My nephew saw this at a garage sale. He thought I might be interested and gave me a call. PO said "It Ran When I Parked It" in the shed 4 years ago. couldn't get it to start now. he was an older frail gentleman and said the only reason he quit using it was it was too hard to steer and bought a ztr to mow with.
Put it in line in the shop with the other projects. Will let you know whats what as I get to it. Model number 1658 ser. 0201012. this is my first Bolens, It appears to be a pretty stout tractor. Rick
