Not bad....I've got a '72 1254 with a Wisconsin on it. They're a tough little tractor, but I think they could have designed some things better. Just seems like there are more moving parts to wear out when compared to some of the other tractors I own. I hope you bring it back to its former glory...here's a pic of mine.

tried to get her running today with not much luck. Carb was the worst i have ever seen, totally gunked up. Got it clean but the seat for the needle was rotted and filled in the inlet for the gas. had to change all the fuel lines cause they were filled with molasses gas, lol. cleaned the tank, put new shut off on that. New fuel filter. so tonight i found an old seat that i had from something else and replaced the rotten one blocking the fuel line. Too late to run it. Oh yeah and also has a bad selenoid, have to jump it by the starter. BUT she did run for a few seconds when i put starting fluid too it. Ran about 5 times like that. Sounded good so still have hope for this thing. I'll post a vid on my youtube page of it running whenever that happens, lol.

Wow that was quick seeing as how you just got it! Lookin' alot better. I'd definitely say thats not the original engine, or something with the bracketry has been changed seeing as how the starter generator is in a different location than it originally was. I think I might get my Bolens fired up tomorrow if I have time...it hasn't ran since October last year.
