That tractor was manufactured by "Gilson Brothers" and is circa 1966. I actually have one squirreled away in the shed. Great machine. Mine developed carb issues (float stuck on me). But anyway, great project, and somewhat uncommon tractor, if not rare. It was sold under names like Burns and Wards, and everything in between.

Casey I think you should just send me all your carbs lol. :D

Thanks for the help everyone. Not sure what I'm going to do yet. If we have trouble finding parts for it and the project stalls, I'm afraid my daughter will lose interest. At 7 years old, she's still learning that some things take time to get done.

If the owner sends me the other pics today I'll post them.

I know I have carb problems guys, but I troubleshoot them until it works, or if the machine pissed me off... It gets to sit in a corner for a while first lol.

So all your tractors are in 'time out'?
