    nice wheel horse marc! one of these days im going to get an 854. anyway thats a 1958 bolens ride a matic. it was the cadillac of garden tractors in its day as it came with all sorts of attachments i will list them all later if anyone would like. i just got this and its been sitting for quite awhile but its getting ready for a complete resto. i have a large county fair coming in august and im going to get it running and pull it just the way it looks now.(other than new tires belts etc..) hope you like. :)

    I'll have to take a look. Ive been on several wheel horse email repeaters and have had no luck with the tank. I don't mind that it seeps, I never have to wory about stale gas...
