    Working on getting this RAM going that I had picked up a few years ago. The versa-matic drive is a bit froze up and I'm in the process of switching from magneto ignition to battery ignition. I'm hoping to find some info on the cvt style sheaves for the versa-matic drive.

    I've got a mowing deck that came off of a 1959 Bolens Ride-a-Matic. The deck shell is solid and the gearboxes are in good condition. The sheet metal on the ends of the deck are rusted through in some places, but could be replaced. Asking $40.00. Local pick-up in Shippensburg, PA, or...

    I went through my GT collection this fall and found some parts that I no longer need and would be better going to someone that could use them for their project or otherwise. Local pick-up around the Shippensburg, PA area, or buyer to pay shipping if applicable. Bolens Tube Frame Cover/Shift...

    Hi, I am trying to replace the drive belts on my 1962 Ride-a-matic and the replacement belts I bought appear to be too short. The versa-matic is not working as it should and I still have drive in the park position. Looking at the parts manual the belts are stated as 29" and 35" but flagged as...

    I posted in one of the other threads about us getting this thing running and realized I don't think we ever posted pictures of it. I had a chance this weekend to get a few pics and took a small video for a walk around and of it running. We knew the motor would turn over when we got it but that...

    Hello, I just bought a Bolens ride-a-matic and was wondering if anybody can tell what the sizes of the 2 belts are? Was told it was a 1956 model.

    I am not sure if dad had posted pics of this Ride-a-Matic yet. This is the newest model they made with the knuckle looking grill. Currently we have the motor off and starter generator. Going to take the starter up to get rebuilt by a local shop. I think the motor is going to fire pretty easily...

    We have owned a Bolens Ride-A-Matic with mower and rotovator for about 30 years, and we intend to get it going again after having been in storage with the back end in bits for 18 years. I would like to know the year of it, but there is no serial number plate unless I have missed a stamped...

    So, en route between my place and my parents place, I noticed a yard of old tractors. Mostly from the outside, it all looked like Craftsman and other box store tractors, but I thought I should stop and peak over the fence to see if there was anything worth looking at. Sure enough, there sits a...
