Nice find and good rescue on all the Bolens. I started on my reel mower too it's currently put away for now. You will be busy for a long time.

Hey Rick I think I will be needing some parts!!

 

Yes Bolens800uk that is what I was thinking the reel mower will be a show piece, and I will put it on the front of the Bolens 1000. The 38" green mower deck also go's with the 1000. the 42" red mower deck go's on the Bolens1256, it will also fit my Bolens 1456 H14. The two yellow Snowcasters are different models.

Yes Sawdust I believe the tillers all work, and I was real happy to find those two mower decks in good working condition, not all rusted out and still had their Bolens stickers on them, the deck I got two years ago for my 1456 H14 was twice the money and it was missing the belt cover and needed to be rebuilt. I never thought I would find a reel mower, and its in good condition, it needs rollers though.

I'd hold off on pulling the heads, just pull the plugs and flood the cylinder with Marvel Mystery oil - let it soak for a while and then try turning them over with a pipe wrench (about 18") to loosen things up - might save you a bit of work.....

Check with Brian, I think he's looking into having some rollers made

I had a question for you guys,

 

What do you think this is mounted to the front of the flywheel of the Bolens 1050?
