You sure are moving rite along on this project, nice work. You sure didn't skimp on tire choice either, very nice tire selection you made.


I’m trying, we just moved in February and my yard needs major help and this loader is the key to my success Lmao. I plan on keeping this tractor for a long time and figure I would get the tires I always wanted rather then buying cheap and regretting it.

Good call. I try to do that myself, but those 'stones were just too darned pricey for me. If there weren't so many large purchases over the last year or two, I may have got a pair as well. I hear they're the best in that type of tire. Hope they serve you well.
Great job on the tractor/loader thus far too.

I also am jealous of your tire choices. I wanna see pics of those on!
Which filter assembly is that? Is it the 3/4 NPT, return line housing?

Pictures will definitely fallows I need to dismount the old rear tires tomorrow at work.

It’s the 3/8 7 gpm return filter. My pump only does 6 gpm and the control valve is also only rated at 8 gpm so it should be fine.

Messed around a little. Started playing with the return line plumbing ordered 1/2” straight barb if I flip right angle on the control valve it’s almost a straight shot. Also cleaned and primed the wheels tires say they will be here tomorrow. Going to paint and clear coat them at work tomorrow.

Great parts! Nice to see someone really splurging on a Bolens large frame. This is going to be a really nice machine when you're done.  :thumbs:  I'm excited to see the end product. Thanks for sharing the project here and better yet, posting the photos of the nice parts to drool over.

Thank you the tires were definitely a splurge everything else is what’s needed to have a mechanically sound machine. I wish I had the patience to paint and do this like you did the 1886 but I just don’t have it in me lol.

Thanks Kenny. I tried rotating them. Using my computer and recently I just can’t get them straight.
