Finally had a chance to get the Power tiller out today. I put on some new tires and rebuilt the carb.
I just noticed I have the one tire facing in the wrong direction :hitting_self_roller: I always forget to check the tread pattern


These Decals have me puzzled.Normally the "Bolens" would be in all green like I have seen on other equipment in this time period. These look like the Letters were printed on clear with the yellow on the edges...I was originally thinking they just faded but what are the odds that it would happen on both decals so evenly?
What are your guys opinions?

Nice day to take the tiller for a stroll! Ain't no way I can help on those decals, though!

Interesting..... So I guess the insides of the letters were printed clear like I thought.
