Robbed my honey money bank of 500 bucks an went and got the Wards Loader. From some reading I did on google they are built by Johnson.First I had to find my trailer

They flushed the oil, and had it turning over, has compression, no spark, not sure if he checked the points or not, said he was planning on pulling the flywheel next. Drive shaft is unhooked and all in all in need of lots of TLC. But, the loader is straight.

Great grab Marty! I always thought those Johnson's lookded pretty stout for their GT application. I'm not sure I see the 'rough' in the pictures though. That's a clean setup! Even the Monkey Ward looks good.

If this Wards will run I will likely leave the loader on it as it's a hydro. Only Simplicity I have that's a working hydro is my 3314, it mows the yard. Plus, I may hack it enough to make a foot control hydro since I was only born with 2 arms.

Who built the Simplicity Loader? Know I knew once.

Congrats Marty!!! That loader looks VERY heavy duty, Even has large bucket tilt cylinders.

I too would leave it on that tractor...saves you ALOT of fab & fit work. Cant wait to see it in action...

Your gonna love having it around the property. you'll find dozens of uses for it

PS...$500 is a steal dOd

Nice Marty! You won't be sorry if you get the tractor up and running, I had one like it only gear drive with variable, it was a tough machine, built by Gilson. I pounded mine hard and it just kept going.

Have fun!

Hope you find that the Wards/Gilson hydro works well for you. I parted out an earlier model Gilson because the hydro had failed, and it was a sealed unit that you couldn't even change the fluid in...

Marty, I am with you. I would get the tractor running and use it as is. If the tractor is not worth fixing up, then change the loader to a Simplicity and junk the tractor.
