Hi everyone! Just bought my first Bolens today, a 1054-01. Not running, no attachments.

 

Looks to be complete with the exception of the lighting system. Someone pulled the headlights and switch and left various wires disconnected.

 

Motor looks good, clean, original paint, clean oil, not stuck. Gas smells like it's beggining to varnish.

 

Anyway, I'm looking through the stickys right now and downloading some manuals, looks like there's a lot of good information here.

 

Just stopping in to say "Hi" for now.

 

-Niles
