious cracks, it is quite unusual and will contribute handsomely to the looks of a restoration.

LOL.....I guess I didn't clearly say what I really meant. What I meant was that many of them wind up being smashed and patched up with sheet metal and screws and look pretty ugly.
Yours looks very nice, by the way!
I would say your tractor looks to be worth repairing even if you did not want to take on a total restoration.
Were you able to find any remnant of a model number on the engine?

Oh, I see about the grill. Yea, its really not a bad old tractor. The engine number is all there, I just neglected to put it on here. It's a KOHLER 241AS, SPEC# 466740, SERIAL # 5002707. I have the deck but the spindle housings are in pretty bad shape, inside and out. I have a lathe and could probably line the bores but that's a bunch of work. Haven't really looked for replacements yet. Just wanted to see if I could find a (inexpensive) hood.

A kohler K241AS is 10HP, has a special oil pan (I believe on some of those Fords, the engine oil pan is part of the front axle, which makes it special). The S means its electric start.

What do you mean by "unusual" on the grill? Isn't it like the one you have? Thanks Irv
