I bought an 18 HP Gilson tractor W/ 4speed manual transaxle back in the early '90s.

It has small square headlights. I have not seen any PIX of Gilsons W/square headlights.

It wasn't very old when I bought it. Does anyone have any idea when the Gilsons W/square headlights were manufactured?

It is in fair condition. I repowerd it W/a full pressure 18HP Briggs when the original engine lost an exhaust valve seat. It could be retored, but one of the headlights got broken. Is there a source for those square headlights?
