Bent Clutch Rod II

Oct 14, 2020 01:59 PM | Fbeafore in Custom Projects

I am a rather new owner of a very old Bolens 1050 tractor. When I purchased it, it was on it's last legs in terms of repair. Firstly, I did cosmetics - paint, new seat, lights....then I started to see mechanical challenges - worn out steering, ugly wiring, new high voltage components....

For those of you that read my previous thread “Onan BF/MS Rebuild Dilemma”, this thread is a follow-up. In my previous thread, I finally pulled the Onan BF/MS from my SS/16 because it was burning a lot of oil and fouling plugs. What I found was not g...

This is the second narrow front tractor I built. I used 15 inch Dodge caravan spare tire rims with 6.70x15 ag tires on them. This raises the tractor enough that you can put the narrow front on them and still have the tractor sit level. The B-10 has a h...
