I just picked up this tiller. Model 2091 01. I am trying to find out what year it is. My internet searches have not helped. I would also hope to find out what type of oil to use in the lower end and correct spark plug as I will be restoring it this winter for next years' gardening. thnx - ron

Welcome to GTT!

Its your lucky day, I happen to have a 1 page brochure featuring the Mustang tiller :D

Sorry for the poor quality. I was having technical difficulties.

I will look in my Bolens binders and see if I can find a partslist and more information about your tiller.
It should be around 1970-1974

The 2091-01 tiller was made for one year only (1971) and was 4HP

There's really no specific reason why Bolens made this one year. Bolens was always changing their paint scheme and design so it was pretty common for equipment to be made for a year or two before they came out with a different design or color.

Brian was 1/2 right.:smile1:

The 2091-01 began as a 1970 model, and was only made in 1970 & 1971.

The 1970 Service school manual I have shows the 2091-01 as being a 71' only
I know there have been a few errors in the past with these manuals....could this be another?

BTW.. thanks for the brochure of that tiller :D

Why would a 1970 manual have any information about a 1971 model? .....Sumptin' ain't right!

The 1977 manual shows it for 1970 & 1971.

Oops Thats my mistake... I think I'm still half asleep LOL Its a 1976 Service seminar manual that has information from about 1952-1976

I took a second look and again I was wrong :wallbanging:

It indeed was made from 1970-1971

Maybe I need to get some Glasses :D
