old Montgomery Ward tiller

Posted by cjbathome nv (My Page) on

I have been given an old Montgomery Ward tiller Model No. GIL 1580J with a Briggs & Stratton engine Model No. 130202 Type 1672-02 Code 82120107. It has sat out in the weather for X number of years and needs some work. Does anyone have a source for a manual for the tiller and/or the engine? I am looking for the gas/oil mix ratio and the grease type for the gear/transmission box in particular.

Thank you in advance

cj, I doubt that it has a 2-cycle engine. Check and see if it doesn't have a crankcase for oil - if it does, then DO NOT mix oil in the gasoline. Most old Briggs engines use just plain 30 wt oil, typically about 16 - 18 oz. My father-in-law has a manual, so I'll try to remember to check if it says what to use in the gear box. By the way, the tiller was made by Gilson - check the yellow pages for a Gilson repair shop. I found one in Fort Worth last year, and they even had a parts listing for my F-I-L's old Monkey Wards/Gilson tiller!

A Briggs 130202 is a 5hp engine. Uses regular gas and holds about 20oz of oil. You can look up both manual and illustrated parts list on Briggs' website at http://www.briggsandstratton.com/

Lawnboy dealers should be able to order parts for you as well.

cj, there are several pages missing from the owners manual that I have access to, including the one with specs for gear box lubricant. If you don't get an answer from somebody else, I'd suggest a 140 wt fluid - But don't do it on my say-so. Maybe Fish will drop back by and answer that one.

My boyfriend just acquired an old montgomery ward rear tine, and having problems getting it to go in the reverse gear. Any quick tips would greatly help. (If he knew I was doing this..)

Rhonda
If the tiller has the rear belt drives, there could be a couple things worng. The belt maybe the wrong size or old and streched. The linkage could be out of adjustment. Make sure that the reverse belt has a twist like a "figure 8" in it so that it causes the drive pulley to go in the opposite direction.

Hi joe9212,

I am new, and read your message about old mont.ward tiller and I too have it since early 80's bought it brand new and only used among 12 bro. sis., yards when needed. when I retired I have been enjoying my gardenning and yard work the sudden the gear got stuck could not move. When I took the pin from the long rod, the gear pole fell into the gear housing. I took it to the small engine mech. was told just follow the manual and it easy and cheaper to do it my self since I have all the time rather paying him higher labor cost. So let me know your precedure about your manual and hope it will help to learn more about this tiller. Your help is much appreciated and await for your respons.

Thanks lot,

It has been a real work horse but this morning the 12.5 cu in, 5 hp Briggs & Stratton blew the head gasket. I have the tiller manual but unfortunately it has little info about the engine.

Look above your messages to "WELDER5797" who has a URL for Rustytiller. It's a Gilson and Montgomery Ward collector's site.

Or try the URL below and then go to "TECHNICAL" for the manuals:
