Picked these two up. Both runners.  I am an Allis guy but have been wanting this style of Gilson for quite some time.  The whole package came with two snow blowers, two decks(one mounted) and the other is a rear discharge.  Also came with an OEM hydraulic pump and lift cylinder that I need to figure out how to mount correctly.  

 

The orange and cream one I am a little confused by.  

 

Yellow wards has model number plate still attached:  33045C

 

Orange one has no model name plate but is has the grill with a 10 on it and variable speed.    Please help experts!!

 

Also, I reached my maximum downloads of 5 yesterday and can't download any more parts manuals.  any help there?

Both of these are 72 or older(full running board's in 73), the pump mount's under the seat and driven off drive shaft, i have these if pics are needed, the variable pulley if good should be greased, a single speed pully makes a quick fix if bad, good tractors overall and tuff, good luck

Both machines look to be the "S" series. Without actually looking it up, my guess would be 1970.

My wife has a 1970 S-14 hydro and it looks like both of these tractrors.

Awesome!! thanks for the help guys.  The hydraulic lift needs new hows but everything moves freely and has super clean fluid.  Luckily the previous owner took care of these guys.

I think the 14 is correct and looks quite nice as is, on the 10 the hood and fenders look original, look inside the tractor for places the spray can missed

My wife's S-14 H is a GILSON (made by Gilson) and the paint we used was Rustolium Allis Chalmers orange and was as close to the origininal color as we could find.

Gilson also made GT for Montgomery Wards, Ford and a couple others

Here are some pics of my gilson 16 hp varispeed and tiller I restored a couple years ago,And unfortunetly sold to a guyHe took good care of it but I have been thinking of getting it back,Price is the issue .He wanted $2,400 for it and I sold it to him with the tiller for less than $600,I needed the money at the time.I found out today he sold it to a collector in Hayes kansas ,He wont say what he got out of it but I am sure it was lots more than I would give so hope the new guy likes it!  I have pics of it thru the whole restore and will try to find them if any would help you,She was completely naked at one time!
