1964/5 Bolens 900

Recommended Posts

After finishing the last project I thought it was time for a bit of a rest but Joseph had other ideas. The new project is a 1964/5 Bolens 900 which has been in storage since 2004, which was before he was born.

 

As usual my role is one of cameraman. A quick introduction by Joseph aka Garden Tractor Boy

A quck update on the Bolens 900. This is going to be an interesting project as it looks like a previous owner has done some creative and mainly unhelpful repairs in the past

Initially we said we would focus on the engine of the Bolens 900 because we could not understand what was stopping the clutch from working. The aim being that a working engine would help diagnose the clutch issues.

We now have a better idea of the clutch issues so we have changed direction and are now investigating the clutch.

The drive shaft and clutch on the Bolens 900 were rebuilt and refitted but then we hit a big problem.

 

Already out of time, we continued to search for the solution

We had the chance for a little more progress on the 900 today, mainly aligning the steering and starting to look at the engine

A bit more progress on the 1964/5 Bolens 900. In this video we fit the new belt guide, battery tray and battery in preparation for the first test run.

 

Due to other commitments this is the last chance to fix any problems before RPT and we have booked the tractor into the show
