Hey Bolens,

 

I don't have a rear light but I was thinking, is it possible to add another light? Like, have the red light but add another light like the ones in the front. I won't be working the tractor at night but would be nice to have one for those unlikely occasion that I am and need to see where I am reversing.

If you wanted to you could add a rear light to the back , maybe one with a handle on top so you can direct it where you want?

I'm sorry, might not have worded it right. Ment if the electrical system would be able to handle add ons.

Hope by next weekend, I have her running strong and happily strolling through my yard. Maybe next I can concentrate on the deck.

Also, thanks again Bolens for your help, quick response and shipping.

 

I have a question which I hope doesn't sound dumb. The needle bearings, could I just press both of them out from one direction? Hoping I wont need like a special puller or something.

 

Thanks for looking

GhoSt

Oh and another question. On one side of the clutch, I have a solid 3/32" left of meat on the clutch, would it be ok if I glued one of the pads to it to give me extra meat or is it recommend to remove it?

 

Thanks again,

GhoSt

The best light to add for the rear is a 12volt LED spot or flood light.  ....LED lights are very bright and require very little amperage, so it will not overload your electrical system.

 

Here is one sample of such a light : http://www.tractorsu...ht?cm_vc=-10005

 

These have an adjustable base and are easy to mount.  ...Many auto parts stores, farm stores, etc, stock LED work lights.  ..You could also search Amazon.

Good thing I didn't. When I started to remove it, it would break off in large pieces and there was slight rust under them.

Thank you sir! This was exactly what I needed to know. Now to figure out how to add one without having to drill extra holes on the panel.

 

And a bit of an update!

Your doing some awesome work there! Great job! I heard that you should send the wife out shopping while you bake a batch of Bolens clutch disks because they don't make the house smell quite like brownies or cookies :rolling:

Thank you! Well, I did apologize to my brother and his fam because I used his oven. They live across the street and they were over for breakfast. After doing it, I would agree what others have said and ask the wife to go and enjoy herself for a bit. Not a pretty smell.

Hey Guys,

 

I am missing this part. Looks like it never had it. How important is it? #9 on the clutch section. Small little spring washer.

Yes, you should have that washer in place.

 

The original may have broken and fallen out sometime in the past.
