A fella from the UK is on 'the other forum', is trying to pin down what year his H16 was built. He needs that for licensing it.
I am trying to help, but I've run into another bit of Bolens 'weirdness'.
His data tag shows: MODEL: 1656 Serial: 0103740
Looking at my documentation it shows the 1656-01 as being built in 1973.
Knowing that production runs sometimes spanned multiple years, I looked for the H16 in the following years and ran into the 'weirdness'.
The next time that the H16 shows up is in 1976 with the -02 and -03.
It's not shown in 1974 and 1975.
Is it possible that Bolens didn't produce the H16 in those two years, and then brought it back in 1976? Or was it just accidently omitted in the listing for 1974 and 1975?
Anyone have any insight into this?
