I currently have a somewhat running Bolens 1256. A tear down of motor reveals a heavily scored crankshaft, shot journal and crank bearings. Looking for a rebuild-able TRA-12D and even better would be a running tractor. Willing to drive up to 4 hours away from Amsterdam, NY to make the deal.

Guess there is not one for sale within that distance. To those wondering, zip code 12010 is Amsterdam, NY.

Sometimes you just have to travel to get some of these old tractors.   I drove clear across the state of Missouri for a tractor, single disk and aerator.  That was after driving south 2 hours to start the journey East.

:welcometogttalk: Try not to take it personal, been here a lil while, encountered more Heavy Users, collectors and compulsively helpful types than outright sellers.

This is less than 2hrs from you, might fit the bill. Or maybe this if you really do like the roadtrips.
