Just picked-two MW by Gilson tractors. The first one has a 1974 gear-starter type B&S engine with a blown rod. The ag tires take air but the outer plys are blown out in a few places. The second tractor is very similar but looks to be about a year older with a 1973 B&S engine equipped with a starter-generator. There was still a little ancient fuel in the tank. The engine had oil in it and was not locked up. I sprayed a little lube in the bore and some choke spray in the carb and she fired up with the jump pack. I need to repair the terminal connections to the ignition switch. Both have Vickers hydros which look to leak, and have hydraulic lift. OEM wheel weights on one of them. In the 6 or so hours I had them I got the carb cleaned, oil changed and air filter replaced on the runner. It has a rear discharge deck. Unfortunately the dash/cowl is busted.
