You going to call it Rudolph, Joseph? :D

 

Good call. After we went indoors to warm up we realised we should have put some ropes from the steering to the sleigh. Next time maybe.

I'm looking for a Belt sheid for a 1956 Bolens Ride a matic.  Part number # 1705901  Does anyone know where I can get one?   Thanks

 

Very hard to find but always worth touching base on GTT Bolens Forum. Might have to frabicate one ?

Yes. I talked to one gentleman about this and he said it would cost around $3,000. 00 to make the mold and produce them.   A little pricey for me.

Ive got a 50's ride a matic, a gold one with the square bonnet and one the same as yours. If you want to get in touch RE any issues we may be able to help each other out. Also I may have a flywheel if your struggling - leave it with me.

I believe the gold one are in the sixties and the green ones in the 50's.

That is one cool looking early Ride a Matic.

 

i read somewhere there is a fellow up in Canada who was frabicating belt guards for RAMs but which year I do not know. Again GTT could help.

Thanks for the information.
