Hope everyone is well and thanks to all of the people who have kept the Bolens forum alive and well. I was able to gather a bit of information before my recent purchase of a ST 160. I hope I will be able to contribute a little as well to the forum. First here is a pic of the tractor. ST 160 model and I believe the first year of the line (1984).
She is a little rough around the edges, but the typical solid machine. I hope to refurbish her to some extent this fall or winter. For any other ST owners I have attached the Repair Manual to this post. I just received an owner's manual which I will work on posting as well.
As for question about the tractor, the mower belt keeps popping off a pulley that is at a slight diagonal (left side) and I was wondering if anyone had a quick fix suggestion versus the belt needs to be replaced because it has stretched.
The second part of my recent purchases has to do with a Model 30326 tiller attachment. It is the appropriate one for this machine, and while it is in pristine condition (for its age), there is no manual. Does anyone have the manual or be able to provide instructions on how to hook it up? I also need to know the appropriate belt size too.
My thanks ahead of time and take care.
