My latest acquisition, a Bolens 1000 with a Wisconsin TRA12D1 engine. I picked it up for some of the attachments on it. I don't plan on keeping it since I don't need three Bolens tube frames. I need to pull off the attachments and determine if the engine is any good. If it is, I'll sell it cheap to anyone on the forum. I'm in the Springfield, MA area and I'll post it in the classifieds when I'm done.
Boy this 1000 is an odd duck, a mix of old stuff (column controls), and new (pull controls). I'm guessing the column controls seized and were replaced by a PO.
The axle pin is stuck, is there a secret to getting it free? I soaked it with PB Blaster last night.
Here are some pics I snapped last night:
