This is the pulley that I need. The smaller is about 3 1/2" and the larger is 7 1/4" ish. It didn't come with the Power Ho, it came with the sickle or reel mower attachment.

 Nate, what size shaft does the pulley fit on? 3/4?  It looks similat to the pulley thats on an 8r6. Could you modify one of those to work? There is a pulley on ebay right now that looks similar. Item #121087710078

Yeah its a 3/4" shaft. The one on ebay is for the newer Power Hos, but would work. With it beening adjustable it would be nice to slow the tractor down for some things. The only problem I would have with it is its not original to the model of tractor. Thats why I trying to keep my eyes open for a chunk of aluminum big enough to make one.

Its been quite awhile since I've worked the Power Ho but I'm one step closer today. Got the wheels painted this mourning and I'm happy with the way they look. Now I just have to wait til the paint is cured enough to mount the tires. Also got the frame and some parts hanging in the booth, so maybe tonight some green paint.

 

I finally decided to make some time to get this thing done. I also set a dead line to have it up and running to take it to the show in LeSeuer in 2 weeks. It seems that if I done have a deadline toget something done it probably will take a loooooong time toget done.

You're right about deadlines. It's the same for me at work and my off hours. Set a deadline and I'll make it, don't, and I'll get to you sooner or later......

Nice looking walk behind. I enjoyed the pics.

I like the color you used on the wheels.  Good job of painting, nice and shiny.  What brand of paint did you use and what did they call that color?  Is that Prairie Gold #2?  They look great.

I used a PPG paint line called Delfleet Essential. Its a commercial single stage paint. The color is Komatsu Yellow and its the closest I've came up with. 

 

Mounted up the tires and what a PITA those little buggers are. Didn't put to many scratches in the rims getting the tires on.

Will you be putting calcium chloride into the tires?

No, If anything I'd be putting windshield washer fluid in them. But a 4.00 - 12 doesn't have much room in them for any type of fluid. That's way I have a couple sets of weights if I need them.

 Bolens paperwork I have says the 12A was manufactured 1942-1948, and used B&S or Clinton engines. (1947-48 appear to be B&S engines only.)

Got a little green done today... Finally. So tomorrow I'll get the wheels on it to take it home to put it back together.

Put the wheels on this mourning so I could wheel it outside to "bake" in the sun.  Nothing like mother nature to cure paint!
