as far as gear box problems, my bottom seal leaks , so i completely fill the box with corn head grease, i check it two times a year and fill as needed , been doing that on that mower for about 8 years now and no problems at all

Thank you gmcdeadhead
I love corn head grease and have it in some
gear boxes here too. I suppose to much horse power is the enemy of old gear boxes. I want to set mine up
for a hydraulic cylinder since the adjusting crank is missing. Thanks again
Larry

Larry I like the idea of using a hydraulic cylinder to adjust the height. I would like to see pictures of how you did it.

I haven't gotten my Gyramor home from the consignment yard yet but looking at it I plan to
revise the brackets that the crank adjustment used
to mount the cylinder. On yours perhaps you could fit
a cylinder where the turn buckle is now even if you
had to change the brackets a little bit. I really want to have the convenience of the cylinder to raise and lower
as conditions change while mowing. I am really looking forward to using the cutter when the time comes. Good luck and keep us posted as you move along.

levibridge, if your gonna do any tall heavy thick brush cutting , keep an eye on the right wheel inner wheel bearing, the one thats on the backside where all the grass is gonna exit, tall grass gets twisted up on the shaft and inside the bearing grease seal and destroys the bearings on that side , i had to replace mine once every two years , i added hang down chains to my mower and it stopped it to some degree , what you need is a full guard on the back .

Very nice looking Gyramor. IPTO on 50 is very similar to 520 except for control linkage

Good idea on the trailer jack. Definitely something I'll put on mine.

If your 520 has IPTO there is no need for an ORC but if trans driven pto then an ORC is needed. S

With IPTO slow engine rpms to idle speed before shutting pto off so Gyramor blade speed is slower to help preserve life of pto brake lining & you should be fine.

Thanks for clearing it up. It's actually a 50 not a 520.

If you go to the John Deere Ag Technical store you can down load a free copy of the Operators manual # OMW21322 for the 205 Gyramor.

Here is a link to the store. https://techpubs.deere.com/

Click on the Equipment Publications box to go to the search page.

Click on the Model # box and select Part #/Keywords.

Enter OMW21322 in the search box and click the search icon.

The manual should come up with the word Download to the right of the title. Click on Download and you should have a pdf of the manual within a couple minutes, that you can save to your computer. You also have the option there to buy a book or CD as well.

Model 205 Gyramor was built from '65-'78. Be sure to free up slip clutch before putting to use.

Levibridge I am real interested in your 205 gyramor since I bought
a 127 gyramor yesterday. I think the 205 is a newer model
up from the 127. Mine is wheel carried and is what I wanted to pull with my 520. I wonder what others think about adding a over running clutch to the pto shaft on the tractor, I plan to do that
before using. Good luck with your 205.
Larry

Larry I plan on running a over-running clutch. Its a little insurance. The 205 is a pull behind.

Wow, I want to thank everyone for the pictures and valuable
tips. Sure is nice to see these vintage implements still
at work and looking to be in very good shape too. I rather doubt my 520 or your 50 would have enough power to do much harm
to the cutter like it could putting a 90 hp tractor ahead of the cutter. No one has mentioned about having gear box problems so they must he pretty trouble free? Thanks again.
Larry
