1971 Mongomery Wards Hydrostatic 14hp Garden tractor(made by Gilson)
2 years ago I dragged this out with the Sears SS12.(see video " Sears
pulling the Montgomery Wards tractor out of the weeds") I have been
messing with it finally and got it going. This tractor was bought new by
my Grandpa in 1971. In about 1985 it was the first thing I ever drove at
around 5yrs old. My Dad got it, rebuilt the motor. He used it for a while
then the tie rod broke and it sat since about 1996. Its little sore on the
eyes but I think I have most of the bugs worked out of it now. Still needs
starter solenoid and battery.
Near the end I idled it down. Sure sounds goofy in the video. Doesn't
really sound like that.
Sears Suburban Guys Meet-Up
Had a couple guys from the tractor forum come over. Edc, willtractors101,
and GT_80 all came over and brought tractors. I had my SS15 and SS/16, and
Ed brought his RARE GT/18 hydro and one of his SS/16's. Good times.
1970 Sears Suburban lawn tractor, 12HP Tecumseh
We bought this 1970 Sears Suburban tractor a few weeks ago, but never got
around to doing anything with it. The guy we bought it from didn't have it
that long and had no idea if it ran or not. After this video I got it
running better. I found the gas tank had water in it too, and I also fixed
the electrical. I swear, these old tractors are so much better built and
nicer to drive then any one sold now.
