I recently picked up a Wards hydrostatic 14. Not running, but I want to restore it. I can't find any info, engine diagrams,etc. A manual would be great. Any word would be appreciated.0830151555.jpg

Welcome to GTT. That is a Gilson tractor. When you have some more posts you can download 3 free manuals per day from our Manuals Section. There will be separate manuals for the engine and tractor. Post some pics. Relax and enjoy he site. Good Luck, Rick

The pic shows a Briggs and Stratton engine. The lack of an air filter and the rust on the air intake worries me. The carb chould be cleanned and the oil changed before trying to start that. Good Luck, Rick

 

This tractor manual should be close to yours:  http://gardentractor...699-gil-33148a/

I've had it covered up, out of the weather. I've worked on b&s engines before. Rebuilt carbs. The guy I got the tractor from told me the engine was running good, but it needed points, and they were hard to get too. I don't know about that, I don't have enough posts yet to download the manual.

Points can be had at Napa.  Rebuild parts in certain sizes are hard to come by for that engine, as are valves.  All parts can be had, if you want to spend the money.  I would love to have a hydro Wards to go with my two gear drive models.

I'm guessing the engine is B&S 14h.p.? I can't locate any #'s stamped on the engine. Does the GIL-33048C identify the tractor, or the engine? I need to get the manual for the engine so I can get crackin on it.

I found the engine parts manual on the B&S site. Now all I need is the engine repair manual, and some extra money, and some extra time. Lol
