Found a pair of "pins" with sliding rod at one end. The dimensions are 1" diameter and tapered end and the total length of pin is 2 1/4" long. What is the name and what are they used for. Thanks.mw_1inch_dia_by_2.25inch_pin.JPG

After looking at the pic for 5 or 6 minutes, I was about to

give up.

I had no idea what they're for.

BUT, then I went back to you're original post and figured it out!

They're for your mw Gilson.

Will is correct, they mount front implements like mule drives to the front of the frame on a Gilson tractor.

Looks like the Pins that hold the plow or snow blower on the front.Put it in the hole and push the small pin into the square keeper.

 

 

 

Here found a couple pics.

I was missing one of those on my old monkey so I took an old Chinese deep well socket and drilled a hole in it jammed it in the hole and wired it fast.

Thanks to KC9KAS,  Casey, IamSherwood and EricFromPa(Thanks for the pics).

I just picked up a tiller with side skirts and the PTO mule. Never would have been able to attach it without those pins, unless I had found them or found EricFromPa solution. Great!! That means I also found an  older set of pins for the tiller connection as well as one of the original wear plates for the tiller. My day is made! ken

They are referred to as trunion pins in the manual.  The tiller PTO, dozer blade frame, generator, etc. mount from them.
