Bolens1000:

 

Would a 1256 transmission work?

I found this one for $300

1050 I found for parts

$300

1220 for parts only

$300 or any of these, he has same area code that I do  

 

Appears he has quite alot of stuff, here? :angel:  :deadhorse:

1256 Is Hydrostatic (Entirely Different system)

1050 ( Actually appears to be an 850 in the photo) This has the 3 Speed Tranny (Different cluster gear than your 1254)

1220 (Tranny Will interchange)

 

If you get any of them I wouldnt pay too much they all look to be in pretty rough shape.... At $300 ea they are way over priced for their condition

Thanks for sharing. I guess his prices are reasonable if 300 is a default # or he just repeatedly pasted that price on everything and the actual individual prices are negotiable... :D

Rando,

 

I'm assuming that the 44001 in your name is your Zip code?  If so, you are just a couple of miles North of me, as I'm in Oberlin.

 

I've dealt with the guy down in Ashland, and he's reasonable, and can be negotiated with.

 

Rick Show (one of our sponsors) is just over the state line from Youngstown, so that would be a pretty short trip as well.

 

BHTS, another of our sponsors is in St. Paris OH, which is NE of Dayton, but not too bad a drive from our area.

 

I have dealt with both of the above gentlemen, and they are great guys with good prices on their parts.

I live in Ohio, the 44001 is old handle I guess, you can say once was a birthday, and the 00 was my daughter year for her, and (one) is for an ending I guess? I appreciate meeting new people or chat with you. I in the middle of Ohio between Mansfield, Columbus.

You would be pretty close to BHTS in St Paris then.

 

It would definately be worth getting in touch with him.

bhts is Bob's Lawn and Garden.  Here's a link to the sub forum for him:

 

http://gardentractor...arden-tractors/

 

Rick Show (blackjackjakexxix) also has a sub forum as well:

 

http://gardentractor...-tractor-parts/

 

Both have a wide assortment of new and used Bolens parts, and are well regarded on this forum.

Hi, Take a look at the file I have attached and see if it looks like what you have. This was the second attempt at solid state ignition for Wiscoignition_service2.png nscin. Watch the wiring because it swaps the + and - on the ignition coil from the older electronic ignition. (older versions have the + side of the coil to the +12volts from the ignition switch and the - side goes to the SS module. This newer version grounds the - side of the ignition coil to ground and the SS module red wire hooks to the + side of the coil. Be careful because the ignition switches are not the same! The older version uses the switch to provide +12 volts to the + side of the coil (coil type ignition). The newer version uses the switch to provide a ground to the SS module to kill the spark (magneto style) and in some cases Bolens dealers added an additional kill switch to provide the ground. I came up with a circuit that allows the use of the original switch with a small relay to provide the ground
