Special thanks to ericfrompa for the assistance with the pictures!!:worshippy1: And thank you to everyone else for the compliments. I have had it for about 2 years and have only bought 1 spark plug, 2belts, 1 battery, 1muffler, and a whole lot of gas!! Cant believe how well things were built compared to todays standards!! I am planning a restoration at some point.....buy right now I am having too much fun using it!

:iagree:

With it being yellow, and having that loader on it, plus the beefed up front end, he can call it an 1050I or 1050U. The I or U standing "Industrial" or "Utility". :D

Sweet tractor 1967bolenscollector, maybe after you get it home you could take a look and see what exactly they did to"beef" it up and what parts they used if replaced parts with stronger ones. I drive really slow especially when loaded cuz I am afraid of breaking the front end, just seems like alot of weight up there...

There was a high-speed wheel kit for the tube-frames, but I don't know if it was a Bolens accessory (I think it was), or if it was provided by Johnson for use with their loader. .....The high-speed wheel kit used roller bearings in place of the bushings. .....I don't remember if the spindles were changed for use with tapered roller bearings, or if the bearings were straight roller bearings for use on the original spindles.

There was also a high-speed wheel kit for the 1250 which included wheels, tapered roller bearings, and threaded spindles.

:ditto:

I know in a couple brochure pictures I have seen the different rims that were used with this kit. I believe they were bolted on just like the rear tires.
