I have some Montgomery Wards, but don't have anything but the mower decks.
Is that a home made hitch in back for the plow? The reason i'm asking, is the bracket on tractor covers up the decal and looks to be stationary. They are good looking tractors when painted up like yours.
On the gear shift models I haven't seen any that has the variable speed pulley still on them, evidently that part didn't last very long.

The sleeve hitch came with the tractor for lifting and pulling different implements. Hal
PS: It also has a Wards part number.

If you're referring to the sleeve hitch it's connected to a bell crank that's connected to the hydraulic cylinder for raising and lowering implements. Hal

The plow is off a Viking walk behind tractor I bought in 1960. When I sold the Viking I kept the plow. To get the plow to work on the Wards tractor I had to make a template of the handles on the Viking. The hardest part was getting the bends the same. The bracket at the rear was copied off the Viking handles and the drawbar is
just of piece of metal bent 90 and welded to the plow bracket. When I first made it I used cap screws for mounting the bracket to the sleeve hitch. That was a pain so I made the bracket to fit the sleeve hitch using one pin.
The hydraulics on the tractor lifts and lowers the plow. Here are few pics of the plow bracket. You can still see the 4 tapped holes on the sleeve hitch. Hal

Thanks for the pictures of how you made the plow work. Around here where I live there wasn't any Montgomery Ward tractors that I knew of. I have some now and one that Gilson marketed as a Gilson, just painted different color than the Wards

Very nice looking tractor. Mine is identical. Well, I should say I plan on painting it as nice as you have yours as soon as I finish finding parts.

I do not have the mower attachment. If I can figure out or find the right parts for the tiller maybe I can contact you again regarding a mower attachment.

Thanks for your time and information.

Wow, you have the manual for the tiller. I do not have the original manual for my tractor but was able to locate a parts list manual for '74 models and newer. I also have a '74-77 Gilson service-maintenance manual. This one contains a section regarding the tiller attachment but not in a lot of detail. Would it be possible to get a copy of your manual somehow? I'd be willing to pay for all copy and shipping expenses if you're interested. I keep looking at your tractor all painted up so nice. One of these days I'll get there. Thanks again for your time. Dave (Wilton, California)

yes I thought the same thing at first as well. In fact the belt that was on there was to small. Replaced with correct size and still have the problem. Like you say, I think it's in the gear drive. I'm in Sacramento Ca. area. No of any guys that work on these older tractors that are inthis area? Thanks for help.
