I am considering moving my 3 point from one Snapper 1650 to another Snapper 1650.  I know some of you guys have done this, has anyone posted photos and details on the process? Any threads already on here?

P.S. My newest acquisition was Snapper's latest Fan Share Friday.  You other guys need to submit a PM to Snapper's FB page.  I'd love to see more folks enjoy these tractors.

My 1855 didnt come with one and I had to buy one for it. The install isnt that bad. I started with the lift cylinder and hoses, then to the rockshaft and brackets, and finally the lower lift arms. The cylinder is 2 pins, one at the front and one on the rock shaft. The rockshaft brackets are 4 bolts, 2 on each side. Do one side at a time. The lower lift arms should just be the pins at the axles. I left the 3 PTh assembly together, except for the cylinder and and hoses. I installed them as a unit. My 1855 already had the extra valve in it with handle, the ports were capped. I can remember if I removed the seat pan or not, I think not but i aint sure.

Pretty easy swap, but I think I would remove the pan it's only 8 bolts including the 4 that hold the seat sliders on!  Removing the pan will make it way easier to deal with the lines!

The mechanics don't intimidate me much but the hydraulics do.  Do the lines leak off much when you pull them?  Do you have to bleed them like brakes?

The lines should bleed then themselves out. I swapped out a cylinder a few weeks ago abd just hooked it up and cycled it a few times and all was well.
