I asked this before but didn't have the numbers on the machines. The tractor itself is:H16/model 1656.

OH160 engine. The tiller number is/18614   01. My question is this. What drive shaft do I need. The tiller has a round shaft about 3/4 in diameter with a 1/4 keyway. It looks to me like either there is a part missing from the tiller. Or it hooks up different than I thought.

Part number for the driveshaft is: 1713 550

 

That same driveshaft is listed for the 18609, 18610, 18614, and 18616.  It's possible that it works with the 18608 as well, but I don't have the 18608 parts manual.

 

The 'round back' tillers, 18609 and 18610 have a separate driveshaft listed for use with the 600.  It's part number is 1713 549.

Part number for the driveshaft is: 1713 550  Also known as #18612 on the Attachment/accessory list.

(The model 600 tractors needed a different length driveshaft, but used the same u-joints as the other tube-frames.)

Ok I now have a pretty good idea of what I need. Did a search on it. $159.00 Are you kidding me. I only paid $125.00 for the tiller. Anyone got a good used one cheap.
