hello i am going to nominate my 1975 bolens h14 i picked up from a scrap yard last fall ( tried to find the place and nearly got shot ) we found the scrap yard and were walking around and here is a tractor with grass and weeds growing out of the wheel (that tire did not hold air LOL) the closer i got i found it was a bolens and a hydro ! at that i asked the fellow what he would like and he said 75 dollars (like a seine from a wild wild west movie) i reached into my pocket and pulled out my wallet and payed the man.
after some time i got the tractor home and tryed to get it going .. with no luck would not run right back fired it was bad after rebuilding the carb i forgot to tighten the throttle plate bolts and then then engine was toast .. uh oh. i worked a few deals and manged to get a briggs and stratton twin that i re-powered the tractor with. now after some more time i have installed power-steering (that project can be found on the bolens forum) and now i am installing aux hydraulics. I am 17 and autistic and have learned Alot from this project and this Forum I am greatly thankful for this forum and the people on it.
Cheers
Tyler

Wow, Nato77, those are some HUGE pumpkins! That must have been a nice harvest. You grow those yourself? Looks like you used a bit too much Miracle Grow on them, lol!! Nice use of your Power-Ho too to drag them out of your garden!

Lots and lots of manure, been putting on a couple of pickup loads in the spring for the last few years. Planted way to many big pumpkin seeds this year, next year I'm just going to do a couple of them and plant more smaller ones. I'm very happy with what I got this year being it's been very dry the last few months.

You should be happy. You got some awesome pumpkins there! I think I am going to try my hand at pumpkins next year. Gonna try to grow some of those jack o lantern size pumpkins (maybe 10-20 pounds). Maybe some gourds too.

No, havn't got the chance yet to get the machine fully fixed yet.

Half way through the transmission there is a key way that must have sheared, and the trans will have to be fully taken apart to get to the key way. (maybe one of the winter projects this year)
