I managed to work out a deal for these NOS parts from a former Bolens dealer.
The best ones I got were a NOS Bronze reverse disc& inner Flange. A good used front Grille, and the best find of the day was a NOS Brake petal pad for the Bolens Green brier!!!!!!! :dancingbanana: Now the restoration can be complete!!!!


(Pics coming)

I'm just betting your garage looks like a NOS Bolens museum. :)

Great finds Doc, glad you got them. :thumbs:

Wow!

It's been so long since I saw those crutch tips on a PTO shaft, I forgot about them.

Nice find, Brian!

Most of it is the ST/ Eliminator stuff :(
He's got more tubeframe stuff but he wants big bucks for it.

Yeah, I was surprised to even find them! I guess these can go on my Restored tractors :D

Its getting there :D
I've accumulated so many NOS parts over the last few years that I had to make an online inventory sheet and put parts in bin boxes so I can find everything :blush2:

Would anyone know what the green bracket and rod are for? I had no idea what they went on when I bought them but since they "looked old" I just had to have them :D
I've looked through the walk behind , tiller and ride-a-matic manuals and have not found a part number that matches.

Bracket 1708717
Rod 1706497
