Thanks Ol'buzzard, I'm very happy to learn that my hunch was a good one. Especially sice its the first time i ever looked at a tractor., being a city guy and all.

Got the body back from paint and I just couldnt wait to show off! lol

Now i have to confess that today ive broken a steering link on the front RH wheel :(
I was trying to get the front end off to figure out the PTO problem and CRACK!!! Dunno where ill get another to replace it. I'll look to have it welded tomorow ( I dont have anything to weld casting).

I was wondering: what the heck is this and what does it do?

Im also looking to find adrawing or pictures of how the front end parts that move the binder pulley that engages the pto works and how it is assembled. Because mine dont work and I think its been modified so i need to figure out what is wrong and fix it or replace it.

Thanks for all the nice comments mates, this is a nice forum, im happy i found you guys.

That's a HILLER. Used to prepare a seed bed for things like potatoes, etc.

That one mounts on a 3-pt hitch.

From the looks of the dash it appears to be a 1886-01. The PTO belts alwasy on could be because they installed the wrong belts or it needs to be adjusted which can be done turning the linkage out or in just behide the dash that is hooked to the lever. It will be hard to get to though. Also are the PTO belts on correct? As for parts not sure what canada side has we have alot of new and used parts for the bolens if you need them.

And welcome to the site and enjoy the new toy.

Dont know for sure if belt size are right and if theyre mounted on correctly. When I push the lever down the mecanism in the front end barely moves, and it looks to me as if it moves in the wrong direction!! I really need some help figuring out how this thing is assembled and how its supposed to work.

Loooking at the pic the front mecanism in the front that attaches to the pto pulley is flipped upside down and there is a retune spring that helps pulls the idler pully from the belts that is missing.I will try to upload a pic sometime today to show you hgow it should look.

Looking foward to seeing how it is normally because mine has me stumped. Thanks a lot, You're a big help ;)

Just got a call from the post office they received my stickers from 'Maple Hunter' cant wait to see if they match correctly.
I know for sure the sticker for the dashboard is not the right one but all the others seemed ok.
