Ok Guys, here is what I am going to do with the hydro filter on the H14 tractor. I am going to remove the spin on oil filter assembly from my Bolens 1225 hydro tractor and install it on the H14 the same way as on the Bolens 1256 hydro tractor. the 1256 and the H14 have the same fender support bracket so all I have to do is cut out the bracket the way the 1256 is cut out and I will be able to do the change over.
the first pictures are of the Bolens 1225 which is a parts tractor. The only thing left to the tractor is the tube frame rear axle tires and hydraulic system. In these pictures you can see the spin on filter next to the rear tire.
the other pictures are of my Bolens 1256, in these pictures you will see how the filter assembly is installed inside the right side of the fender support. The fender support is cut out so the filter assembly can be installed. When servicing the filter can be removed and replaced from underneath the fender support which means I don't have to remove the seat and fender once a year when it is time to do a filter service change.
Like Bob told me from Bob's Lawn and Garden, they should have never switched from a spin on to an in line filter on the Bolens H14 and H16 hydro's. It made it harder to service and now the filter has been discontinued at bthe worst or not readily available at the least.
