I'm not sure if this info fits this situation, but often manufacturers will take the same casting and machine it differently for several applications.  Also, the casting pattern may be designed to be convertable to produce several castings, yet the "common" part of the pattern may have the part number. 

 

In any case, you can't always depend on the molded-in part number to be the correct part number for the finished (machined) part that would have been used in production and listed in the parts manuals.

that is kind of what i was thinking too. i'm still in need of one for my HT-23 so if you know of one let me know. wilberj hasn't responded yet so i'll see what happens.

I have seen that a few times on tube frame stuff.

Cast stuff often is one or two numbers off what Bolens used in their final partslist.

sounds like greg is going to help me out with a axle support. i should be tearing into this project very soon as i don't really want to keep using the tractor the way it is. thanks everyone for your help.

ok, finally got around to fixing the axle support. have everything tore apart but i cannot for the life of me get that darn roll pin out for the pto lever. that is the only way i can see the front support coming out as the pto set-up is keeping me from removing the axle support. i cannot get on the other side to drive it out and tried clamping onto it with a pair of vise grips and hitting it with a hammer to pull it out with no luck. is there another way to get that axle support out?

after a few choice words and the help of my neighbor we got it all done. the trickiest part was he spring tension for the pto and getting off that darn roll pin. actually it wasn't a roll pin it was a solid pin. what was strange is that the 1886 i picked up was a rust bucket and it came out way better than my ht23. all is better now and back mowing.
