In my quest to restore a 1050, I may end up with parts to sell. Went and looked at two more tractors yesterday. If I get them I figure maybe between the three of them I can get one decent one going. All three tractors are complete so I'll have some parts to sell when I'm finished. Thought I'd offer them up here before going to ebay with them. Anyone interested?

I would think it's a Zenith carb. As soon as I have the other two tractors in my possession I will let you know. (and post pics)

Anyone know if there's any forum members in Missouri? Specifically, SW MO? That's where I'm at and it seems that most everyone else is on PA, OH, or IN. Haha.

I am in Ballwin, 20 miles outside St Louis. Bolens stuff is harder to find locally but site sponsors or ebay works for the little stuff.

I should be picking up a 1050 in a week or two. Good uck with yours.

Got them home without incident. Now, to get the free wheeling pin unstuck on the one that doesn't run so I stop making ruts in my yard by dragging it with the one that does.

Here's a couple of pics of the tractors I brought home this weekend. I just went from zero lawn tractors to three Bolens 1050s in a matter of weeks. It's a disease...

Thanks for the pictures.
The one with the yellow seat looks to be a 1969 and the one on the right looks to be a 1967-1968

Doc, I haven't run the numbers yet but presume you're right. How do you tell them apart? I'm interested to know the differences between the model years. My third 1050 which isn't pictured is a 1966 (based on the fact that it has the TR-10D as opposed to the TRA-10D found in all the other years of 1050-- my Bolens serial number is worn off).

There's basically 3 major things you look for to tell what model you have

1) Type and year of engine

2) What kind of steering wheel the tractor has (The 66' was white and didnt have side grips) (The 67-68 used the hand grips on the wheel) (The 1969 models often had a black steering wheel)

3) If the white paint is all original you can tell the difference between a 66 and 69 by shade of white paint that was used. The 1969 had a almond color while the 66' was more of a beige white
