Something which may be confusing about Bolens equipment:
Sometimes, a certain model tractor was only manufactured in one year, but there was sufficient inventory that didn't sell, so that model was carried over as the next year's model, but it did not show up as production in that year.
Case in point:
Bolens paperwork listed the 1477-01 tractor as being produced only in 1971, yet the 1477 appears in 1971 and 1972 brochures as current models.
The #18030 power steering kit was an option for the 1477 tractors, not the 1476's.
