I bought a Bolens Estate Keeper from a friend over the weekend. He got it a while back and could not get it running properly.

The is the only EK I have ever seen in the flesh as they are a rare beast in the UK. To me, it looks original apart from the box under the seat and the angle iron on the engine cover. Someone has had a play with the wiring too.

I think it is a EK7 but unsure. Can anyone highlight where the ID plate should be?

Someone else will have to answer about the ID plate location.

The EK-7's were painted white and were Model 930-01 (1964), or Model 930-02 (1965 & 1966) and all models had the Wisconsin model S7D engines.

The EK-10's were painted yellow and were Model 931-01 (1966), or Model 931-02 (1967-'68'-'69) and all had Wisconsin model TRA-10D engines.

Here's the Owner's Manual: http://gardentractortalk.com/forums/files/file/2834-estate-keeper-owners-manual/

Parts manuals for the EK and attachments are in the Bolens Framesteer section of the Manuals forum.

Another nice find Iain. Better than the one up Bristol way. Hope you get it running sometime.

This is an EK7, should read model 930-01 on your ID tag located on the aluminum throttle control plate near the edge of the seat area.

This is a first year EK made 1964
This is great information. What are the difference between a 930-01 and a 930-02?

I think the ID tag is missing if it is on the control plate as this is where the electrical modification were started, with the key being replaced with a on/off switch and starter switch.

Thanks

Iain
