I just bought a gilson garden tractor with a snow blower and the hard top cab cover on it for $450.It seems to slip in high when its cold low seems to work fine. Also when i put it on fast it goes by its self. Any info on this would be very helpful. thanks

Hi Mcrey. Welcome to the 'world' of Gilson and Montgomery Ward. Sounds like you got a pretty decent package there, especially with the cab.
To start, I believe that the machine info is on the right hand side, just above the foot rest, on the support for the gas tank and instrument panel. Should be on a plate. The engine info could be in a couple places, depending on the engine manufactrurer. My Briggs & Stratton info is engraved in the fan shroud, left side, under the air filter, just below the carb.
If you have the machine info, there is a listing in the Gilson Collectors forum on www.yahoogroups that will help determine the machine year. There are also alot of pic in their files. On the B&S website, the motor info can be used to get approximate age, plus any info they have on that engine, including printable books. The GilsonCollectors forum has a bunch of printable booklets, too.
