I have been searching for one of these for a few year's now, and as luck would have it my friend and GTTalk member jableman spotted this hidden in an add in Iowa on CL. This is not the first time Jason has spotted for me, and I always buy because well I,I have to have it, some of his spots include my Porter Cable and Gemco big boy and 59/60 Homelite this guy finds them like a blood hound finds a criminal. Well this time it is ( My Holy Grail ), a Brillion Iron works GT6 Explorer a rather rare yeah, I used the R word in this case GT. Thanks Jason I'm absolutely thrilled to own this machine here are a couple of pics. Two things are missing notably its Briggs 143302 engine and its seat spring, I did get the deck which is in remarkable shape and came with the belts. I now have a very good rapport with the seller and he has other goodies he wants to sell I will list his items here. Fastenal shipped it to me from IA.to NJ for 200.00 dollars... stop making sense.

Tom, there are two members that have one here, so I'm hoping I can get some info from them about the spring height I already have the seat. I don't think it will be ready for PA. this year. I have two I'm currently involved with a 60 Homelite and a 62 552 Wheel horse got my hands full.

Nice! By any chance, would the previous owner have the engine? The missing variable speed sheaves are mounted to it. Excellent find with nice decals and overall appearance. A candidate to leave unrepainted.

Couldn't wait to open the thread and see what you had in store for us, Hank. Wasn't disappointed. Can't say as I've seen one before, but she's a looker, for sure. Great bones. Looking forward to you working your magic, Hank :thumbs:  

 

Also, kudos to you, Jason.......say, you wouldn't know where I could find a Ford Model AA u joint, would you, lol? :wave:

He does not have the engine but he send me the sheave I have to figure out how it mounts to the engine.
