I am interested to know which is which with the tanks, as I have no serial number tag on my tin but have the plastic tank.

Every 2087-02 I have seen personally had the metal fuel tank (mine included). It is quite possible that somewhere in mid-late production of the 2087-02 they started the change over to plastic though. Another quirky item with the 2087-02 is the hood and hood latch. Some of the early production models had the carry over hood and latches from the 2086, and it is even noted in the parts manual. However, in the parts manual the old style hood and latch is depicted for 2087-01 series only, but the 2087-01 does not exist in production. I've seen a handful of early 2087-02 like this. It has been noted on many occasions that the Bolens books and manuals do have quite a few discrepancies. 

 

The 2087-03 and 2087-04 have the plastic fuel tank and the common style # 1727127 rubber hood latches. The 2087-03 has the newer style steering wheel with the part # 1731551 round steering wheel cap cover (as opposed to the old part # 1727415 rectangle insert on the earlier models). The 2087-04 also has this, but it also has the newer fender and seat mounting system with the large seat spring. The 2087-03 had the old style fender and seat mount like the HT18, 2086 HT20 and 2087-02. The 2087-04 also has a different PTO sheave, belt guard and related parts due to it having a PTO brake to meet the required ANS safety standards. There are many other differences between the different production series, but these are the most visual changes that are easy to note and see at a glance.

Excellent information; thanks.

This is one of the reasons why I enjoy being a member of GTT is because there's so much retained information out there to learn to discover and to learn about the peculiarities of each model produced by Bolens. Just absolutely dig that kind of stuff.

Anyway, I hope to strike a deal today.......

More photos and as others have pointed out, the missing tinware is more obvious. Still worth pursuing in my view.

Got some more history about this old girl. It belonged to an elderly lady who owns a small holding near him. The lady is very short hence the improvised Heath Robinson's adaptions on the pedals. He's going over to the lady's small holding to see what's knocking around in her barn and workshop and hopefully be able to dig up the missing tinware etc. It was used to cut the grass around her property.

Here are some pics of a rear PTO that you requested in your 1st post Bolens800uk.

The smaller fine (15) spline shaft which is most righthanded in 3rd pic, is the input side that is powered by the tiller propshaft:)

Update, this post was supposed to be in reply to another topic, but somehow got crossed with this post! Please disregard.

Excellent information. So, with my old style seat and pan, and my plastic tank, I have finaly figured out that I have a 2087-03.
Thank you!

Thank you!

Mine is an 02 with the old style seat bracket, plastic tank, and newer style hood latches. The serial number dates my engine as a 1974, so unless Im wrong makes the tractor a 75?

Sorry, the video is all I have of my fuel tank that I can find.
