Hello everyone, I'm new here. Went to a sale last sat. & came home with a 1450 Massey Ferguson. Should have it running this weekend if my carb kit comes in. It doesn't have a mowing deck with it but it does have pto on rear with what looks like hyd remotes on rear fender. Should I try to find deck for it or just build my own. Was even thinking about making a pull type pto driven with wheels & cylinder to raise & lower it? How big should the deck be on this mower? Thanks in advance!!!

You could get either a 42" or 48" deck with the tractor. View Parts List

Welcome to GTT! You could also build a 3pt finish mower from a belly deck. Here's one I built. http://gardentractor...inish-mower-r19

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the welcome. I have two 7's & an 8 that I've had a while but haven't done anything with yet. It's hard to get to everything. I really like the design on the 1450 but I would really like the deck that belongs on it. It doesn't have 3 point on it. Would be interested if anyone has that or a deck they don't need. If I can get it fixed up nice it might replace 2 cubs & a white, no offense to anyone.

1450 is running now, smokes a little but not too bad. Can anyone tell me where the pto is driven from. Looks like there is a shaft above the transmission to drive it but it's missing. Can't tell what drives that shaft.

There is supposed to be a double sheave pulley on the hydro driveshaft that drives the pto shaft via twin 1/2" V-belts. The upper pto shaft has an adjustment system to tighten the belts.

Hi, welcome to forums. There is a section on this site to download Massey manuals. Sounds like you need that. Have to post a few times to work up the "right" to download, but won't take long. I just printed one right off the sight. Lots of manuals on epay all the time also. Parts Manuals show blow-ups of the parts for all accessories, including hitches and drives. I have a 1650 and just got a 3pt for it. Will be pulling the snowplow soon and working on putting that on now that it is warmer. As Noted, "We need pictures!"

Thanks Olcowhand, that's what I thought but the pulley is missing on the hydro drive & so is the upper shaft. What part of Ky you from? I'm in Maysville, 1 hr north of Lexington. That's a nice looking 3 pt mower you built.
