Good morning Gents,


I visited a friend last night who dragged home a BCS 745 tractor with a Kohler M14 engine on it.  What a beast.  Had no idea how big they are.  Nice looking piece of equipment.  Wouldn't mind the chance to play with it. 


The independent brakes are not working, and the differential lock cable is frozen up.  Other wise, the tractor looks pretty good.  However, it is a key start, and the key is missing.  The lock looks a lot like the lock on my Bolens tractor.  Were the keys standard?  I'm out of town and don't carry a  Bolens key with me.

It could be the common Indak key. What did Bolens use?

Indak.  When they get wore a little a pocket knife or small screwdriver will suffice.
