I recently got this tractor. I know very little about it. It sat for 11 years, I did get it running, and moving. Everything seems great on it. Just needs some maintenance. Anyone have any manuals for this? I don't even know what year it is. The date code on the engine is 87-12-14. I know the engine is not original. Anyone know what the knobs, and levers do?

    If I can't do it slow then it's not going to get done.

Welcome to the group. Nice find. I know little about the Garden Mark but someone will be along who does. Have you tried our manuals section? Good luck.

Thanks for the welcome. I have not tried the manual section of the forum yet. Maybe I will dig through that info, and see what I can find.

Thanks for the tip. I will post some pictures over there.

For the age of this tractor, im thinking 1960s, it is in good shape.

That is a very good tractor. Find the model and serial numbers on the tractor to help get the correct manuals. You want the operators manual and the engine manual as starter. Did you get any attachments with it? Good Luck, Rick

I got a 48 inch mowing deck that is in good shape. The tag appears to be missing. I have been looking for a stamping on the frame, but have not found one yet.

After looking through the manuals, I think this is a 1970-71 year model. The sheet metal matches to that.

After further investigation, I would say it is a 1970 GIL-33029B according to this parts manual.
