Today on my 11 k bike ride home from school i stopped at the old farts small engine shop and i was looking around and i seen a belt guard out the corner of my eye i picked it of the shelf and it was green and nos the closer i look there is all kinds of bags that say bolens fmc the more i looked there was linkages brake bands special clips and just a guess the extremely hard to find u-joint bearings and other stuff i tryed to buy it all but he did not want to sell
i did get the guard tho for (break the bank) 2 bucks sure hope he would like to sell it all will try to up load a picture of the guard its new and powder coated dark green its for a tube frame it appears to be all late model parts

Did he have a price in mind?
Money talks... If your offer is reasonable he just may sell them
i was going to say put any thing in a box and i will make a offer my guess is that if he put all the parts together if will fill a 8x8x8 inch box but some parts are worth more then others if its all rare stuff offer $50 and up ... judging what it is if its the rare u joint kits there $50 alone what do you buy Nos stuff at ... this is the first time i have found nos bolens parts around here

Nice!
You got some great stuff there

I'd say the best items in the lot were the NOS brake shoe,Fuel cap and double belt guard.
Those fuel caps were used on Estate Keepers, Largeframes, Small Frames and a few others. These caps were also made by Wisconsin and had part number RC77.

Hopefully you learned something too. He probably can teach you alot if you help and talk to him. The parts last awhile but the lessons are for a lifetime. Good Luck
