I have had this derelict MW/ Gilson 16hp gear tractor for several years. It was an ex puller so it has been severely sodomized. Resto is out of the question. No spark, hack job external coil and etc. Has the starter/gen so that puts it pre '72. Have never been a fan of the old flojets and the 40+ year old ignition system can be a PITA, so I am drinking..er ah thinking about transplanting a vert twin flatty and doing a hot rod 1/2 scale 8N ford kinda thing or a junkyard jalopy. I found a good deal on some 5X4.5 trailer wheel/tires and started throwing parts at this for a mock up. cant decide if it would be easier to get the original engine running or just say screw it and get WAY out of the box on this one. On a side note, it came with an odd ball tire just to make it a (sort of) roller. It looks like a CC original wheel with a trashed goodyear diamond tread tire. If anyone needs the wheel, you can have it, just pay whatever fastenal wants for shipping.
