Hey guys, I could buy this '67 bolens for $100, possibly cheaper. I believe it has a 10 hp Wisconsin in it. I really love the looks of this thing, and I really like how HEAVY DUTY this thing looks, However it has no spark, I feel like it needs new points, and a new condenser. I think parts are just about impossible to get for this engine, so what do you guys think?? Worth it?

I would get it for that price! If you can't find parts then you can possibly swap in a different motor or something, right?

That is exactly what I was thinking. A motor swap would be work great, but where would I get a 10 horse horizontal shaft engine? I think $300 is a little steep for this one ( http://burlington.craigslist.org/grd/4499963011.html )

yeah i would definitely buy it for that price and put a different engine in it. Get a used engine which is cheaper or buy a parts tractor with the engine you want on it. thats what i would do. You might be able to get another cheap tractor and just use the engine out of it.

For that price, I'd be all over it. Can't go wrong there. If you can't get parts, just source another engine. Still a good deal.

You can find parts for bolens. But your have to go on a adventure. Ik that you still can because I had to buy a hole new fly wheel and other parts for mine. After you get her all straighten out I think you should make a romper or a puller. I made a completion mud bigger our of mine (74 g-14 with a 3 speed shaft trans and with a 14hp ohv)

I was thinking I could just get a HF clone, because it would cost about $300 with a 20% off coupon. I don't want another oppy because they are insane gas pigs, and I cant really afford that. A V-twin would work, but I can't find one cheap. I really want this thing, because of the limited slip rear. Too bad the guy wont email me back..

I called that guy with the oppy, and he said he could do $175 so that might actually be an idea...
