Huh,
Looks like they are pretty clean originals Kevin. I like that 600.

Congrats. The Bolens 750 with the sickle bar mower would be sweet too.

Those tractors look great. It would be nice for you to have them and get them up and running. I like the sickle bar.

Here's a couple more pics : sounds good , runs good , my maiden voyage on it proved all systems go. I'm going to pass on the 750 (pretty sure). I have a 405 & 405a sickle. Here's a couple stills (405a) off a video I took this fall , it came from the same owner of the Bolens cart I posted about previously. It too is in very nice shape, the knives guard ( I know not shown) is pristine right down to ribbon style clamping strap, buckle & decal.

Looking for some up close pics of how the throttle/choke knobs mount onto these stubs, I'm assuming there was some type of threaded nut or barrel that attached to the shafts so you can screw these knobs ( are these the right ones ?) on. Thanks for any/all help and any close up pics would be much appreciated. Thanksimage.jpg

The knobs should thread right on however yours appear to be straight up not at an angle.

I have seen a few like this and always thought people bent them but have now seen too many for it to be the user.

I wonder if Bolens had a bad run on those metal levers and just said the heck with it and installed the defects, there is no variation in part numbers for these levers which baffles me and makes me think they were just recycling parts.

Well I learned something new once again!

 

It appears Bolens also used a lever 1714218 which should be the straight lever like you have in the picture.

I could be wrong but if my memory serves right the straight levers I've seen utilized a thin nut to secure the 1715794 knobs.

Okay , thanks for info Doc. Here's another pic of the choke side , looks like a p.o. tacked this extension to it. I'm curious to what was on this shaft to allow knobs to thread onto it, or is there a different knob that just pushes onto shaft ? Thanks again.

All manuals call for knob 1715794 which is threaded like yours in the picture.

I wish I would have saved those pics with the straight levers :wallbanging:

 

I have seen many "home brew" additions to these controls as they always seem to be missing or broken off.
