I like my Bolens, but damn if I'm not always replacing or repairing something on them!

 

This most recent happened when I was mowing with the H16 and went to lift the deck only to discover that the lift linkage had lost some parts! It seems the bits which held the linkage to the frame are somewhere out in the grass...

 

Here's a pic of what is left after the parts had fallen off

I never looked very closely at the parts which had been there so I am uncertain exactly what they look like aside from the tiny image in the parts manual. If you know of an easy fix, I'd appreciate hearing about it.

 

I think the following part numbers are correct:

        1107385 Flat Washer, 1/2
        1185496 Lock Nut, 1.2-13
        1100067 Capscrew, 1/2-13 x 2
        1713122 Bowed Washer
        1720610 Sleeve

I can post a pic of mine tomorrow. It's basically a bolt with a sleeve so the lever can pivot back & forth.

Here is mine before I rebuilt it. I had no lever so I fabricated one so my lever may look a little different than yours but the hardware is the same.

These two pics different lighting is looking down from the top. The sleeve acts as a pivoting point when the lever & bolt go back & forth. You could probably find what you need at your local hardware store. Hope this helps.ref1.jpg ref2.jpg

Thanks a bunch Sawdust! If I have to fabricate something that will go a long ways.
