I "bought" (partially bartered) this off of a neighbor this weekend. :smile1:

It's a Model C-105. The engine is STUCK! I have it soaking with Blaster right now. The tranny is also not wanting to go into 1st gear very easily, but I'll get into all that later. Enjoy these pics and I'll post more as I go along.
I picked up another one also, but you'll have to go to the Bolens forum to see those pics.

This one has a 10 HP K241AS Kohler like the one in my deere! Fortunately all 4 tires had air on this one. BTW Mouse pee is apparently worse than road salt for corrosiveness. I got one of the 4 bolts that hold the dust catcher onto the flywheel to break loose and broke my ONLY #3 Phillips bit trying to get the rest!
