Default Bolens garden tractors parts-a-plenty

Just wanted to give some info,
1970's and some 80's bolens tractors have many great parts .
Horizontal engines fuel pumps, the gear tractors have a nice solid peerless gearbox. And even a right angle gearbox hidden under the centre. And the mower deck also has a right angle gear box!!
Just sayin if you see one cheap scoop it up.
I have 3 myself.
Also the older bolens weren't able to be pushed while in neutral but this doesn't mean the gear box is cooked. There's a hub lock which most people don't know about or just forgot.
Just wanted to share for you diy's who don't like spending too much $$$ plus it's like recycling.
