hi all,

 

today I picked up an old Gilson Mower 52106-48236 ser. 4326L51 606

 

Happy as I am with my new old machine and once at home I started to look around and noticed something is missing :-( - the previous owner told something about loosing the belt way too often, but now I understand why.....the belt guide (engine) is missing. This part has nr 240722 and looks like in the picture attached (nr 7). I would not be so lucky as to hear from anybody here that they would have a spare one of these for me?

 

That would make me very happy. Please let me know, and thanks for a very good forum.

Welcome to GTT. I hope that you have already downloaded the manuals. Try Joe's Outdoor Equipment. He is on our Sponsor Section of the Forum. Sometimes you will have to fabricate the part you need. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks Rick - I did some more research and found the missing part on ebay via a Toro part number #701672 (did Toro buy Gilson sometime?) 

 

Anyway, looking forward to receive the part and get mowing :-)

 

Have a good weekend, 

 

br Albert

OK, while waiting for the belt guide from the US I decided to do some work on the wiring. Obviously the solenoid did not like my handling because merely by looking at it one post came free  :ah_shoot:  -  (see pic attached) anyway, new solenoid ordered and the rest of the work went ok.

 

regards, Albert

As I continue to repair and shine up my Gilson RE8 I came over this information here regarding a cross reference list for Gilson part numbers to Lawn Boy part number:

 

Part Number Cross Reference - Gilson® to Lawn-Boy . . . . . . . .492-4603 

 

Is there anybody here that would happen to have this cross reference? I believe it will be easier to find spare parts via the Lawn-Boy numbers than the Gilson numbers?
