Worked more on the re wiring of the Bolens Frame Steer but no luck.  Tomorrow I am going to draw a diagram and post it and maybe someone will point me in the right direction that knows more about wiring.

Here is my current project. Anyone who can help me connect the wires that would be great. To someone who knows basic wiring this should be a 15 minute job. Tha's not me, ha,ha. Have a great fourth of July !

I look forward to seeing the answer to this puzzle.  I stink at electrical things.  I know... shocking!

I tore down the 11 hp Bolens Frame Steer engine today and pulled th coil . No spark at all. I must have fried it a couple weeks ago when I connected a hot wire to the wrong spot. I got a new coil coming and I am going to just install a simple push button switch with a seperate kill switch to shut it off. I love the little Bolens how it drives and steers . With positive rear axle I would love to try plowing snow with it .

  I have worked more on the Bolens than any other tractor to get it going but I have also learned more with the Bolens so it is all good. Now I even know how to replace shifting forks for  a transaxle and weld it up to a solid axle.

I installed the new coil in the Bolens Frame steer yesterday and it fired right up. My new wiring works perfect !! Here is the very first picture of all 16 tractors and all 10 trailers in my backyard plus the jd jeep for my grandson, ha,ha. Even had room for the motorhome, ha,ha.

Ha, Ha, Ha , yes very green and no expensive water bill , lol

  Now the spark in the Simplicity / deere is gone. I pulled the coil and it looks like they are a bit rare to find a new one?

The only thing more of a PITA than a flojet is pre '73 briggs ignitions. Good luck. Do you have to break the oil sump loose on that one like you do on the Gilsons to pull the engine?

I did not pull the engine , did it from the top.

    Today my wife put 10 of my tractors for sale on Craigslist. Before we pack them back in the back shed for the winter we will try to sell them. If they don't sell we will at least know we tried and I will just have to not build more future projects. It has been great fun and each one is unique. I even have the narrow front , the 4x4 articulating 9630 and the three round fenders up for sale . So I am going to give it a shot .  I already have someone on their way to look at the three jd 110 round fenders . So that is a good sign .

I sold two of the jd 110 round fenders and possibly the third might be sold tomorrow. Got three other people coming to Gaylord on Sat. to looks at the 730 narrow front with the loader and flat wagon.  One fellow coming to look at the Cat v-plow and wing machine and one fellow interested in the jd 455 all wheel steer. So we'll see what happens. My proces are firm and if nothin gelse sells then I am fine with just 14 tractors and just 10 trailers, ha,ha.

I sold the low hour 455 last fall , this was the 455 with 1200 hours.

   I sold the jd custom 430 yesterday so now I am feeling more space in my yard. I now only have 12 tractors and 11 trailers . I also got rid of 8 attachments that were taking up room. I have two more free tires and rims and one more antique jd spring seat so this week I will weld up another sulky. Nothing fancy, just a garage sale item someday at my man sale.

Here is my third sulky I just finished today . I used the last two free tires and rims and the other free jd spring seat. Just a little something for my garage sale someday , ha,ha. I heard these things are real chick magnets at tractor shows so they should sell good. ha,ha.  I could not sell the third jd 110 round fender so looks like I will convert it to  a mini jd 4020 . I loved my little 4020 and regret building the cab for it. But now time to move forward and make a smaller one. That might be my next project starting next week.

Todays pic shows me removing the round fenders from the 110 and installing the 30 in rear tires. Next I will work on the rear fenders. I like it better already.
