I hear you there.

 

How many G11s popped up in the past 2 years?O.B. has 3,Brad (nascar3244888) has 2,I have 1 and I know of 2 more.

 

I wish it wasn't rare because I would like to find a PTO pulley,PTO brake/belt guard and a few other parts for it but you just can't find stuff like that.By the way O.B. the G11s ARE beasts lol.I just put a set of rings and valve guides in her.She's got alot more power than I thought it would and super easy on fuel.

 

 

Got a photo of what the pto looks like?

At first glance if it's just by itself, it look like it's just the 'normal' 2-belt PTO.  However, one groove is much higher. That's for the brake.

 

Here's a pic of the sheave and the brake band:

The Later G14's also used this style PTO

I think it may have been due to some new safety regulations in the late 70's.

Yeah, it was a Federal Regulation in 1978.

 

That's the only year that the G11 was made, and the last year for the G14.

 

Those are the only two Bolens tube frames that has that PTO brake.

Do you have any paper work on that?

I've been looking into that.

It appears that it was done in response to PENDING federal regulations.

As near as I can find out so far, the Reg. seems to have been approved in 1979, and was to take effect in 1982.
 
Here's a page from The Montreal Gazette Jun 1, 1978 discussing possible Canadian regulations. According to them the US CPSC had already been working for 5 years on the regulations, and that Canada was going to wait until they saw what the US was going to do before enacting their own.

http://news.google.c...&pg=2253,186494
 
Here's another newspaper article from 1975 discussing upcoming regulations:

http://news.google.c...&pg=778,2278893

It appears that Bolens, and most likely all of the other manufacturers were trying to be 'ahead of the regulations' and wanted to be compliant when they were finally enacted.

Now, does THAT satisfy all of the nitpickers?

If not I guess I can find some more articles.

The HT20,HT20D and HT23 had the pto brake. The HT20 came out towards the end and depending on what manual you have it will or will not show it. Also the pto pulley was different on the models woth the brake. They had a step added for the brake to touch.
