I have finally started to restore my Mont.-Wards Squire 6 built by Bolens. There isn't very much info on these tractors, but with Y'all help I think it will turn out nice. From what I can find out, these where built as a filler between the Sim. built Squire Gt's and Gilson building GT's for M/W during 1963, I think.
Here are a few pictures of it as it looked when i got it.
I started tearing it down today and investigating the decals, see if I could make out anything. I sanded down the area where the decals should be and found this. "Squire 6"
I got the tower off and took a look at the dash under the plate that someone riveted on the dash. I'm going to have to do some welding to fill in those holes in the dash, I don't know what was mounted there, but I doubt that it had 2 gages since it's a recoil start.
Got some of the tins off. Didn't realize that the trans was sealed with tunnel tins. Gearbox looks pretty bad and the gear oil is low and very thick. axles will have to come out and get new seals and bearings.
The PTO is missing and the engagement lever has been cut along with the PTO idler. The mounting plate for the PTO shaft look good.
I am also missing the mechanical lift lever and trying to figure out what else is missing from that.
And I don't think this is the right Idler pulley for the clutch, it's 2 bearings on the shaft with no pulley at all.
