Bolens garden tractor auxiliary hydraulic lift.
Posted November 27, 2010 - 02:34 PM
We were working on the tractors the last two days and I decided to pull the lift out that dad had got when he bought the Bolens 800 to see if I could get it mounted. I figured out that I must be missing a bracket that supports the hydro pump.
The hydro pump has a bracket on it with 4 slotted bolt holes obviously for the belt tension but we are missing the bracket that it bolts to. I shouldn't even say we are missing it as we may have it buried in a bucket of parts somewhere.
The other piece that I need to figure out is the control handle. I did figure out where the cylinder mounts to which is right in front of the seat at those four bolt holes. The pump and cylinder are in great shape and the cylinder even has the lift height measurement rod that is in good shape.

I have one concern though and that is whether the handle or control is not seized or if it needs the hydraulic pump to be running to be able to turn the handle because it won't budge.
We need to get a belt yet for it. Since it is Christmas not too many places open so we are going to go tomorrow and get a belt. Anyone happen to know what size belt off the top of their heads? We measured it and it looks like it is going to be 29" - 30" x 1/2".
This was a very productive vacation

I dont know the other specs though...
I would assume that the handle would move even if the pump was not running... but I cant say for sure because I never used one of those before

George wasn't happy until he tore the pump apart.The handle now works like it should.Everything seems to be free and working. We will get the belt tomorrow and see what happens.
