OK I found you bolens guys secret. All my hard to find Tecumseh parts are on bolens websites I have come to realize it feels like I hit a gold mine. Now I know all you guys hide them for your bolens!!!!...hahaha. but it got my curiosity going as I am interested in all tractors but have never messed with bolens tractors what models come with the OH Tecumseh engines. And did any have the OH180?

As far as I know, the largest TEC single cylinder engine Bolens used was the OH160.

 

For anything with higher HP they used twin engines, mostly by Kohler.

Didn't think to look at that series.

 

Guess I should have used the search function.
