I have across this Bolens labelled as a H16. Apart from the wrong colour and the plastic chair, I am puzzled that the hood does not have the iconic air scoop. The photos are not very good and it would seem that there is no scoop. A replacement hood? The seller say it got the Techumeh engine in it.

Is this a bit unusual? Your thoughts please?

Looks to me like the front of the hood has been raised for top of engine clearance but maybe not.  My G14 with Tec engine has the hood scoop.

Looks like some one put a shorter hood scoop on it I still see part of some kind of hood scoop in the photo.

Spoke to that chap when it first came on eBay a while a go he sent me some photos of the bonnet from the inside and the original hole is still there. The one that you see on it now is not original and has been welded on from the outside.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I have texted the seller about the serial #. Just wish sellers would post up better photos and why do people muck about with changing the colours.....

Dave do you know why the bonnet/hood been tampered with? Just curious that's all.
