the previous owner said he could not get it to run, when I got it home I sprayed a little starting fluid in the carb and it started right up but wouldn't stay running so I got a carb kit and rebuilt it. I went through it from bottom to top. Changed all fluids and filters could not ask for a better running GT.

Very Nice, I have been watching for one of those to come up for sale. Its my understanding that its basically an MTD 990. Eitherway they are one tuff tractor.

Thanks for all the coments, I was a real fun resto, The main reason I got it was to till my two gardens 35x100 & 20x30 and it makes easy work of it.

I have recently acquired a White Yard Boss GT 1655--less an engine.  I have put in a Kohler 18 hp engine.  Everything works, however the transmission is low on oil/fluid.  

 

Can someone tell me what kind of oil/fluid it takes?

 

Thank you.

With out knowing what oil is actually in it you may want to drain it completely and start over, Most of my Eatons have ATF in them while others I have bought have a hydraulic oil in . And both work fine with no over heat issues.

 You may consider trying to find a L head 16hp briggs to put back in your 1655, even if you just have the engine to do it if you would ever want to, The 1655 silver stripe was only built one year 1979, and is starting to be sought after by some oliver guys because the number was used on the big tractors.

Looked at your photos and I must say you have one of the nicest restored GT1655. What a beautiful job you did.

I have just acquired a White Yard Boss GT1655 but it did not have an  engine.  I put a Kohler T18 in it and the tractor works fine. 

 

Although the transmission oil looks OK, I would like to change filter and oil.  The oil looks clean and is clear like hydraulic oil.

 

Can anyone tell me what kind of transmission oil I should.

 

Thank you.
