MF 1655 I bought 5 years ago. I repowered it with a Honda GX670 with heavy modification to make that engine work in the tractor!
I then converted the mower deck......found and modified an new RM60 60" ingersoll mower deck and have used it for 2 years with great success. Luke

Oh yeah, I added this brace, to stiffen up the steering column. I like to pull my butt off the seat,

 

 

 

Great idea!! The column on my 1855 is pretty loose, for that exact reason.  I think I'm going to copy this.

Glass like finish.  Impressive.  Where did you pick up the center cap emblem on your steering wheel?  Don't suppose you kept the snow blade when you traded?

Thanks!!  The center emblem was on it when I got the tractor...not sure where it came from?  I wish I would've kept the snow blade and sold it to someone who would really appreciate it.  Unfortunately, I let it go in the trade. 

 

The guy I traded the MF 1650 to just listed it for sale though.  He's a wheeler-and-dealer kind of guy, so I'm sure you could work something out with him.  The only downside, is he's in Delaware...  http://delaware.crai...3923580224.html

 

 

Also, maybe you could check with this guy, and see if he'd part with the blade.  It's not terribly far from you, and his price for the whole package is really good!  http://cincinnati.cr...3882213903.html

I've had these pictures on here before.  Here are some pictures of my 1855 at the Redneck plow day in SC this year.

^^^ That's one of my favorite 1855s ever.  Did you stack two sets of wheel weights on the rears?  Any chance you have a part number or a source for these?

I need to get some better pictures, but here's my "mowing" mower.  It's an 1855A with an Onan P220G repower.  Dad and I recently went through the deck and rebuilt it.  We added some anti-scalp wheels, a couple track bars, and some dangling bush-hog style chains on the grass exit.  I'll have to get some better pictures, but here's a few for now.

I believe those are John Deere weights painted silver mist.  Looks like "Jinma" weights up front.

I picked up this 1650 and parts snapper 1650 a couple of weeks ago. They have been abused but have good sheet metal and the more I look at that MF, the more I like it. Now I just need to get one of the two K341's running and try it out.
