With the weather being cold I decided to take the list of Service Bulletins that is in the 1996 Garden Way Service Seminar Book and put them in numerical order to see how many if any were not listed.  I also had a Tube Frame Service Manual that had a list of Service Bulletins in it so I added that information to the list as well - the ones in it had a date so it sort of adds a time line to the bulletins.  Here is the list I have come up with in pdf format if anyone is interested - it starts at #133 so I assume there are quite a few of the early ones that were never listed in any published lists. 

 

Edit - There is an updated numerical list in the "Bolens Service Bulletin" section of the Bolens Manuals - here is a link to it - http://gardentractor...ber-jan-3-2017/

Thanks for the kind words.  Been going through the Bolens manuals section the last few days and found a few more of the earlier ones so I have added them to the list along with dates - attached is the updated version.  Added a new column "C" beside the bulletin number - if there is an "X" in that column it means I found a copy of the actual bulletin on the site.

Bolens 1000 was kind enough to create a new sub section in the Bolens Manuals section for "Bolens Service Bulletins".  I have uploaded a copy of the list and cleaned up copies of the actual service bulletins I found in various sub sections of the "Bolens Manuals" section.  Some were photos where the text was a little hard to read so I created new text on the first page and the original bulletin copy is on the next page.  Attached is a copy of Service Bulletin 069 as an example.

Great info in a lot of those.  Some also list serial numbers in them.    I have about everyone from #1-350.

Found three more bulletins today so I cleaned them up and uploaded them - which meant I had to update the numerical list again so the newest list is now in the manuals section in the "Bolens Service Bulletins" section if anyone wants the latest version.  I also edited the comment section of each service bulletin so it now shows who posted it originally and where so that they will get the proper credit for them.
