Sweet trailer. My dad had a Ford trailer that went with the Ford 100 that he bought new, but doesn't remember what happened to it. I am always on the lookout for a new one.

The manual I have shows the 145 with two versions. Actually 3, The S/N shouls help isolate the year. If you post the model / serial numbers I'm sure it can be narrowed down.

It is between a '74-'76 , they had black steeringwheels in the later versions like yours. It was made from '72 - '76 , mine is a '72 thus having a white steering wheel , also the later versions have a choke knob that pulls out, mine rotates to activate the choke.

My 73 has a pull choke, but it's a 120 so that may be a difference. Also, only black wheels are available for replacements, and my white one just fell apart due to age.
Post the engine serial number, that'll help narrow down the year.

Well the only thing I know is the serial number labels suck.

SN appears to be...
09JC33107799
Engine
spec...
60248d
Serial
62011142

Since my torq has a spec of 60258d I am going to 'assume it is a 74...but hopefully you guys know more than I...I went to the Kohler site and didn't find anything ...

Thx again

I needed a "special" bolt for the idler arm on my 50" deck, Messicks listed it at $21.79. I picked up two with lock nuts and bushings at Fastenal for $1.80.

I did just purchase a muffler for the K321 from Messicks for $165.00

I guess it depends on who has what, and how bad you want it.

Adrenalin540, you are missing the return spring on the hydro lever.
Thanks Larry, someone else pointed it out so I grabbed one off a dead LGT125 I have so I am good to go...thanks for the response. Hopefully the tractor takes shape this weekend. :) I did some sanding on the 'thick' primer today so one more coat of primer and a 600 wetsand then I spray the trailer 'blue'...Looks real nice now...the hood and rear fender will get a clear coat this weekend as well...
