I just got another tractor yesterday.It is supost to be Wards.It has been painted (spray can) power blue.EVERYTHING. Before I really bug all you, where would the ID tag /number be. I have a JD and a Bolens. It is not where these are. It is a hydro 16hp.This is a good running but very ugly tractor.

Don, in the "Reply to this topic" box you will see a "More Reply Options" button in the lower right corner. Click on that and it will take you to the full editer. At the bottom of that window you will see "Attach Files" and a Choose Files button. This is where you select your photos. It's pretty straight forward after that. There are 2 versions of the uploader, basic and advanced. If you are having trouble loading with the basic version try the advanced! If you need more help just let us know.

Wish I could say I could give you some answer, but I can't.
Best I can do is wish you good luck and say that tractor has lots of potential.

First, Welcome, Don. I haven't a clue, but it does look Wards. Maybe a Gilson made unit?\

Did some searching thru the Gilson threads and found this:

Looks very similar in the grille!

It is a later model Gilson/MW tractor. I can't tell you exactly what year. I will do some more looking around.

Wow, they did use a bunch of color schemes. Almost looks like you could take your pick LOL.
The ones with your grill look yellow / white (or all red in the other thread... Repaint?)

I'm going to repaint,But lots of ether things it needs first.Sure wish I could get the manual for it,But not knowing the yr. makes it tough.Found the ID sticker But it was taped over took great care in removing it,But was not able to save it.Just keep searching I have a Bolens to use. I you know how to switch the Hydo. from low to hi that would help a lot.Don't want to force it without knowing.
Thanks Don in Ca.
