Gilson info?

Recommended Posts

Howdy All, Was up at my buddies place on the side of a mountian in West Arlington Vermont last weekend for a little fun & relaxation. His late Dad bought a 14 hp Gillson lawn tractor (he called it his "Gilly") to keep the place looking pretty a long while back. It was my job to get the Gilly going and mow the place while my other buddies got the camp all set up. Put a fresh battery in and she fired right up and ran well! Got most of the camp mowed and when I put it away for the night I noticed the starter/generator belt was a bit loose. Next day I needed to mow the road and clean up some more so I decided to tighten the belt a bit. Worked again for most of my mowing and "bang!" the belt broke and fell off. We found another spare belt and two hours later with lots of fun with the drive shaft bolts we got it changed. Next time we go up there I want to give the Gilly a good check over for the various fluid levels and such. It's kinda like my 3212H but there are some differences. I wanted to get some pics of the Gilly and the model number but some beers got in my way and I forgot :I... Anyone know where I may find a service manual for this? :D Thanks, Rick

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
