Have you tried your local Massey dealer for the engine mounts.

I got some for my 1450 a few years ago.

You know I haven't. I might give them a call next week. There might be a good set on the massey I'm getting from Bobby

On my Massey 1650 I repowered with a 20hp Onan, I took the rubber mounts out & replaced with solid.  Much better solid mounted I think.

I prefer solid mount. In my head rubber mounts are an excuse to build and install a less balanced engine.

I hate to say it, but try JD for the mounts. They used the same ones on several GT's.

 

They're not cheap!

 

On a side note, RTV has no business anywhere near a hydraulic system! What squeezes out on the outside is of no consequence. What squeezes out on the inside could be disasterous!

 

Fortunately, the filter is on the suction line for hydros. For other types of systems, standard practice is to put the filter on the return line leaving the system unprotected from hazards like RTV particles that can plug the small passages of relief valves and such.

The more and more I think about this tractor the more I think I'm going to keep it. The engine will be used to get one engine for the massey. This can be my experimental gt. The more and more I use these the more I like them. I've got that 14hp low hour engine I'm itching to use. I might take some measurements and see. I've got a spare 12hp kohler but I think it may be a hair under powered for this tractor. I dunno just brain storming aloud.

In the unlikely event that the tractor can find enough traction, and with aggressive use of the drive control, the hydro has the capability to stall a 12 hp engine at WOT. It most likely won't stall a 14 hp engine, but it will be a near thing.
