Looking at the 1973 Tractor Parts List and Parts Diagram; and comparing the features of my MW/Gilson, I have drawn the conclusion that I have a 16 HP Vari-Speed, with Power Lift and New Fender, which would be a GIL 33155A, or possibly a GIL 33145B. Have not found the manuals in the manual archive. I now am seeking a manual for either of the above models. Any leads out there?  I have been using a Gilson S-series tractor manual for the 769 and 770 models. But some of the features are different tan on mine.  Thanks, ken

Yes, Ben. I found that the brake band I had purchased, based on the S-series book I had been using , is the wrong one, but I think and hope I can make it work. so the model must be GIL 33155A. Thanks, ken

Well, the 1973 tractor parts list and parts diagram I quoted from shows two (2) models with the features similar to mine. The 33145B shows MW, 16HP Vari-Speed, Power lift. The 33155A has the same features and adds a phase "New fenders". my MW has running boards and I suppose that is what the comment "New fenders" refers to. Still learning here. ken
