Nice and very rare tractor!  The guy with # 2 always wished he had # 1!  Those are good garden tractors...really cool to have a tiller for it too!  Congrats on the find!

That is something special to have. #1. :thumbs:

I know you work your machines, but you might want to consider

moth balling this one, or at least baby it.

For this summer it's getting worked since my 1450 lost a motor and I haven't fixed it yet. Also my 1450 doesn't have a pto,(wrong driveshaft-no pulley) I'm going to have to work that out. My other 2-1655's don't run which leaves #1 to do the heavy work! Hopefully next year a restore for it!

I was in contact with the seller too, and told him I would come pick it up Friday, and that I needed worse than anyone else ;)

 

Oh well...if anyone has a 4850 tiller for sale, I'm interested.  And if anyone has a power steering retrofit, I'm interested. 

 

That unit wasn't up for 24 hrs and it had already been sold 20 times over.  Now put up some more pictures, and make us even more envious! :)

Very nice! I know the feeling if the 001 serial number as I found the 001 1650 by chance buying it sight unseen. It is a great thing to have the first one!

Well the weather has finally started to cooperate, I was able to spend some time in the garage after work last week. I changed all the fluids and greased all the zerks stole some parts from one of my other 1655's(that's waiting for the diesel conversion), gave her a tune-up and she purrs like a kitten! The pto works good and the power steering is in my opinion a must have! I will need to find a few more parts, dash mainly(mine is in horrible shape! ) here are a few pictures of the ps set-upuploadfromtaptalk1396924269520.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1396924294258.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1396924323973.jpg It's kind of hard to see but the ps cylinder hooks up where the drag link did in factory form and the other side of the cylinder is attached to a plate that is bolted on a cross member. Today after work I was giving the 4850 tiller a once over and found that the outer chain had skipped the sprocket and chewed up the driven sprocket a little, hopefully I can find a source for a new one. If not I think the chewed up one will work for this year anyway! My tiller doesn't have an idler sprocket just had some tensioner pads mounted on the plastic cover, no wonder the chain came off! Pictures of that fix to come.

Nice find. I would like to see some pics of how the steering cylinder is tied into the system.


  • Gabriel said thank you
