Well guys its been quite a while since I have posted, and to say the least, the bolens has changed. Different tires, different engine, many different exhausts, new lights, new rear bumper, winch, air pump, peerless 820, plow attatchment.. the list goes on..[img:9213]https://i.servimg.com/u/f59/18/59/60/95/bolens10.jpg[/imBolens Build - Page 5 Bolens12Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens14" border="0" alt=""/>g]Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens11Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens15Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens16Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens17Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens18Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens19Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens20Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens21Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens22Bolens Build - Page 5 Som_co10

Well the 25hp Intek was worn out, rings had over 1/8" ring gap. using oil like crazy and compression was very low. So I put in a 20hp Intek that I got off of a free MTD I found on the side of the road a couple miles from my house. I drained the oil and it had way too much, smelled really gassy. I took off the shroud and there was the reason for the gassy oil, a mouse nest and a plug wire chewed in two. So they must have use it running on one cylinder for quite some time and the fuel for that cylinder was just washing through the rings.. Put a coil off my 25hp and it runs beautifully, after a carb clean of course. I also ran an addition onto my exhaust. It runs all the way up around the rear fenders. Just a little update, pictures to come.

I just get lucky I guess. lol. I only have 2 inteks. and one vanny that is mine. Then two opposed and four singles and an inline twin Suzuki motorcycle engine. Ive come across 3 820s too. kept one, got my cousin one and got my pretty much brother in law one. I just take advantage of a good deal when I can find one.

Well it didnt last long being unbroken.. I let Chris ride it and BOOM! flips it. Breaks off the exhaust. Thank God the engine is fine. So I just threw on some stock pipe from another engine since it fit and didnt interfere with anything. I will build a new one, probably tomorrow.

Here is after the wreck..Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens39
Pipe I threw on just so we could ride, we were pulling around a sled..Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens41
Then started on the front bumper. Had some bumper my grandpa made a while back for his quad i think and cut the ends down..Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens42
Welded two pipes on it so i can weld them to my mower but ran out of weldeing wire before i could finish. So more pics tomorrow!!Bolens Build - Page 5 Bolens43

I know you are free to do whatever you want, but... KEEP CHRIS OFF THAT THING!

Not gonna lie, but I was searching for a new romper to build and saw your build and liked the Bolens. Then, just so happens my good buddy had the exact same tractor. Naturally, we worked out a deal and I eventually built my own Bolens. You pretty much inspired my build man, thanks.
