    I'm trying to piece together bits of info on the Food Machinery Corp. (FMC)'s transition into the Bolens Huski Ridemaster. The 1st FMC Model A was introduced in 1946 in the color of red. I have no written info on the color of the wheels. I have seen yellow, red, black and white. Does anyone...

    Hi gang, I started digging into my 850 I acquired several months back to see what I can find out of why the clutch doesn't work. So far all parts seem to be there according to the parts diagram. Now, I read on how to adjust. Here is where my confusion comes in. "CLUTCH ASSEMBLY (3-SPEED...

    Started on the 42" snowblower (Bolens model 1330) for the Bolens - Iseki G152 this evening. It needs some tweaking to the guide/skid pads. They won't let the blower's cutting edge drop all the way to the ground. The auger paddles have been beat up pretty bad. There is a half inch gap from...
