Greetings to all Bolens owners and all tractors lovers. I first logged on back in 2010 and then had to suspend my Bolens restoration due to my wife's ill health. I did get my 1556 power washed, degreased and partially torn down. I did some wiring replacement and attempted to get the engine to turn over. When I hooked up the battery, it immediately blew the new fuse I had installed according to the wiring diagram. Apparently, I will need to do some major homework to correct this. Today, I became the proud owner of a Bolens 1600 Eliminator that actually runs great! There have been some modifications that side step a real restoration. I would be most appreciative for any direction in helping me learn about this model Bolens. Thank you! I'll get some pics on here soon!
