Hey Luke, I just found your post here. I just purchased a Snapper 60377 that I want to mount on my MF 1655. It looks like I am missing all of the lifting mechanism though. Does this blower lift with the mower deck cylinder?

Yeah glad u found the post.......see the attached pictures.
Yes, the blower lifts with the same cylinder as the center mount deck. The mechanism is pictured above......the spout crank mounts off the side of this same lift mechanism iirc......been a long time since I've had mine installed!
Good luck

Okay, I may be asking you more questions as time goes on. The unit I bought came with no lifting mechanism parts. I'm guessing I will have to fab everything up by hand unless I would get really lucky and find the parts I need.

Where u located?
If your not far you could use mine as a pattern........might be easier than trying to fabricate from scratch!?
Chances of finding just the parts you need are slim to none unless you buy another whole complete blower......don't think anyone would split up a complete unit!? But I've been wrong before! Lol

I'm in PA, that may be a bit far to travel. My buddy is pretty good at fabricating things up but if we can at least get a general idea of what we would need from you would be a huge help.

Yes, that is my GP.

I will do that, thanks! I'm not sure when we will get to it now that spring has finally arrived but I will def be in contact when we start it.

Your offer is tempting...BUT...this GP will never leave my side. My late Grandfather purchased it over in New Jersey. Then him and my late father restored it in the late 80's. It's been handed down through and is considered the family heirloom so it has a lot of sentimental value, more than money can buy. This one does have the optional battery/electric start but stoppped just short of the light option. We did have the original steel wheels for it but they were stolen soon after my grandfathers estate sale, we thought we had them hidden good enough but apparently not. All I have left is a picture of it on steel.

I don't blame you, that gp belongs right where it's at in your farmstead......your very fortunate to have such a important piece in history and family history handed down to you!
It's a shame people can't keep their hands to themselves......would been nice to have the steel wheels for it today!
Seems there was a lot more gp's sold out your way verse here in Illinois......wonder why?
It looks awesome......take care of it!

Talk w you later!

I hope he sees this! To be able to talk to somebody who has the same setup is pretty hard to come by. These blowers on the 1655 are a tough find.

I have one of these blowers


Thanks limebuzz! I was wondering if I could get a measurement on the size of the chain sprocket. It would be the sprocket that drives the chain that turns the auger. The snowblower I have was retrofitted to run off the rear PTO shaft so I want to make sure its the right size for the front PTO shaft RPM difference.

Also, if I could get some detailed pictures on the entire lift mechanism along with any measurements you could get. And possible lastly any pictures you could provide on where and how the lift mechanism attaches to the 1655 under belly.

I know I am asking for a lot of info but I am kinda desperate and can’t find any other info on the lifter.

I greatly appreciate any info I can get, thank you!!
