I didn't know Massey's came with 2 stroke engines!  I think you have the oil ratio a little high!  :smilewink:

It burns a qt a hour. It just has to get me through finishing the garden work and final seeding. Here shortly I'll tear into the other engine and see what it needs.

I got all the electrical fixed except for a couple wires under the seat. These rear lights are bigger than I'd like but I think they look ok. I need side markers on my gts because I do drive them on the road. I chose these because the fit the factory holes. The sheet metal is good and I don't want to drill a bunch of holes.

Does this rod going over the rear turn when the engine is running? What's the cable that looks like a choke cable?

What would be something I could use for choke linkage? Coat hangers are to big. I need something with a smaller diameter.

I believe the cable is a safety linkage that prevents the range selector from engaging without the brake pedal pressed.

"Does this rod going over the rear turn when the engine is running? What's the cable that looks like a choke cable?"

 

 

 I'd say that the rod is your rear PTO drive shaft, so yes it'll be a turning item.

Sorry, I've never seen one with that "Choke cable", but could it be for engaging the

rear PTO? Or, considering the push/pull action, it may be a lock out or in for the

rear PTO. I see now the PTO engagement handle (to the right of the 2 red and white

wires taped together) going to that location.

 

 

 

Edit: Oops, I'm wrong there. That isn't the PTO handle by the wires. That's the

Lo N Hi lever. I've been looking through Agcopartsbook and I can't seem to find

that "choke cable"

Ill track it down. I like twosteps thought. Does the clutch petal need to be pushed in to engage the rear pto on these?

Man those headlights are BRIGHT! The tail lights look ridiculous though, come on Dave... Did the factory tail lights not work?

 

Regarding the cable, I'm pretty sure that if you push the brake pedal you'll see that cable moving some type of safety latch back there.

The factory ones didn't work and the backs were broken. I know they look bad but they give me side markers without having to drill a bunch of holes. I may bite the bullet, drill the holes, and put some decent leds there.

Aren't you like backwoods Ky, do lights really matter.....hahahaha Just kidding!

 

As for the big "rod" that would be your rear pto driveshaft, it should be turning all the time as it is directly bolted to flywheel. The engagement lever pushes on an idler puller which tightens belts in the back...at least on my 1855 it does.

 

My 1855 does have a safety switch on the rear pto so you can not start it if engaged.

Tahoe & twostep are correct.  But I've never owned or seen one with the cable lockout.

I think that is one of the differences between the 1650's and the 55's. The shaft attached to the flywheel goes to the hydro pump.

But in both cases (model series), that shaft spins all the time.

I hate this rear lights. Every time I walk in the shop I want to kick them out. They will be changed next week. Today when I used it the rod under the seat didn't move. I'm sure that's why the rear pto doesn't work. I haven't investigated any further.
