I just joined GTtalk when I came upon the site while researching Bolens tractors and I am very pleased to be able to participate in this forum. I brought back my dad's Bolens 1556 a week ago and plan on restoring and getting it running. He always kept it stored inside until about 1 1/2 years ago when he was slowly succumbing to Alhzheimer's and demanded it removed from the garage and pushed into the woods. Anyway, it is at my home and I am going to power wash it as soon as the temps get up there a little higher.

Kringlecarver, welcome to the forum from a fellow cheese head. I think you will find this to be a friendly place. Sorry about your Dad. I hope that restoring his Bolens will be a good project for you. Ask any questions you have and post a picture or two if you can. Glad to have you here. Mike
