Looks like you are doing a nice job on the Bolens. Welcome to GTtalk. I just want to make one suggestion and that would be to not post in all capital letters as it makes it a little harder to read and some take it as shouting.

Looks like a nice project there. Glad you were able to get the photographs loaded, they always add so much.

Wow you got it apart Fast!
Hope you don't take offense, but I have a few comments and questions below....

-Are you planning on buying new decals?, Is that white primer or is that the paint you are using?
I'm just asking because to make it correct the 1054 should have an off white, almost almond color for the white.

-It looks like you have a carburetor and an air cleaner from a briggs and stratton on there, do you plan on keeping it like that or finding a Zenith?

I'll post a picture below so you can see the correct color scheme:

Looking forward to seeing more :thumbs:

Good eyes, Brian!

I had no idea the B&S carb would even mate to the Wisconsin engine.
