I need a Bolens 850 heat shield for a Bolens 850 as soon as possible. This is the part that covers up the engine towards the operator.  Part number 1721542.


Let me know if you have one.


Ben W.

Post a pic or a drawing. I have a parts tractor that I thought was a 1050. The tubes are bent so I brought the hood, dash, and tower into the garage years ago.  Would it have the same shield? Good Luck, Rick

Comparing some of the parts manuals, that # 1721542 heat shield was used on Bolens 850's, 1053-01,-02, and 1225 tractors.


Part # 1717399 was used on some 1050's, but I don't know how it differs from the other part #.  .....Perhaps there was a number change???


All of the above tractors used a Wisconsin engine, so it may be possible the 1717399 could be used by drilling 1 new hole??
