I ended up buying that reel mower I posted about. It needed a little work but nothing serious and the price was right. It had a cracked wheel on one of the casters and a worn out inside "bearing" on one side. I got the wheel from Sonny's, ordered two since the other can't be far behind as far as cracking and was told the "bearing" was NLA. I called Ray's in PA. and they had some in stock NOS at $5.85 each. So I got two of those. I was glad to find them since they aren't actual bearings but more like a grooved retainer. Overall the mower is complete and in decent shape with some surface rust. Next I plan on breaking it down and sandblasting it and then priming and painting. Will probably use a self-etching primer and then paint it the original green and replace the decals. I really don't plan on using it, but felt it would be a nice addition to my collection. The reel mower was made for about 18yrs and the last Bolens catalog to list it was 1967, the same year as my 1050. This seems like it was one of the last as the color and decals are the same as my 42" rotary mower.
