If you have a picture of the LK that would help identify the possible model and year.
If you need 4 gears you may be better off looking for a good used gear box off another LK as you will pay an arm and a leg to buy those gears separately.

Looks like Doc is on your gear box.

I can not remember if Bolens actually made their own LK transmission, or if it was sourced from an outside supplier.
Foote and Peerless (a division of Tecumseh) were two major suppliers of gearboxes/transmissions for the industry at that time.
The Bolens gearbox has some parts similar in appearance to some parts that were used in Foote or Peerless transmissions, so it may be that your transmission was manufactured by one of them.
If you can get to a long-time equipment dealer, they may recognize it. ....You may be able to find that same gearbox, or one using the same internal gears, on a different brand of equipment. .....If there is an equipment "junkyard" near you, you may get lucky and find what you need.
