I just bought an 1855 MF and I am thinking about restoring it.
I emailed maple-hunter for decals and they told that they don't carry decals for an 1855 MF. Does anyone know where I can get any decals. Thanks for the help. I have already gained a wealth of knowledge from the site.

Are you wanting a complete full tractor set? Tony (Maple Hunter) carries hood side decals for a 1655. All he'd have to do is change the one numeral & be simple as sin. He only carries the hood set though..hood sides, and the 1655 little square in the grill. I could make the hood & fender decals, but can't make the ones with small text, like the driveshaft cover decal.

That would be great. The decals on the dash and driveshaft cover in useable shape. I was thinking about using the same paint scheme olcowhand used on the 1650 he restored. At the present time I am working on the 3pt. lift cylinder for the 1855. It is in pretty good shape for sitting in a field for the last 5 years. It also came with a Woods 3pt Finishing mower.

The other place you can try also is a dealer, you would be surprised what is still available.

olcowhand are you using just a cutter or printer/cutter for your decals.
