If someone would like to associate names with the numbered items please do so. I'm sure some of us would appreciate it.:smile1:

I agree, we are the only ones with 14/16's. I have figured out a few things on my own and should have the tiller up and running very soon so that I ccan began planting my winter crops in my garden. I'm a transplanted yankee from NYC. I'm well aware of where you are...2 COOOOOOOOLD!!!
I have friends in Newburg and Goshen..I only visit during the summer months. : )

I agree your not alone...I too am trying to get my 550 working. On mine the tiller seems to turn fine, but I don't have the "belly pan". Someone before me must have lost it....not sure. Anyway, does anyone know if this tiller will operate (in the dirt) w/o it?

OK !!
Maybe we can give one another some help with the tiller hookup on the 14/16's. I have the same as you (16)..I think the rear hookup is a bit differant than for the 14. Do you have any straight on shots of your rear hookup?

Don't think it would work very well without the belly pan. If you look closely at my pan you can see the guides for the belt. Dirt getting into the tillers drive wheel would also be an issue. I think the medal for the pan could be fabricated at home..its not very thick. If you need demensions let me know.

Some dimensions would be great if you get a chance....I think maybe some good pics of how the belt is retained in the pan would also be a great help. It doesn't look too difficult to fab...may take some time though..

Thanks for the help!

If you don't have the tools, that pan can be fabricated in just a few minutes at any local sheet metal shop and would look like it was original. Then you could all the attachments easily at home. Just a thought.

ThankU 4 the photos..they always speak better than many words. I had actually removed the cylinder and mounted the tiller directly to the axle mounts. I do not have that hitch for the rear plate..I'll see if I can locate something like that tomorrow @ Agri Supply or tractor supply. Thanks again for your help. I'm beginning to see the light! : )
