OK, now THIS is weird.
I just looked at my copy on the -01 parts list and it shows that deflector.
I know danged well that NONE of my -01s had that as original equipment
Sometimes Bolens would send out revisions of the Parts Lists. .....Check the Form # on your parts list. ....It may indicate if it is a revision.
For example, my parts lists for the 1250 tractor appears as such:
Model # 197-01 = Form # P-551691 - dated 1/67
Model # 197-02 = Form # P-551691-1 dated 5/67
Model # 197-03 = Form # P-551909 - Revised & Reissued 5/69 - Replaces Issue of 12/67
My manuals are not a complete set by any means. ...Some are the early printing before a later revision was issued. ....Many were supposed to be discarded, according to Bolens.
Bolens advised the dealers to insert the latest revision and to remove & discard the prior printing from their binders.
