Hi, Got my 1963 Bolens 800 up and running yesterday.
Got the new belts on her and away she went.
Thanks to those that posted the sizes and methods of changing the belts, makes life a little easier.
She's got lots of steam and can go up my steep hills without any problems.
Going to replace the old tires next, thinking of putting a Tractor Ag tire on the back for better traction when cultivating or plowing, and something for steering grip on the front.
Notice from some of the photos some guys are using a Carlile tire.

Thanks again,

Glad to hear you got her running. A lot of people use the Carlisle tires. They quit making the super lugs though. They make the tru power which is a good looking tire but not as nice looking as the super lug.
