Thanks, Jerome. That is good information to know, although I am surprised that Bolens never issued one and went on to the -03 & -04 numbering.

 

 

They offered a supplement to the 1886-01 operation manual showing the changes on the dash that is it.  I have never seen a 1886-02 parts list and I have stacks of paper work.

Can you scan the supplement for me? My fleet does not have a bunch of 1886's in it, so I never bothered to collect a full set of related paperwork.

Right now I don't have a good scanner.   It does not list any part numbers on it.    I could take photo with my camera if that is ok?

Yes, even that would be very helpful. Thanks!

Perfect, Jerome! So I can take the Parts List for the 1886-01 tractor, and change the choke, throttle and dash part numbers to the ones for the later tractors, and create my own Parts List for the 1886-02 tractors. Easy!

I don't use any Apple products, so I don't know the answer to your specific question about downloading with an iPad, except to say that the download should work on a Windows-based PC. I thought that there were viewers that you could use on Apple products, but I cannot say for sure.


I will have to borrow my wife's laptop or my so 's to have a look at what you are compiling.

Andrew, you can download the MS Excel app from the App Store or use numbers. Just tried both and they work well.

Spreadsheet looks great

There is at least one other part you would need to add for the -02. which is a heat shield that attaches just in front of the brake pedal on the right side of the tractor.

 

The 1886-01 didn't have that and it WILL cook your leg if you don't put some sort of deflector there.

 

I know that Bolens issued a service bulletin on that and later offered a rubber deflector for retrofitting.

 

It would be #157 on page two of the 1886-03-04 parts manual.

 

Here's a pic of my1886-02 with it outlined in red.  It's kind of hiding behind the lift handle for the mid-mount grader blade.

Thanks, OB! I will make that addition. I am almost done with the Large Frames. I just need to wrap up the HT23's in all their glory (and confusion in the Parts List)

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

 

The only two that have deflectors is one that has a piece of rubber pop riveted on as per the service bulletin, and the forklift that has the #172 2942 part on it. That part was not on the forklift when I bought it, but was added during the restoration.

 

Here's a pic of my -01 with the 'service bulletin' pop riveted piece:

And a pic of the Forklift with the #172 2942 part on it:

The 1886-01 Parts List shows that right side heat deflector as P.N. 1722942.
The 1886-03/04 Parts List shows the same diagram, but the P.N. is 1723530.

Maybe the change was from rubber to metal?

As far as I know, no 1886-01 left the factory with that part on it.

 

If you check both heat shields, you will see that they have different numbers as well.

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.
