You're welcome. I don't own any Bolens yet but I would like to get a large frame when I have space available. I really like the shaft drive design. It's a much cleaner look (and I imagine much stronger) than tons of octopus belts.

Maybe this should be a sticky. It's gotten a lot of downloads.

Yes the shaft drive system is great. On the tubeframe the drive shaft has a two belt sheave on it, two belts go from that sheave up to the sheave on the engine. Those are the only belts involved in the drive system. They are very easy and inexpensive to replace and never ever slip. The large frame is direct drive from the engine to drive shaft on back to the hydro. Both are great machines. Thanks again for the manuals. I downloaded them but have not looked at them all yet.

I don't suppose you have one for a Universal 640DT tractor. I've been looking for a quite awhile now, can't find a free one anywhere. There is one on Torrents though. I might have to break down and spend some money. Thanks, NorminN.B.:thThumbsU
