    Bolens parts

    Sam the hitch will not fit a TF Bolens. As for price I think you will be paying a lot more than you would want. Best not to advertise to everyone what you seen as everyone will know about it now.....

    Old Buzzard Passed Away

    Just to let you know that sadly Old Buzzard, aka Dave South, from Oberlin, Ohio passed away on Tuesday. He was a very knowledgeable guy on Bolens and will be sadly missed on GTT.

    Old Buzzard Passed Away

    Alain, yes GTT is slowly disintegrating and many have migrated over to Tractor Fanatics as well as social media like Face Book. A shame as I like the forum very much and made some good 'cyber' friends on there. I know of several enthusiasts who have sadly passed on in the last year in both the Bolens and Morris LCV world. Yes his wife died a few years earlier prompting Dave to sell up his collection and go on a tour of the USA in his motor caravan called HMS Rainmaker. He wrote some very amusing blogs about his adventures and catching up with old friends and fellow Bolens enthusiasts.

    Tyre change.

    Norm, I would be very interested in seeing how this experiment works as turf tyres are the de rigour for mowing.duties. The ag tyres will leave tread marks on the grass in my experience. Anyway be interested to see how you fare. Photos or no photos...

    Bolens 850

    I bought another Bolens, this time a 850 with a deck from Hampshire. Date yet to be verified but it from the mid to late 60s. I was particularly attracted to the go faster blue stripe on the bonnet. Also it's nice to have a different front decal of the Husky Man and not the Husky Dog on the front. The engine require some pistons and hopefully it will be up and running again. Thanks to Chris for collecting it and storing it.

    No Further Forward

    That's a lovely old mower you got there Chris. I got a small collection of vintage cylinder mowers. The 14" is the ideal size for a town garden. I have used these mowers in the past and it certainly keep you fit!

    1966 Bolens 850

    Scott, once you get that engine up and running it will motivate you to clean off all that rust and crud on the chassis. These Bolens are incredibly well made and you will be pleased with it.

    1966 Bolens 850

    I thought there was a v shape cut on the flywheel? Might want to post that photo on GTT? Have you jumped the solenoid?

    That looks like a very useful bit of kit. I regularly lubricate my mower cables when I service them. Makes all the difference.
