Just signed up for GTtalk, seems like a great forum! I could use some help with my new-to-me Gilson. The Briggs engine tag says 1969, so I'll go with that. The Gilson Brothers tag says:
Model # 754 42326
Serial # 076676
My Intertec manual mentions a model 754 for Gilson, but none of the diagrams look the same (front suspension, brake/clutch linkage, etc.). And Googling gives me absolutely nothing about 754 or 42326 - from 1969, or any year for that matter. So - identifying the tractor would be my first trick. Then, If I could find any literature, like an owners or service manual - that would be aces. At minimum, it sure would be great to find a parts diagram - it's going to need some belts, and I don't trust the previous owner to have put the right ones on. So again - nice to be here, and thanks for the help in advance!
