Always liked those tractors. Friend of mine has his, childhood tractor & still runs.

Good luck on the reassembly. Make sure you study the picture on the lid of the box before you put the puzzle together.

Look at it this way.... you're a day ahead of schedule with the resto having it come to you in pieces. :D

Good luck putting it back together. Looking forward to see it up and running again.

Some assembly required! Maybe one of the Bolens guys will come up with the list of tools needed.

I put it mostly back together last night. Having another 58 to look at helps with the assembly process. I only gave $100 for it. The guy bought it from the original owner, took it apart and then left it in pieces. I had made a deal with him 6 months ago to buy it but when it came down to meeting up he never responded so I left it alone but the other night I sent him an email asking if he still had it and you know what happened from there. I plan on restoring my other ram first but I don't see this one being done anytime soon. I like them in their natural patina. But let's just get it running first.
