Super Versa matic pickup

I did some trading today. I traded two wagner garden tractors for a Wheel Horse C175 with a deck and snow blower. And a great little Bolens Super Versamatic. The Bolens was owned by the gentleman's grand father. It's in really nice shape as well as the reel mower. Here's the pictures.

When they are sharpened and adjusted properly the reels cut great

There are two nuts on the head bolts one set holds the head on the top one holds the hood on.
The chrome is original for that model
Those old Kohlers are very durable and wouldn't surprise me if it fired up with minimal effort

Anyone know if the bolts holding the hood on had torks heads and was the chrome on the side of the hood original?
If your talking about the 5 screws that hold the sheet-metal hood to the cast grille, they were originally "self-threading screws."
They would have been Phillips head or slotted screws. .....If you have Torx or hex-headed screws, they have been replaced.
As Brian said, yes, the chrome strips are original.

The plan is to take the C175 to the camp for mowing there. I have a spare 19 hp ready to go in the 175 should the 17 head south.

Very nice Versamatic. They are pretty powerful little machines. Yours appears to be complete.
