Here's shot of coil on panel. That stock?? Below in engine area is a 2-cycle piston upside down in a clamp. Is that orig place for a round coil?? Not sure why that is there yet. Fuel pump on tin of engine, right place? Looks like similar cover on the carb, what I can see of it so far. Pump supposed to be there? Can there be just a black cover? Check-out the Safety wires on the carb air cleaner. Not stock is it? These suck down in engines commonly??

Love this spring on seat! Riding home on trailer, it bounced up for every bump trailer hit, couple pretty big jumps, odd to see in mirror. Here is shot of dash too just to show and any other left-over pix of tractor.

3 more Bolen's fell on trailer. Once one is seen, others come up and offer there junker for way too cheap and I break down and can't say no! Bought two, a G14 and older G10 chassis, a later model hood and sides and dash for G-something, hoping hood close enough for my Qt16, even tho it is some diff on hinge area and front material on sides seems thinner. All for $50, then just before leaving, a G9 chassis, kinda rough for $25 was added. Don't have that pix here cept the wheelie bars on back.

Well I see it didn't take long at all for it to happen to you too. Yep, the Bolens curse has struck again. They multiply very quickly and will soon consume all of your time, money and precious garage space. Before you know it, you'll be taking them into town to have them fitted for new shoes and picking out paint colors for them.

Congratulations - you have been bitten by the "Bolens Bug" - it is not fatal but can lead to a lifetime of suffering looking for the elusive "next one"!
