I just recently got a Bolens EK-10 (931-01), that has been sitting 10 years or more. It seems to be in really great shape, except the engine needs work. however when in neutral the back wheels don't turn freely. Is this normal? I read that BOLENS lawn mowers don't roll freely when in neutral. Thanks

Welcome to the Forum , these estate keepers are worm driven and have a free wheeling pin that needs to be released to manually push the machine, its the rear wheel opposite side of the engine muffler.

 

Manual below shows exactly where it is located.

Any pictures of your tractor?

Thanks, that's a relief that I don't have to mess with the transmission. The manual will come in handy, I was searching everywhere for one. I purchased a Parts/Service manual from ebay, I think that's more for the engine though.
Here is picture of it, its still in my trailer.
