I recently acquired a G-14 with a plan and sno-caster and it looks like the front PTO is missing. The belts are hanging free and there's nothing underneath.

It should still be in my grandfathers barn somewhere, but I have no idea what it looks like. Anyone have a picture so I know what I'm looking for?

Here's the Parts List for your tractor:

The PTO parts are shown at the bottom of page 4.

The PTO should look similar to this one.  The only difference would be that it would be setup for two belts.

However, if you have the -05 model which was made in 1978 it would be different and would look like this.

The belt guard would be different as well because it has a PTO brake incorporated.

How would I know if I have the -05 model?  The tag on the tractor says Model 1453, Serial Number 101627 (I think.)  It's worn and hard to read.

I'm guessing that it's a -01.

 

The SN could have been 0101627.  It's also possible that it was 101627 like you posted. The left most digit of a 6 digit SN would be the production run number. With a 7 digit SN the two left most digits would be the production run number.

 

A -05 would have a serial number of 05nnnnn.

 

There was a change in the serial number scheme that took place right at the time the G1 was made.

 

You can find that explanation here:

It looks like there's a 0, followed by a couple spaces, then the number I posted.

Definitely a 01 series (1st production run) based off of the model serial tag style. The Husky dog Bolens style logo that you have pictured was replaced with the FMC Bolens style logo on the later series.

Looked in the barn after work today and found TWO pto's... I'm guess he had more than one Bolens over the years. Now to figure out the fasteners...

Any idea what the thread pitch/count is for the 9/16" bolts?  

 

UPDATE: I remembered the parts diagrams linked in an earlier post.  I'll look for the fasteners tomorrow.  Thanks!
