PostSubject: Bolens 1050 tubeframe snowplow build   Thu Sep 11, 2014 12:30 am

I have a bolens 1050 and i have no clue what year. Help would be grateful..  Pic will be up soon. But back to the point i am going to be upgrading the original bolens snow and dirt plow all whilst building a 3 point hitch for a project in my advanced metals class. I am super pumped to do this build and hopefully will be posting often.  I have already replaced the original 10hp wisconsin which was missing ignition parts with a 16 hp briggs single cylinder. Talk about power! I also need to figure out a way to stop the driveshaft from spinning when i push the clutch down. As i said before any help is awesome and I am grateful. This is also my first ever post.. So I am a forum newb... Smile

i am a big guy with the bolens tractors. i myself have a 74' Bolens 1055 (g10)

i know what you mean about the driveshaft not stopping. mine does it too. if its set up the same way as mine, there is a brake band right where the driveshaft meets the tranny. there should be a small cup bolted to the driveshaft and the band that would rub on the cup. its probably worn down like mine. you might be able to adjust it, but most likely not. a good place to source parts is sams bolens.

sounds like a cool setup. got any pics?

that go-kart brake, if you can find a place to mount it, and make sure it will run true, sounds like a good idea

yeah, i think there is a "waiting period" now.

as far as that go-kart brake, if you can find a place to mount it, and make sure it will run true, sounds like a good idea
. Do you know what kind of waiting period? Like 10 comments or 10threads or what?

that would work, just dont weld directly to the shaft. plan on replacing the carrier bearings at some point. i just had to do mine, and that intails pulling the driveshaft. weld onto it and youre going to have a bad time.

that is the same clutch setup as mine, and we have a VERY similar driveline. instead of the brake directly on the driveshaft, it looks like yours has an aux shaft out of the tranny for braking. very similar though

Well I went out to start the old beast, and she wouldnt start and started dumpin gas all over the ground! After pulling the carb apart, i found a giant hole in the float! I silver soldered the float, and now it works great! Who knew! And yes 1997 murray i will probably start a thread if the craftsman and probably the moline puller

are you going to use a hydraulic pump or are you going to use a hand lift for your plow?

The bolens will have a manual lift for the plow, probably hooked up to the old deck lift lever. And yes 1997 Murray I would probably just need the carb or float but that would be very helpful.
