Well I'm back at working on my Bolens 1000. The head gasket was shot and it had oil leaks to fix. So as long it was apart I'm checking things over, it did run great before other than the bad head gasket.
Looking at the crank and rod and its scratched up, not bad but I might get it machined. Now for the rod which is where I've got a question. According to the parts manual the rod isn't inter changeable between the 2, which I assume is because of the stroke being different.
But when I do a search for a TR-10D rod most places list that they're the same and the part numbers don't match up with the manual.
Instead of finding a rod I have a TRA-10D that I could tear apart to swap the rod and crank. But if I do that would I have to use the cam out of the TRA-10D because of the compression release?
