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.

 

Which model used the 1714218 lever?   .....There was also the #1716437 lever.  ....Did one # replace the other?

 

All of the knobs carried the same part #1715794, yet the earlier years used black knobs and the later years used red knobs.

Hard to say, only time I've seen these 1714218 levers were in the 1963 parts list

I wonder if this part # was for the 1962 model 600 ??  ...If I remember correctly, the throttle control on this tractor had a metal lever, and did not use the plastic knob.

No, the levers on the early 600 were a complete unit. The parts list that shows this straight lever includes it with the 1715794 knobs which would not mount on the paddle shaped steel levers.

I just got those same knobs for my 800. My levers on my tractor were straight not bent. That would make them stick out to the sides. Also, my lever is threaded so that the knob just threads onto it. Now is this original I do not know. This is the state it was in when I got it.

Yes , their quality is not the best however and therefore maybe hard to see what I'm trying to describe , Doc your info is spot on (as usual) and your help is much appreciated , my problem is I try to be a perfectionist , ( based on your posts and pics of your resto's ) I think I'm safe to say you ARE . I would like to see the attachment point of the threaded knob to the flat shaft , I have a little bit of fabrication skills, and would try to duplicate as close to original as possible, thank you guys for all the info

Was there a difference in the levers from a 1000 to a 600? I have some nos (1715729) ones for my 1000. They're the curved with the threaded knob.

Ok, got it figured out after some extensive research.

 

After the 1962 Husky " steel Paddle" knobs were kicked to the curb, the very late 1962 600's & Early 1963 600 and 1963 800 both utilized a new lever housing and knob assembly 1714218  which were sold as complete units just like the previous ones in 62'.

This is the style with the knobs laying straight down. (Knobs were black)

 

This idea evidently was a poor design and somewhere down the line it got phased out midway 63' and they finished out the year with angled levers 1714367 and black Knobs 1715794

So from what I can put together these were only produced a year or less.

 

 

 

 

For 1964 a design change was made as well as a service bulletin going out now announcing that these parts for the control cables could now be purchased separately  These new styles used angled lever's with red knobs , which is the common ones you mostly see.

 

 

Of course there still is some grey area like Why Have I seen the "old" 1714218 levers on husky 900's like this post for example. I guess we'll never know for sure. You sometimes have to guess as 40+ years is a long time for someone to swap control housings with a different model, They may even have recalled the straight 1714218 levers and offered the new replaceable models free of charge (This was often done by Bolens with many defects found later after a model was introduced)

Wow, talk about above & beyond research , impressive, thanks. Now.....at the risk of sounding ungrateful , I'm still in the dark. Is their a knob - paddle that attached to what I have pictured or are these short shafts it? Thanks again

The cone shaped knobs would  have been attached to what you have
