I got the engine today and it is leaking from the PTO side thank goodness. I took all the john Deere PTO and exhaust stuff off. I noticed the oil pan is different. I don't remember is the Massey cradle bolted to the oil pan or the engine flanges. Hopefully the latter so I don't have to swap pans.

It wasn't the best running engine I hoped it to be...

It's running and half the seal is missing. I'm sure this is why the gt was parked years ago. I changed the flywheel so I could use the Massey adapter for the flywheel. New points and she kinda runs. The carb needs rebuild and I've got to order the seal. It doesnt smoke and seems like it will be a good running gal when the small stuff gets fixed.

A new to me carb and a home made linkage and its running pretty good. It has a big oil leak from the engine. Maybe from the oil pan I need a new gasket and front seal before I really get much further with it. The engine needs a good wash but its to cold to mess with it right now.

She did her first job. Pulled the cub from the graveyard to the shop. Sometimes under load it wants to die. I put it back in neatrual it runs fine. I would assume its a carb adjustment issue.


The more and more I look at her she gets less ugly.

Did some trading with twostep and got the 3ph. I've got to run to town and get a few pins but I'll have it installed today.

She's running but not as good as I think it should. It wants to randomly cut off or die. I ordered a carb rebuild kit and I want to fix some wiring in the ignition. I can't wait till spring to play with this massey more.

Id like to have some 26" tires. Got the hitch installed. One of the side adjustment arms is bent. I'll need to fix that soon as I need to adjust the lower arms up more. I went ahead and added my sleeve hitch adapter because I'm tired of kicking it around.

Take the wheel horse axle bracket

I welded some ears and I should get it mounted here shortly

Not a stock Massey of Snapper Dozer blade you have there.  What kind is it and did it need modified to work on the 1650?

 

Thanks,

Reg

It's off a wheel horse. I had to modify the bracket a bit. The blade will need to have the blade angle lever moved. It didn't clear to I just cut it off. more to come on the blade install. In the above pictures I just threw it on so I could level the garden. It will need modified so I can get the angle to work. I'll also need fab a lift rod. It needs to be solid as the massey has float on its mid hydraulics.

Looking good. You may want to watch out with that adapter. When I have the adjusting links run up, so I can get the highest lift, my plow frame butts into the adjusting rod and bends it.

Got a couple kits I'm the mail. Hopefully I can get them installed this weekend. I ordered two carb kits. One is a full rebuild one is a partial. I'm still not for sure which one I'll use. When I swap the oil pan gasket I'll probably pull the balance gears as well.

I went to the shop today and have a ton of oil under her. I know the crank seal is leaking. I also think the oil pan is leaking as well. Would you just replace those or pull everything apart and use most off the gaskets in this kit?

A ton of oil sounds more like a crack in the pan, or drain plug is leaking.  I'm not sure if oil stands above the oil pan gasket or not.  Never needed to know, or thought to pay any attention to whether it did or not.  If oil does sit above the pan gasket, then it could leak a substantial amount.  If not, then there is another issue besides a gasket.

That's a week's worth. I didn't have a gasket when I put the pan on. The old one was OK. Well somewhat OK I guess. I would assume that's the issue.
