Hey folks, wondering if some of you gilson wards gurus can help me out. I have a 76ish gilson gear 16, and a 1976 montgomery ward 16. I found a tiller from an early seventies s series. Im going to purchase it either way, but what I'm wondering is if the tiller attachment will fit with no modifications. From what ive seen so far in pics, the s series and the later ones like I have both look like the chassis and drivetrain are the same.

As far as I know, the tiller assembly is basically the same.  The difference lies in the PTO shaft for the tiller, I believe the later tractors use a longer PTO shaft than the early tractors.

So I'll be lengthening the pto shaft. Is the difference in the hitch that sticks out further on the later ones? Otherwise the frame and wheelbase looks the same.

I believe the receiver on the tractor is the difference.  The receiver on the S series is tucked under but the later Gilson has it sticking out the back farther.

That's what I thought. Thanks a lot. And I also appreciate you helping me out with a sleeve hitch.
