Hello. Just got another one of my bolens power hoes running. This one took some wrenching. It has been setting out back of the shop for 2 years due to a bad carb on a Clinton. I dug it out and began my search for a carb. Had 3 to choose from. Picked the best two first. Took completely apart and thought I would make one good out of two. With new gasket and needle and seat installed put it on engine. Turned on the fuel. No leaks until after two pulls the poured out vent. took off and apart again checked did not se a problem. Put back on leak. That's it get the junker carb and flush with carb cleaner blew out the rust in venturi and installed . no leaks. Started engine adjusted a little and off and running. Decided to see if it would pull. Grabed the old plow and to the garden we whent. Could not believe this little beast. I had to hold the plow as to not go to deep. No fluid in tires and it was rolling a good furrow. Know to find a few missing parts for the kick stand and it will be ready for show season until I get time to redo properly. here are a few pictures ofmy 12ba02 power hoe with a Clinton engine. I think these things are beginning to breed around here. Got three different power hoes and a super versa matic. These Bolens aretaking over.DSC02503.JPG DSC02504.JPG

I'm a little jealous, only thing we can plow around here is snow right now. You have any other attachments for it?

Looks like a fun time :thumbs:

 

These walkbehinds are addicting! Heck, Bolens in general are addicting! :D

 

I plowed for the first time with mine last fall and had it set at mid throttle and it went right through the soil effortlessly!

If you look in scrap yard in the classified section you will see the resting place for many parts tractors which need to find homes before being hauled to the scrap.
