  1. Darkest hour

    Yes I think it is this coming Friday or maybe last Friday. Why's that?
  2. The 1254 is the first Bolens I ever bought and I owed it to the old girl to get her up and running. My mate, Daniel, offered his services to get her going. He made up a new loom a while back and thanks to Rick I bought a fuel tank off him and from Brian some belts and coil. Another contact in the States, Alain, sourced me a set of stators. I am really chuffed to hear that it is up and running, albiet briefly. Daniel informed me that "The head gasket is leaking oil out and over the exhaust manifold, i suppose this is good and bad, good that the oil is circulating the engine, but possible the rings are gone for there to be oil above the piston? The carb isn't leaking on the joint as bad but i have been turning the fuel tap off so it may do if left long enough, it is dribbling past the float, and from the adjustment screw, but nothing to loose sleep over."
  3. Bolens Husky tractor

    I need to,get this one up and running as it is my first Bolens
  4. Bolens Husky tractor

    Evening all, just a question about Bolens Husky tractors. How good are these and how easy is it to get parts from the UK? Are they in the same stable as the Work Horse? Just curious. does anyone here have one? Andrew
  5. more scrap

    Nice haul! I like your vintage lorry; what make is it?
  6. Bolens 1050 Seat Cover

    A while back I messaged Greg aka stiemmy if I could buy his old seat cover as he bought a new one off 29 Chev.from the Bolens Forum. Greg said I could have it free if I paid for the postage. On it arrival I gave the seat a deep clean to remove the years of accumulated grime. I am very happy with the results of the patina on the seat as this will be a working tractor. Anyhow I got around to putting the seat cover onto my 1050 today. I think it looks miles better than the old black one. My thanks to Greg for helping out a fellow Bolens owner. Here are some photos of before and after taken from my phone...
  7. Bolens 600 having a light work out

    I had a few hours today so I popped up to the yard I share with a tree surgeon. I thought I would try and level out all the wood chippings & ruts with my 600 & chain drag mat. I was pleasantly surprised by the results as we had a heavy downpour last night and the ruts were caused by my mate's Land Rover and wood chipper. I got the drag chain mat off The Showman back in November. It did a tidy job.Photos taken on my mobile and I hope to attach a video of it working if I can work how to download it from my phone!
  8. Bolens 600 having a light work out

    Hopefully a mod will post them up properly! Zig Zag Harrow is an appropriate name for it couldn't remember the correct name for it Norm. I am really pleased that Chris hoodwinked me to buy it off him a few months ago. A really nice bit of practical kit
  9. One of the first Westwood Gazelles

    There's an old rusty Westwood kept outside under a bedraggled tarpaulin that starts on the button according to the gardener who works next door to my customer. I will try to take a photo of it in situ next time I am there. What amazes me is that there is plenty of undercover storage for it to be stored....
  10. Happy New Year.

    Happy Nrw Year to all.
  11. Mayfield snowplough

    Great to see that it's doing a good job by the look of it. How easy was it to manoeuvre it in the snow?
  12. I Need This truck

    Cool truck.

    Wishing you all a great Christmas Festive Break to all the regular forum users. Roll on RPT and TF 2018 !
  14. Replenishing the stock.

    Nice haul of logs you got there Norm
  15. Big Bit of winter fun

    Was this today?
  16. Big Bit of winter fun

    Good to see the Gutbrod being used in the snow. Be interested to see how much traction there would be if the snow is deeper.
  17. HH winter get together

    Paul I still got my lovely '68 Morris van and I did have a pick up too but sold that to buy a Hilux which I then sold to buy a new van... I have always love the LCVs myself and parts are fairly easy to get hold of. I highly recommend them and prices are fairly reasonable..... Here's my van....
  18. HH winter get together

    Nice line up of classics and good to see the Morris LCVs too. Unusual to see 3 vans and a pickup too in one place.
  19. 1947 Chrysler Windsor

    That's a cool looking beast.
  20. Been a bit wet today.

    Not been too bad down here in Devon but heavy rain is forecasted tonight....... Hope the water will subside soon.
