This is the beast that mike took over the cliff. It seized up maybe 10 minutes after he rolled it. Sean was driving it at that point. So i rescued the beast with the tow truck that is now at drews. no more easy rescues like this one. at least for a while.
This bolens does work again. Its hard to pull it when its cold, but after it starts, and warms up, you can shut if off and it spins normally again. till it cools. but it still runs perfect and all. Maybe a little less power.
My New WHITE Tractor - Getting It Running
I just watched a video from Lowrida3369 last night, and his Gilson was 5 lug in the back, with the dished in rims, so i'm pretty sure MTD made gilson and whites. and most likely the montgomery wards as well. At least from the time period when these were built.
I like this tractor for sure. for a vertical shaft tractor, its actually pretty strong, and seems well made. And as always, i like the twin cylinder briggs :) The economy opposed twin cylinders. (because they are cheaply built opposed twins, not economy on fuel consumption, they really suck it down) But they do pretty awesome. And if you have alot of extra gas laying around, they can take care of that fast :)
Bolens 1050, resurected after 4 years
I finally decided to get this 1050 going again. i bought it a few years earlier... for get how much. maybe 100 bucks? 1966, FIrst year of the 1050's. so it had a TR-10D engine, with a magneto, instead of a 12V coil. one of the people who owned it before me, painted the whole thing, and got a new hood for it, that said, G10, which was a way later model tube frame. same bassic thing, but with alot of minor differences, steering wheel, shifters, body panels, that kind of thing. so i put a 1050 hood on the beast, to give it some of its dignity back! :) then it ran out of gas or something in the creek, and i left it there, for a long time. it filled up with water, eventually it got drug out, and the water in the block froze, cracked it.
then i did all this.
the clutch was stuck together, so it just drove in gear. i spent 3 or 4 hours, Taking the whole long driveshaft/clutch assymbally out, and takeing all the rusted solid parts off the thing, a wirebrushed, and greased everything back to normal. so now! it works. after this video. we were romping it too. but it needs some belts, its only got that one dryrotted one from the video, and thats gonna let us down soon i'm sure. its an excelent bolens now though! :)

Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be dead in minutes!
