Evening: I have the pleasure of working on a BOLENS G294, And did the e-bay search for a repair manual,
didn't find anything, it appears to be equal/replaced by an ISEKI TS2810?, but nothing found there either.
Tried the most common supplier was Reliable Tractor Parts, but nothing in their stock for either model.
Has anyone got a source or a copy to part with?
The main reason its here is for front wheel drive repairs[ front drive shaft not turning], so parts will
be needed, a parts source if possible, a real long shot would be a Canadian source..LOL
tks

If the drive shaft has a cover over it pull the cover back. On the ends of the shaft there are coupliers than can be slid back to remove the shaft. These are held in place y a snap ring on the shaft side of the coupler. Check to see if that snap ring broke and the coupler slide back. My neighr had a Bolens 20 some h and his quit working and that is what I found on his. These snap ring are metric and regular ones will not work as we tried. Find out the size and see if White rebranded one the same size and you can get parts thru ACGO. I think they we all made by Iseki

Tks guys, I had forgot about Sam"s, will try there in the morning, Yep there is a cover on the shaft, as someone has either taken the coupling out on the front end or its slid back, as i can see the gap between the two.
Haven't planned on crawling under to look close until I had a manual.
The WHITE crossover might be a good lead also, will be interesting to follow leads for parts, so far FAWCETT Tractor has nothing in the Bolens line.

I don't think you will find anything for Bolens but there should be an Iseki model numer on there someplace. Go to the Iseki form and ask on there I am sure someone may help you. There is one guy on there that is an Iseki dealer and has a lot of older parts

Try AGCO. That tractor was sold by White as the 2-30. There were some differences, but not many. The Oliver/White dealer I was parts manager for sold Bolens also and we had machines out in both color schemes. You will find many of the parts are salvage only. Search for West Kentucky Tractor Parts, and Weavers.

I just thought od something else to check. My neighbors was a 24 hp and he had problems with the front axle breaking by putting to much load on it. It snapped off just behind the splines

Evening: Got into a few of the sites mentioned, and still no manual, but getting closer..The up date to a non working front end drive, was solved in a 2 minute crawl under the machine, here's the list..:)

Front end bolts to engine block: both top bolts and holes stripped
Someone welded the axle mount and engine block together on the left side, in same area, now broke clear.
Front axle leaning backwards by about 1 inch,
Cross tie rod between front wheels, has been re-enforced with 1.5 angle, welded on.
Front axle input shaft spline stripped.
Front axle, drive shaft spline coupling, missing.
Front axle, drive shaft itself missing,
Front drivesahaft cover, unable to remove due to longer tube section welded onto it.
Transmission output housing, brazed onto its mount.
Suspect the splined coupling is missing also on the transmission output end.
Possibly front axle swivel bushings wore out as the start of the whole situation?

Tks for the help guys, the owner says to look for parts and attempt to attach the front end, "properly" if it can be done then worry about the four wheel drive.
