Havent had any luck in the Ford forum, was hoping the Gilson guys might be able to help....picked up this 1988 Ford LGT 18H last week.  Came with the tractor, deck, tiller, and blade all for $250.  Think I scored pretty good, although the tractor isn't running (carb needs a rebuild, one valve cover needs a helicoil where they stripped the plug, needs starter solenoid) and the tiller looks like it's missing some of the drive pieces cuz I cant figure out how it's powered from the tractor.  Havent been able to find any of the manuals online, just a couple google images of the brochure.  I know LawnBoy made a version of this tractor too after they bought out Gilson.  Was hoping someone in this forum could help me out and tell me a little more and/or point me in the right direction for info.  Thanks.

Helped a lot.  Didn't see what I was looking for there as far as the blade goes but I can see now what I'm missing for the tiller drive on the back of the tractor, thanks a ton.  Also did a little google searching on my lunch break and am finding out there's not much for rebuild kits/parts available for the Kohler Magnum series as compared to whats out there for the K series.

Know anyone that sells a rebuild kit for a M18 with gaskets, rings, seals, valves, etc?

Found the owners manual on eBay for $15, the manual for the tiller from SSB tractor for $21 plus s&h. Was able to download both the shop and owners manual for the engine and I see Kenny P put the manual for the blade on here so was able get that too. Time start finding parts!
