Hello and welcome. The model of your engine would help. If it's a TRA-10D I have seen engine gasket kits on ebay. I bought a rebuild kit for my carb from Sam Bolens. He is very helpfull if you need parts for your tractor. I think Hastings still makes rings for that engine Part number #235. I hope this helps you.

Welcome!

We would love to see some pictures of your Tractors when you get a chance!


Believe it or not, there still are a ton of wisconsin engine parts out there, just not to many people are selling them anymore.

You can try ebay, or our site sponsor Bob : http://bobsgardentractors.com/

Thanks for the info sieborg400, I have dealt with sam in the past, real nice guy. I bought the decal set for the h16 I restored from him,they were spot on. Sam seems like the go to guy for most things.

He definitely is the go to guy for decals. No one else's reproduction decals even come close to the quality of his and in my opinion are worth every penny.

Thanks bolens 1000, I need to take the time to figure out how to get the pictures on the site. Believe it or not, Bob is only about 15 miles from me. I have bought some used parts for my H16 resto i did last summer from him. Guess i didnt think about him for motor parts.Just guessing from your user name you might replying to my post alot on my new 1000 resto. Addicted to the bolens thing already. OH Well, could be doing worse things with my spare time.

The Bolens 1000 was the first Bolens I ever drove and it was originally my Grandfathers, which is the reason why I like the 1000 so much


These Bolens are definitely addicting, so you better make sure you have some room for a few more
