New Bolens 650 Pictures

Just taken some pics of the 650, just a few bits to do before restoration is complete. Need to get a new carb or a rebuild kit. Also the idler roller is really noisy, ideas anyone.

Nice looking machine Bernie It looks like it's been washed and waxed and well taken care of, I'd hate to get it dirty if I had it , for sharing.

Re: New Bolens 650 Pictures

Nice tractor there Bernie...
As for the idler roller, is it a pressed tin one?
If so, carefully drill the spot welds out and knock it apart. Your local friendly bearing factor should be able to fix you up with a bearing that'll fit (Did this on a POS, PITA MTD triple a little while back). The two halves can be rivetted back together if your careful. Sounds a bit extreme, but it does work...
Can see it happening to the 1254 this winter...
Cheers, Loopy.

Be safety conscious. 80% of people are caused by accidents.

Chaos, panic, pandemonium - my work here is done.
