I just purchased a 1467 with mower deck, tiller, snowblower, and blade.
It had the clutch apart and some of the wiring messed up when I got it. Found a new clutch and found a wiring diagram and runs great now. However I need some info on how to mount the tiller and snowblower etc. It came with a long drive shaft and a bracket and bolt on unit with a pulley. I have the mower mounted and running fine.
Thanks for any help.

Welcome to GTtalk. I am not familiar with the medium frame Bolens but the manuals Brian posted a link to should help out. I am guessing the tiller would mount similar to the tubeframes.

First :welcometogttalk:

The bracket with the pully would be the PTO that was required to run the tiller and blower for that tractor. You will need to remove the deck and the mule drive for the deck to mount the other stuff.The PTO mounts where the mower deck mule drive goes.On the back of the tractor there should be a bracket with a hole at the bottom on each sided of the frame.This is where the tiller mounts and the bracket on the tiller in the middel sticking up will mount to a lift cable coming out the center of the frame towards the top.Then you will install the drive shaft and it connects to the pto unit.You will need a different belt to run the pto kit.The snowblower is pretty easy to mount.On the back of the blower frame you should see two tabs with a hole in them on each side of the frame.These will line up with a couple of holes on the tractor around the front axle and just a couple pins and it is mounted.There should be a round tube with the blower that is the lift tube and mounts to the blower and the underside of the tractor to the rockshaft.Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

Thanks for the great instructions! The parts I have make more sense now. I should be able to get the tiller mounted.
