Does the transaxle look like This?
Vickers Unit.Manual states to use ATF Type A or B
Or Eaton 12 unit.
We're still looking for some manuals that were missing for the late 60s early 70s Gilsons/Wards and early to mid 80s Gilson/Wards.I gathered up as many as I could get from the Gilson/Wards Yahoo group and several other forums but we're still missing the early and late model Service manuals and a couple parts manuals.
You have to remember that these larger Gilson/Wards tractors were quite a bit more expensive than alot of the tractors at the time.Most were sold to Golf courses,state parks,government run origination's and people with money.So manuals are really hard to get ahold of.
I bought 5 of the 6 that I had at State Auction.2 Were used at a golf course 3 were used at a local State Park.Out of the 6 that I had only 2 were salvageable.3 had broken frames,1 had bad hydro and 3 had a blown or worn out engines.The only 1 that I got that was privately owned was the old Blue 16 Twin.It also had a cracked frame but was fixable.
