Ford Snowthrower

Hi Guys, Can someone help me out?? I have a gentleman with a "Ford" walk behind snowblower with gears stripped in the auger drive. It's a ST524, with a 5 H.P. Briggs on it. Chassis Model # 09GN5239, Serial #0213C1 532. Does anyone know who made this machine for Ford?? It has the Blue Oval all over it!! Yes it is a 2 stage machine. Thanks, Roger.

Gilson

This unit was manufactured by Gilson, now part of Toro. I am not sure if any parts are still available for this unit. Check with a Toro Dealer and maybe they can still get what you need for it.

A good while ago I ran across a website of a collector of vintage Gilson equipment somewhere in the midwest U.S., I believe, and he could be helpful perhaps. Bear with me and i'll attempt to find this site and pass it along.
