I finally made some time to work on the Gilson I bought recently. It runs great now. One blade was stuck completely and the other was very tight , so I intended to replace the bearings.
Here's what I did. I'm afraid a replacement will be hard to find. I've not found another model 52051A Gilson anywhere , or any other mower with a similar deck.
Notice, please, the six holes in the deck. Were these for cleaning the underside by spraying water through the holes you suppose? I know some "new model" mowers have a port for that purpose. I'm not sure that I would clean mine that way. I think I would rather see what was going on under there myself.Does anyone know of another mower , obviously made by Gilson, with the same deck ?
