Looking for a service manual for a 1476, or a 1455 which is nearly the same.  They are not included in the large frame service manual in the manuals section.  It starts with the 1800 series and on up for the later models.

I've used the manual we have in the Manuals Section for my 1250. It is pretty close for alot of things that I needed. Good Luck, Rick

I found a partial in the Misc manuals section.  About 25 pages or so.  Will check out the manual for the 1250.  The 1455 should be the same or real close to the 1476 but didn't find it either.

Thanks but your 1250 is a tube frame where the 1476 is a large frame and about 20 years newer.  Not think there is much in common between the two besides motor, wheels and a steering wheel.

No, the 1250 was the first Large-Frame Bolens tractor.  ...It was introduced in 1967.

 

In 1969, the 1455 was introduced, and in 1970, the 1476.

Bolens never published a complete service manual for the earlier Large Frames powered by the Wisconsin singles. They are really not that complicated. If you have the operating manual for the tractor, a manual for the Wisconsin engines and a manual for the Eaton 12 hydro, you have covered most of the tractor.

Your right, the 1250 was a large frame.  I was thinking 1050.

What I really need is the wiring diagram for the 1476.  No ignition switch and just several wires, loose end that attach to the switch I would guess.  I could probably figure it out OK but would be much easier and faster with a diagram.

I thought possibly the engine manual would have it but that only showed the ignition system, nothing else.  Large Frame Service Manual does not show it either.  With solid state ignition I don't want to blow it up, if it hasn't already been done.  I get kind of nervous with no switch and bear wires hanging around.

Ask, and you shall receive!

Yes, I did see that.  Thank you much.  Be nice to have the internal contact points for the switch in the 3 positions like htere is for the tube frames.  thn I can match it up with a reasonably price ignition switch.

That is why I need the diagram of the internal positions of the OEM switch.  Most wiring diagrams show that but not for the 1476.
