I am wanting to eventually put the hood back on my Bolens 800. The Tank that is on the current engine sits too tall. I want to put an original tank back on it to get the height back down.

In that case am looking for a Metal Fuel Tank for a Bolens Tube Frame tractor. It looks like I can make any tank from tube frames work with the exception of a Briggs equipped 600.

Ok it did not take long I installed the Tank and bracket last night.

 

There were some very minor "fit" tweaks and moving of some screws on the engine air tin. It is now running on the new tank.

Some other minor items need to be done like mounting the fuel line on the front of the engine cowl, plugging the holes in the engine cowl where the fuel line went through.

I did a test fit of the hood and everything fits! Soon Very Soon, the hood will be back on it after some 40 years.

 

Pictures of the before and after will be coming Look for it on the Bolens Forum.

 

Again Rick THANKS!
