Yet Another Mongomery Wards Rototiller
I too have recently acquired a Montgomery Wards Rototiller (front tine). It is Model Number GIL 1580 F. For the past 10 hours I have been on the internet trying to find an owner's manual for it. I have also been searching for the B&S number and still can't find it.
It doesn't seem to want to start, but I also noticed that there is only 1 belt (front) on the pulleys. It looks to have been well taken care of but we don't know how long it has been idle. The carb is getting fuel, so spark plug is next on the check list. Would anyone happen to know what B&S engine was used on this model so I can get the parts list for it? It's a 5hp vert. and the front of it says "Dependable Power Plus".
Any help at all would be appreciated. Thank you.
