It was a nice day at the shore in NJ 50 degree's so I brought out my Gemco and took a few pic's I finally figured a way to make the reverse direction pulley system work after many failed attempt's a trip to the Oreck vacuum store is just what the DR. ordered a one piece 13"L BY 1/2 rubber belt that fit snugly over a metal pulley was the answer there are not a lot of these GTs around to look at for answer's.IMG_0935.JPG IMG_0936.JPG IMG_0937.JPG IMG_0938.JPG IMG_0939.JPG IMG_0940.JPG

I did not paint the tractor but did restore some of the mechanism's it was a challenge parts had to be made such as bearings and rear axel along with work to the reverse pulley

Hank, maybe I missed it but I have never seen a picture of your Gemco until now.  I'm really impressed with it.

Those are factory implements along with the lift arm a pretty rare find.

the cultivator looks to be a Brinly, model B61, same as an early WH used. I would bet plow is also. Its pretty common to find a tractor company that out sourced the attachments.
