Looks like a solid front axle under there. I can't say what's wrong, as I haven't a clue of what's right on this!

Besides the idler and pulley everything else looks great.

 

If your going to replace the broken pulley you can find one from the following models, 600,650,750 Part number- 1714893

 

The newer G Series tractors (G10 G12 etc.) may work as well but used a different part number 1731340 , Not sure what the difference is between  a 1714893 and the 1731340

Kenny, None of us do, if it's different from the Bolens 600.

Thanks for the info Brian. :thumbs:

 

Does the front axle look the same as the one on the 600?

Interesting, Looks like the cast iron center axle support is different as well and has a lip added on the end to attach the hood..

I got more tore down today between fixing stuff for our plant.

 

 

The Clutch/Brake rod and PTO Shaft came out of the Steering Tower with little effort.

2013-02-06_14-22-16_689.jpg 2013-02-06_14-22-25_516.jpg 2013-02-06_14-22-49_24.jpg

 

The PTO Handle/Detent Spring came off by driving out the Spring Roll pin. The main PTO shaft was frozen solid in the PTO handle base and needed help from a Rose Bud on the Torch to come apart. I guess this is why someone cut the PTO Idler off the end of the shaft.

2013-02-06_14-37-51_625.jpg 2013-02-06_14-38-05_332.jpg 2013-02-06_14-42-35_958.jpg 2013-02-06_14-47-11_725.jpg 2013-02-06_14-47-38_347.jpg

 

Maybe this is a Factory setup, but I doubt it.

2013-02-06_15-28-18_969.jpg

 

The Steering wheel is seized to the Steering Shaft, so I took off the Pinion Gear off the other end to remove the shaft, it also took a little heat to get the Spring Roll Pin to move..

2013-02-06_14-23-40_796.jpg

 

How is the Steering Wheel kept on the shaft, there is no set screw to hold it on. I can't tell, but I wonder if there is supposed to be a cap bolt in the end of the shaft?

2013-02-06_14-23-57_86.jpg

 

Removed the Bushing and holder to inspect the bushing.

2013-02-06_14-27-00_958.jpg

 

The Steering Pinion Gear looks pretty good, with some wear.

Brian, I don't know anything about the Bolens either. All I can say is it looks great to me. I do believe that steering wheel has grown onto the shaft! Good luck with that!

Good thing is Kenny, I can give it some heat before worrying about melting the covering, steel spokes!!

Sure looks like there would have been a bolt holding the wheel on.

Is that just dirt, packed into the hole?

Will, It was full of rust and dirt and had been partially painted over. :wallbanging:

Looks like your making good progress Brian!

 

The Bolt holding the spring is not original :D

 

 

Bolens Used a chrome Cap that had a bolt in the center to hold the wheel on.
