:welcome: to GTTalk,
I'm sure some of the guys could get you a model by description, but it may help to post a couple of pics if you have any.

Good luck on your purchase.

Welcome to GTT. Bolens are great tractors. You can download the tractor and engine manuals from our manuals section(3 free per day). There is a big shop manual for tube frames that will help too. Relax and enjoy the site. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome!

 

Pictures would narrow things down.

Right now we're all just speculating on what it could be.

If that is the case it may be, but you have to take into consideration engine swaps, modifications ect.

Everyone has their own definition of the 3 and 6 speed trans. Alot of the time people call them 3 speed because thats all they see on the gear shift. 

 

Its near impossible to ID without Pictures

Does your tractor look like this:  http://gardentractor...bolens-1253-ad/

 

The 1970 model 1253 -01,-02, & -03 all used a Tecumseh 12 hp with that spec number.
