P S why don't you see gilson pullers?
Because they're shaft drive back to a right angle gear box and then a single Belt down to the transaxle.
They pull very well but gears for that gear box are getting hard to find.That's the weakest part and that is where it will break.
I've seen a BUNCH of older Hydro Gilsons pulling but only a couple gear drive.Unless you were to stuff a Cub Cadet transaxle in it I would think you would start breaking gear boxes.
Those cast iron 16hp Single cylinder engines are MONSTERS.32 CU IN engine 3.562 bore and 3.250 stroke.They were rated at a modest 16hp and 25.8 ft/lbs of torque at 2700 RPM.
