Looks good.I can imagine the amount of time that you've spent on getting it all fixed up. These tractors were way ahead of there time back then. There a very powerful machine ,comparable to the Sub Compacts now. You'll enjoy using it that's for sure.  

I have a 1655 (repowered to 20 hp) and a GC2310. If I had to make a choice, I'd sure miss the backhoe.

That is to keep the exhaust away from the snow blower,so I've read.

I think you are correct. I think it's connected to Peerless 2600 rear end too, almost exact same set up as in the sears FF tractors.

IF it has an Eaton hydro its a 2500 series and Sundstrand hydro's are the 2600 series both are rated to 20 hp according to Peerless and the 2500 series can have either a regular planetary diff  or a limited slip unit were as the 2600 series can have all of the 2500 series and more with an optional diff lock . As for ratings they are very similar and dependent on axle configurations .hydro unit  Though the 2600 units are usually heavier just because of the hydro unit and the factor of the pass through pump/motor configuration making easier to get a rear pto adapted to the tractor (WAY COOL) . Did any of the Massies have this like the big Deere's did?

I think Tudor or Daniel will definitely know, I think the Snappers had the Eaton and the Masseys had the Sunstrand, I know my MF has the Sunstrand and 2600

MF14/16, and MF/Snapper 1450/1650/1655/1855 use the Peerless 2500 final drives on pages 80 - 83 of this PDF. This final drive accommodates both the Eaton 11 and Sundstrand Series 15 hydros. The Peerless 2600 starts on page 84, is visibly different in profile, and will also support both.

 

I have another link showing the specs for both, but the server at that end currently indicates a problem. Search "Peerless Final Drives" and you may get lucky. My Windows XP is not accessing some sites anymore.

Yes, the Snappers all used the finned Eaton 11's.  All the Masseys I've ever seen used the Sundstrand.  I have heard that a few Masseys had Eatons in them, but have never seen one.

  If I'm thinking right, my JD430 and F935's have the 2600 series final drives.

The early model MF1450/1650's used Sundstrands. After about a year, they switched to Eatons and saved the Sundstrands for the 55 series.
