Was given the parts tractor to me a while back & just now getting around to picking it up. It's a partial MF14. Hydro was fine, as it was parked after the Kohler made it's self a crankshaft "view window" in it's block. The hydro's input shaft is near perfect condition, not the typical wear you see on many older ones. I've not made up my mind whether to save for a spare hydro for my 1855, or to fit it to my future diesel Bush Hog JB project, as the Bush hog diff is single speed, and I love the 2 speed diff on these Peerless rear ends.
Either way, it's at it's new home now! And free is hard to beat! From time I left home till time it was at my place was slightly under a 1/2 hour......it was just 4 miles from me.
Used to have 3pt hitch...sure wish that was still on it!!!!!!

Can't beat free Daniel. I like the two speed rears also. Would be awesome if the 3 pt was still on it.

Free is a good price. It's nice you can use what is left there.

The 1855 and the 14 use the same hydro? but a different rear, or is just the hub different?

Same hydro, but different rockshaft that controls speed/direction, plus the axles are different between the 14/16 and the 50 & 55 series. Swap the rockshafts out & you're in business with the hydro itself. On this project, I can use the 14's hydro as-is.
The 14/16 have straight keyed axles, while the 50 & 55 series have tapered keyed axles. That will be my problem, as the 6 bolt rims won't come close to fitting the 14's hubs. If I go the MF rear end route, I'll likely make hub adapter plates. Lots more tedious work, but do-able.

I would love to Bob, but can't on this trip. The Wife is coming with me, and if I tell her I'm adding another 2hrs+ to the trip, I'll get scalped! But for future reference...how much for that diff? I bought those hubs for the JB's axles, as with a slight modification, they fit the JB axles perfectly. I'm thinking way ahead on this diesel project, but that's how I roll I reckon. I just think with a diesel I would be much happier with the 2 speed rear end. When I plowed with my JB with the TJD engine, I know it would have done better with a hi/lo rear end set to low. That allows the hydro to run at a higher speed, which is lots easier on it.
Don't you have any business near Willamsport this Saturday? :D I know you'd love to just be able to bring it to Williamsport Bob. BTW....how's the arm doing?

Daniel... You need the tapered shafts to fit a keyed straight shaft? Is there enough to have the tapered hubs bored out and a key-way cut into them? If it's too big, you could still have a sleeve installed into the hub once it's bored out. Just a thought for a nice clean look.

Yes, there should be plenty of room to bore them out, and I could mill them myself, but putting the internal keyway would be very hard if not impossible for me to do. I have cut internal key slots before, but short ones. These are over 2 1/2" deep, maybe 3". I could always have my neighbor do them at his large machine shop. But I'd rather have that diff that Bob has! This project is miles away though, so maybe I'll just get up to Bob's place before I need the hubs on. I can use the diff I have to get all the mounts, driveshaft, & controls worked out, then put the correct diff in later.
