Hi all -  I am new member from Northwest New Jersey and recently retired - more time for tractors!

 

I have a 1971 Montgomery Ward Gilson Variable 15 since 2009.  Great machine use around the yard with a Gravely dump cart for moving firewood and "stuff".  Haven't really done much on it. Replaced points with electronic ignition and did a little work on valves.  I attached a couple photos. 

 

Recently bought a JD318 with Hydrostatic drive as my wife could not drive the MW manual shift - its a clutch thing..... :D

Welcome to the group.  Very good looking tractor.  Tractor just seems to keep showing up once you get one.
