HANKG this all of ours' site. I only chip in with the manuals info because it is a great treasure and somebody should. I pretty much learned not to volunteer in the Army but I try to help here. When someone else remembers the manuals, that is great.

 

Welcome to GTT 1hotflame. Relax and enjoy the site. Check the galleries for pics of similar machines. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome aboard!  Post a picture of your tractor when you get a chance.  I have a small selection of Gilson manuals on my computer, and about 30% are uploaded onto this website.  A picture will help me narrow down what series you have and thus what years to look at.  Each Gilson model will narrow your tractor's birthday down to a year.

I can take it. I do find it funny that we older guys usually think nothing of ribbing each other but women and younger people get upset. I think that the b-busting and discipline that we had in the 50s and 60s made us oveall better equiped to handle adversity. Enjoy your Sunday,my show got rainned out(second one this spring). Rick

so just making sure in the manual section under yt & gt cross reference along the top of the page is the model number of the tractors correct so mine is a 53073  47475 so any row under that with a dot in it is an attachment that fits my tractor??? like on the first page a 63505 3 gang mower will fit my tractor??? thanks for the confirmation
