Gilson tiller parts

Mike I have a Gilson compact tiller and the pulley for the drive belt is bad. Anyone know where I can get one?
Mike I guess I sould have said that the bad pulley is actually the belt tightening pulley, not the drive belt pullley.
chris i would take your model number and hit your local lawn-boy dealer. gilson was made by lawn-boy for awhile. you can post the above info and i can try and look up part number for you.
Mike I will try the lawn boy dealer. the model number on the tiller is 51095 44845. Please let me know if you find something.


chris hey mike heres some info from lawn-boy. the idler pulley p/n# is 33632 which supercedes to 740051, about 15.00. the belt p/n is 33622 which supercedes to 700860.
Mike Thanks Chris. I took your e-mail with me to the Lawn Boy dealer and got the exact pulley I needed. Thanks again for your help.
Greg Holenberg I have a Gilson Tiller model 51114 5HP that I got in a Zillion pieces. I am having trouble figuring out the belt arrangment for both Drive and reverse.

Does anyone have a diagram for these belts?


Mike I got the pulley and it works great. Now I found that the main gear that drives the tiller tines is badly worn and slipping. I took that main gearbox apart and located the gear. It looks to be brass and is about 1 7/8" in diameter with a 13/16 shaft size and is double keyed. Any way you could find me a part number for that?
Mike Chris, I took the serial number from my Gilson to a couple of Lawn Boy dealers in the area and they said that they have no way of cross referencing the numbers from Gilson to Lawnboy. My model number on my gilson is 51095 44845. I need the brass gear that drives the tines. It is driven by a worm gear which is driven by a belt from the motor. Can you help me with a number that I can take back to the dealer?

Thanks in advance

Tomorrow I will try to take photos of the screen at a friends shop. My scanner does not do negitives to my dismay.

Dennis I am looking for replacement tines for a gilson rear tine tiller anybody help or tell me where to find any I found some a a local hardware but not ready to pay 300.00 for just tines
Max Plattner David,
It is funny that you are looking for a pully system for a 1580G as I am too. What I have found out is maybe like you they do not make the part anymore and you have to find one that is being parted out. I have finaly gone to the extreme to have our local machine shop make me one. It's not done yet but it will cost me $40.00. The tiller is in such good shape that I though it was worth that. I have found a guy that has a 1575C that he is parting out but do not know at this time if the pully system is the same. Thats how I ran into your ad while trying to find something out on this tiller. Feel free to contact me if I can help further. Or maybe by now you have found something to fix yours and I would be interested to hear how you did.

Max Plattner Not sure if this helps but I have a model 1580G and I have a breakdown. Let me know if this helps.
Rollie My friend has a Gilson S 14 garden tractor with a mouinted tiller, and the chain drive gear and shaft are bad on it. anybody know where to find parts for it?
Durwood I'm in the middle of this quest - but have a front tine tiller that I had to replace the large brass drive gear on (Montgomery Ward made by Gilson). I bought new at that time but later found a Gilson snow blower drive that was exactly the same. The gear and shaft gases with bushings fit also (basically everything in the the drive except the shafts that the tines).

I just bought a rear tine tiller and have the same problem as other - tines and shaft bearings needed.

Richard Rose I'm looking for a replacement Engine Speed control for a Gilson Tine Tiller RT5S Model 51183A. The part # is 218976. Would anyone have any idea where I can find one ?

Vernon Troxel I have a real old tiller built by Tiller Manufacturer at P. O. Box 2787 Commercial Street Station Springfield Missouri 65803. The drive belt has stretched beyond usefulness. Is there a way, other than removing the engine, to remove the old belt and replace it with a new belt? I am 80 YO. My dad bought the tiller. Thanks.
Luke I am trying (unsuccessfully so far) to replace teh choke cable on my Gilson Model 10-343-01/Serial 663541 front tine tiller. I am trying a universal choke cable, but it doesn't do a very good job of opening/closing the carb. Is there a special part available just for this that would make my repair job easier?

Dave-Alaska Gilson Brothers was purchased by Lawn-Boy, who in turn as purchased by TORO Company, and operates as a separtate division. I located another source of PDF manuals at:
He has a list of manuals available for free download. Give it a try.

Drive belts, see these site: (drive belts .... all manufacturers) (belts again)

Good Luck

Don This appears to be the right forum. Tough one here, I think! Have had my grandfathers '72 Monkey Wards/Gilson for 20 years. Have replaced the bearings in the main drive pulley several times but this last time not soon enough as it is now all chewed up in the bearing seats. Welded up a new shaft to carry it, but...Of course I can bore it larger but where can I find a replacement part. Have plow, disc, mower, snow thrower with all working, if I can replace the double V pulley.

Re: Gilson tiller parts

Amazing! Toro has my Western Auto-Wizard-Gilson model GIS 2120 A38 rear tine tiller listed in their database. The phone number that was listed above by Ray was so very helpful, thanks Ray! The number for Toro again is 1-800-348-2424 So anyone with parts questions for Western Auto, Wizard, Montgomery Ward, Gilson tillers give them a call, and they will send a parts manual free of charge.

rick i'm working on a gilson 245 tiller, i'm sorry to say, parts are impossible to find. took the gearing apart, the brass gear will cost a little over $200 to make, so is the tiller realy worth rebuilding?? shaft is no big deal to make and the to brass bushings too. but the gear is too costly. unless someone has a handle on the gear, i do have a chassi and tines!
mike Looking for Gilson pulley #702596 and #200164, both are for Model #51134 45917 rear tine unit, late 70"s?

Both pulleys are worn down in belt groove, but the machine is a love affair with me so want to keep it running.
