Like the title says, I've decided to build a Bolens 1050. I will be using a G14 as the base and swap some parts around until I have a running tractor.
I've had the G14 for a few years now and it has just sat for the last two because of some wiring problems. I finally got around to working on it and can't get the Tecumseh to run now. I'm pretty sure the SSI went bad. I had a spare that was good but I swapped it in and got nothing. I think it went bad too, or I'm just missing something simple.
I've tried to sell the G14 and can't bring myself to part it out. I also don't want to have it just sit around and take up space any longer. So it's time to start over.
I have a lot of 1050 parts laying around so I will be using a TRA 10D Wisconsin along with anything need to make it run. I'm also thinking about swapping the hood and fenders but I haven't decided on that for sure yet.
I will add updates as I get time to work on it.
The G14 I'm using is the one is this picture.
