That blue is not a Bolens color.  The Bolens tractors were white.

 

The fella refurbing my 1886-01 forklift is using IHC white (International Harvester).

If you look through that whole thread, don't let the other colors of that tractor fool you.  The frame was also white on the 1886-01, and not black like the FL.  It was repainted in non-original colors before I got it.  We are keeping it in the non-original colors to preserve the history of the tractor rather than taking it back to it's original condition.

 

I'm sure that someone here, probably Jerome, can post a pic of an 1886-01 in the proper colors for you.

Tractorholic, Thanks for that info, really helps if I am going to go factory or history.

 

Everyone else.........Starter update......... Took to local Heilig, they repaired it, $65 + tax, and also showed me it works on the bench. Looks like tonight I might get it back in.

Looking for help with eaton-12 replacement fluid. Can I use regular tractor supply hydraulic fluid? or should I stay with the texamatic 1846-6159? I do not want problems in the future. Any big box store or small auto store stock something close to the texamatic stuff? Oh, and spark plugs, whats general consensus? champion rh-10?

Thanks

Bernie

 

PS: Anyone got a gas cap out there? Dang one I have is a bit loose, was thinking of adding more rubber to it.....

You'll get different answers about the fluid. I've been using Napa or Tractor supplies Universal tractor fluid for years with no problems.

I bought a brand new (aftermarket) starter with Bendix for $63.00 with free shipping from a guy in Georgia for one of my 1886's. It works perfectly.

Bud, That's great, I was looking at one in S.Dakota for $50.00, almost bought it just to keep on the shelf. What model is it?

Also, the 1886-01 does not have a cutout in the tin for the oil filter.

Took me a while to realize that. Thought someone was nuts saying they had to remove the engine tin to change the filter.

As far as the paint code if you want the original color I used Rustoleum Almond #7770 on my 1886-01. It is a pretty close match to the original. I also used it on all my tube frame tractors of the same vintage. Good luck with your tractor the 1886 is an awesome tractor.
