I'll try to put some pix of my rig on here. Need to get my count up on posts. Got this late last fall, put blade on for winter. Used once or twice with this warm winter we are having. Would like to re-furbish whole tractor, get it "loosened" up more on controls and adjustments of same. Finally got the pedal a big easier with lubing and adjust, still not as new I don't believe. Nuetral being hardest to find/keep in place. Even the Wife liked this one! That's a Good start. :smile1: New Snapper rider 011.jpg

Nice ride! Currently refurbing mine, hope to get it back up in the next month or two. I like the gauge wheels on the front of the deck. When you step on the brake pedal it should put the tranny in neutral. The manual for the 1855,1650 is in the manual section here, it covers the neutral adjustments. If the hydro pedal is stiff, I used alot of PB blaster and just moved the pedal back and forth, spray, back and forth, repeat. I used the spray to flush the gunk out of the bushing.

Welcome to the group! That is a good looking 1650 you have there. They are well built, tough, hard working tractors. There are quite a few members with that model tractor here. I have 2 1650's, both with 42 inch snowblowers on them right now. I sure like my 1650's!

Going to try to find/make a 3pt for mine this summer. I only have a single spool control, but have a dash with slot for another lever to go thru. Is this a simple add-on or quite a chore? Parts book shows steel tubes running back to control box. Will I need diff control levers (double) or can I add to my single? Anyone have a parts tractor for any of this stuff and wanna sell parts? I'm betting price of hitch is high, compared to others I have looked for like Case ones and Power Kings. Sorry for big print, just messing with the options on the site and trying diff stuff!

Your single spool is actually a two spool just capped off,so all you need to do is add a lever and replace the caps with lines and cylinder.I think Joe's outdoors has a 3pt hitch on Ebay right now (3 -4 hundred bucks) I think.Hope this helps you out!

Nice 1650. I had an extra 3 point but have installed it on my MF14. Keep an eye open and you'll find a parts tractor somewhere. You'll love the 1650.

I have as Massey 1650 that I modified. They are very stout machines, and with a 3pt, very versatile also! Not major adding the 3pt.

Spools there, cool! I'll check that out. I finally downloaded the manual in 2 parts here. Pictures come up kinda dark, but diagrams seem good. I couldn't seem to just Save the file in my puter, but it allowed me to print the whole thing if I wanted. SO, that's what I did. Still putting it in sleeves and ring binder. That takes awhile. Then have to look thru it and study some. Most times when I find tractors all the good stuff is gone. Maybe a Craigslist Wanted ad will work?

Craigslist worked! Was offered a 3pt, real complete with all the smaller parts/lines, etc. It's in OK tho and might be big ship bill, but I said I would take it. Looks like most of it mounts outside. Where do lower arms go at tractor? Can't find a picture with details. These have a tab on rears like some? I'll have to go out and look at mine again. Or, is there holes in side of chassis with beefing? Looks like cylinder and lines/hoses are only items inside body? Will spend summer working on restore, more painting/clean-up than anything else. I'll put it on then. Can't decide if I want to go the AG tire look or leave them as turfs. Not sure if mowing deck is going back on either.
