Hello everyone, Currently I have had many projects/jobs going, and the biggest one lately has been preparing for the white stuff. Over the last few weeks I've kinda got that squared away, so I started tinkering with the bolens fleet again. "The Mutt" project is coming along, I just have to snap some pictures and update that thread hopefully this weekend, and I also decided to pull the mower off the big ht20 I picked up. The previous owner stated that he could never keep the belt on the deck. It would constantly throw the belt, so I thought I would start there. While pulling the deck I found some issues that need attending. The motor is a bit damp with engine oil on the underside- any commom seals or leaks on these motors I should look at 1st before I really tear into it?? Also the pto bearings seem to be loose/shot. I can wobble the pto pretty good up and down after I removed the pto shaft. I also knew the muffler pipe was bad, but now found a broken stud where the exhaust bolts too, and the others aren't looking to healthy either. Lastly, the deck throwing the belt problem I was told could be the whole deck housing. A guy told me that the large deck housings would warp, or flex, and I would never get the belt right without fixing/repairing the deck shell. Im certainly hoping thats NOT the issue. Any suggestions or help with the above issues would be great, Thanks everyone!!
