    I notice in other listing you refered to your tractor
    as Iseki TX2140 with Mitsubishi K3A engine.

    Do you have a true Iseki 2140 or a re-branded Bolens?
    Do you know what year you tractor was produced?

    Mine (Iseki Tx2140F) also has the K3A engine
    I'm under the belief the K3A/B engines were late 80s early 90s.
    and were never used in a Bolens re-brand Gear transmision tractor.
    But might have been used Bolens Hydrolic transmission.

    I have a Bolens G154. The nameplate says TX2140F and it has the 3 cyl Mitsubishi engine and geared transmission.

    Hi Dave,

    Glad to hear about your tractor! I think that I am going to eventually need my clutch done too, so I will have to also give him a call.

    This information and chart below help explain the Bolens/Iseki history, They stopped using the KE70/KE75 engines in 1981 with the horizontal stacks. I have one of the last built G154's from 1981, and then they switched engines. MY KE70 engine still runs like a litte tank. From buying parts off of disassembled tractors the only changes they made to the rest of the body was the new engines K3A, K3B, had longer hoods and the vertical pipes. The rest remained exactly the same on the tractors. This information is all from Sonnys Bolens:
    It's in the name.
    Example:
    G174 G = gear drive
    17 = horsepower
    4 = four wheel drive

    Thank Andrew,
    I've seen Sonnys info many times,
    But I've also heard guy say they have
    Isuzu and 3cly Iseki manufactured engine in their Tx1300 Tx1500.....
    I personal think they are confused.
    BTW: My older 1300 had a K70.

    Just got off the phone with Jim! I should be back in the saddle by the end of the month!

    I don't know when it was made other than I am guessing it is from the 80s per the cart above. I do not know if there is a serial number guide to tell me what actual year. My exhaust stack is vertical and the top of it swivels if hit by a branch. I believe it can be mounted horizontal if you look at the manifold.

Now I only need to find the brochures that came with the tractor...
    That is an impressive backhoe for the Bolens. My little G154 seems to be light in the front even when I have my tiller hooked up in the back, let alone a backhoe. How deep does it dig?
