Hi, I just bought a g10 model 1055 for 20 bucks.  Has briggs engine.  Actually runs.  Came with snow plow.  Problem is it did not have the mower deck.  will any bolens driveshaft deck fit?  Im still scrambling to figure out how the deck actually hooks up and all.  All in all Im pretty stoked it runs after I bought a battery for it.    I did find a bolens deck at a mower salvage yard but the gear box has the splines pointing away from the deck and Im not sure that will work.  Im kinda guessing that I need a deck with the gear box mounted at rear of deck so that the drive shaft has to cross over the top of the deck and connect to the gear box at rear of deck.  close up pictures would be awesome.  Havnt found any yet.

  The only real concern is the gear noise it makes in 2nd and 3rd.  Is this normal?  Changed gear oil twice, which seemed to help some.

  Other issue is the locking hub pin has broke.  Only way to hold the locking pin in place behind the wheel is the previous owner used a hose clamp to keep the pin from popping out.

There several Bolens owners here that are famliar with your tractor, and there are manuals in the manual section that you may want to look at.  Good luck and I hope you can repair the problem.

Welcome

There were different mounting systems for the decks and it would be helpful if you posted a picture of your tractor so we can see what hardware, if any  may be installed on you tractor.

 

These transmissions do whine a bit in 3rd

Improper adjustments or hasty shifting may have worn your tranny which is why it is wining in second gear.

 

The hubs are generally repaired or broken on most tractors. I  just put a muffler clamp on to hold the pin in.
