I might have better luck in the Gilson forum, but anybody have a manual for a Ford LGT 18H made in the mid to late 80's?  Or maybe know if there's a Gilson model that just rebranded as a Ford thats the same?  Thanks

Eric, thank you. I saw that lawnboy made a version of this same tractor after I made the post. I might try eBay to see if I can get a manual that way.

Just watch that you don't try to Download a manual.I did a google search and found 1 but it was loaded with a pretty nasty Browser hijacker bug.It would redirect you to some online shopping search site named SearchBiz no matter what address you put in.Took me a bit to get rid of it.Luckily It just infected Firefox and I was able to remove it fairly easy.

 

 

 

 

Did you see the little Ford LGT 18H on ebay? lol  Would make a pretty cool hood ordainment if it was mounted on your tractor.

I might try to get one off of eBay, saw one on there for about 20 bucks.  Here are some pics of the tractor and implements.  Got it off Craigslist about an hour and half's drive from my house yesterday.  Got the tractor with 48" deck, tiller, and blade all for $250.  Think I made a good score.  It's not running however, has a couple electrical issues, the guy stripped out one of the spark plug holes on one of the heads, and the carb is all torn apart and looks like it needs rebuilding.  Also a lot of old oil down on the base of the block and frame, don't know if they spilled some or if its got leaks.  Probably wont tear into it until late winter and I'm not sure if I'll do a full rebuild/restore on it or just get it running and use it as a worker.  Kinda told the better half it'd be more of a worker and to get my 8 year old out there working with me rather than a show piece.  The tiller also looks like it needs some work, its missing the back plate/guard that smooths the tilled soil and it also looks like part of the drive shaft is missing.  Theres some sort of half shaft on it but it's only about 10" long and I cant see anywhere on the back of the tractor that looks like it receives it.  Anyone that has one of these or the Lawnboy version that could give me some info I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks

Hey there Firemang.

Just curious. Have you ever gotten the tiller hooked up to your tractor? I also have the same model with the tiller and front blade. I haven't used it in too long but it used to be a good set up. I am curious about your tiller. It does not look quite like the one I have. Seems to be a different method of attachment and the rear picture of your tractor doesn't show the rear PTO. Did I miss seeing it?

Good eye. Yeah the pto setup,for the tiller was missing in those pics. The guy I bought it from swore that all the parts and pieces he had for the tractor (he bought it secondhand) were there. So I just assumed it was missing as he said he'd never used the tiller and went on my way. After looking all over the Internet for a pto I found his number and called him back and asked him to look. A couple days later he called me and said he'd found it. So I have that now, but still haven't tried to hook up the tiller and run it yet. The tractor us all tore apart, just got everything painted and cleaned up and going to start putting it back together over the next couple months.

I'm looking forward to seeing it. I haven't used mine in years but I can tell you that it was a very capable and tough little tractor. I plowed a lot of snow and dirt and tilled many garden plots over the years. Please keep us posted on your progress. 

Thanks man..

Here's a new to me Troy Bilt Tuffy I found on the side of the road.  Stopped and asked the guy if he was getting rid of it and he said I was gonna sell it but if you want it take it, runs and everything!  Might try it out this year as a cultivating tiller and if I don't like it sell it.

Here's a few new ones.  I'm waiting on my local machine shop to finish building me a new driveline for the tractor as the stock one is completely shot.  Once I get that back I'll get the engine in and can finish it up.
