Hi,
Hope someone can help? I've just bought a Bolens 2030 Rear engine rider very early model about 1988, I managed to get the engine running sweet, but it wont drive, I press the Drive pedal and I can see the end of the shaft turning at the gearbox but it does not drive the wheels, any ideas?

Mike

Hi, Welcome to GTT :wave:

 

 

Here's a PDF of Both the partslist and Owners manual for your Bolens RER.

These ran by variable speed so make sure your belts are in good condition and are routed the right way in the sheaves.

We would love to see some pictures if you get a chance!

I've worked on a few of these and they are great mowers for cutting grass.

Hi,

     Many thanks for the files, I've got the top of the gearbox off now and it looks like the selector is just sliding up and down it's shaft, not connecting with any gears, or moving them, mystery?
