I have had this in my watch list for over a year now and still have not figured out what this fits.

I'm thinking it may go to one of the Rear tine tillers due to the different sheave sizes but I have yet to find this match up to any of them.

It has to go on something from the 50's to early 60's.

I was looking at that pulley trying to figure out what it was for a couple hours ago.Was looking for a 4 belt engine pulley for Chieffan's repower.

The hole looks a little small for a Tiller engine pulley.Looks like 3/4".Could it be a RAM PTO pulley?

 

I'm just guessing here so don't laugh lol.

I have a 2 groove pulley on the way.  Going to wait till I get it and if it is not to deep in the hub area I may put two of them back to back to get 2 for drive and 2 for PTO.  Will keep you posted on how it turns out.

My grandfather used to call something he couldn't figure out a "whim wham you grind smoke with."

 

That is obviously the input pulley off the large frame whim wham smoke grinder attachment.

:wave: Brian !

 

I don't have any parts price sheets handy.  ....Does that part # appear on any early price sheets, or had it been superceded to a newer part number? 

 

The #1705784 Sheave was used on the Clinton engine on the following Bolens/ME front-tine Mustang tillers:

 

The M16A Super Mustang(1956-1957), M16B Mustang (1957), and M16D Heavy Duty Mustang (1957) tillers had two speeds for the tines, and they were changed by moving the belt on the two-groove pulleys.   

 

It is possible this pulley # was also used on some of the M16 tillers, but the earlier tillers were single-speed.  ....I don't have manuals for all of the early tillers.

 

For 1958, the engine pulley part number was 1708492.

Thanks Bruce!

No new numbers were given to this part that I know of.

I probably should by it for when I finally find a tiller to go with it :D

Well now this is interesting. Many have wondered if that metallic paint for the ride a matics really existed back then. By looking at those pictures it appears that Bolens did indeed have the metallic paint back then.

Yes, indeed !  ...Bolens did use metallic paint in the 1950's.  ...Not all models, as some of the early years were not metallic, but by the mid-late 1950's almost all green was metallic.

Husky, there are a few threads buried in the archives about the green metallic paint. Problem is it faded overtime and that leads to a lot of confusion for people.

We actually found an exact match to this paint a couple years ago.
