I sold a guy a 12 hp B&S
engine and put it in a plastic MTD and he wanted it back before he had the money to pay for it. He also wanted me to do some carb work on a Husky 1053 so I told him that if he let me pick up the Bolens and signed a bill of sale on it I would deliver the MTD and he could pay me what was owed within 60 days and I would rip up the bill of sale. So for now I own the tractor and hope he doesn't come back for it.
I looked for a serial number plate on it and could only come up with one that has been partially removed. I down loaded the manual, thanks to a member taking the time to share it with the other members and to Bolens for not getting upset over it.
I am posting some photos and hopefully some members can help find the year and pass along any other good to know information.
