Hi folks, new member to this forum but have been reading for a few months. I am in the final stages of a Bolens 1050 restoration. This is my first ever attempt at restoring a tractor.

Still a few loose ends to tie up (that seat is just sitting on there) but she does in fact run. I drove it out of the shed under it's own power just before snapping this pic.

Thanks for looking and thanks for all the advice that I have found over the past several months.

While I'm here, does anyone have or know where I can find a rototiller lift link for this tractor? ebay has had a couple but I always get outbid.

The lift link for your tiller is the same as the one used for the snowblade attachment and the snowblower attachment. .....The link for the tiller was painted red, like the tiller. .....The link for the snowplow & snowblower matched the yellow color of the attachment.

Lift links for the later attachments may be a different color, but if the attachment was for the tube-frames, the lift link will be the same.

Yes the lift link for the tiller is longer then the one used on the front mounted attachments. We just found that out when we hooked the tiller up on dad's 800.

I believe I got the belts from www.mfgsupply.com. It was one of the first things I ordered and that goes back over a year so my memory is a bit hazy. I just googled the part # and their site came up. I was curious what the red belts would look like but kind of took a chance since this model has other red accents. They definitely stand out but I don't think they look too bad.

Sorry, guys! ......I was wrong when I said the lift links were all the same! ......Thanks for correcting me!

It's good that I learn something new everyday, because I forget something old everyday!

On the upside, as you get older, you don't remember having forgotten LOL!

Nice looking tractor and welcome to GT talk. This is a great, truly friendly place to share and ask questions. Not nearly as rigid as some other sites and a lot more humor here, not all of it good but at least there is more. :)
