I was directed to your site from a gentleman on Ebay. I am trying to sell a blower that's needs some parts. I have 2 snappers. I am working on the first one I recently bought up in St. Louis. I had a bear of a time with the electrical but it's only the front pto switch that's bad. I am waiting for head gaskets and intake gaskets. It came with a big mower deck and the blower. I also got a bucket of parts I have no idea what they are

Nice GT. Welcome to GTT. I have a 1600 and it is a great tractor when it runs. Check for the manuals you need in our Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

:welcometogttalk:  The "parts" look like parts to make a 3 point lift/hitch.

What parts are for the lift hitch and what are blower parts? I usually work on the garden tractors from the 60s so I am at a loss with all this

The parts are mower deck mounting and lifting and a link for lifting the snow blower.

Here is a great video from Joes outdoor power. He removes thousands of steering wheels this way. The steering is a ross system. The shaft that the steering wheel is on is fine splined so use alot of penitrating oil.

Welcome to GTTalk. Those 1855s are a great tractor. That video is a revelation for anyone who has struggled to remove a wheel, which is probably most of us. The right tool for the job makes all the difference.

Hi

Welcome to GTT

 

Those 4 "U" shaped brackets (pic5) look like holders for cultivator teeth. Everything

else is mounting hardware for deck of blower. Except that pc of 1/2" angle (pic5). not

sure about that.

Welcome.

 

The 4 triangle type shpaed bracekts re the frame mounts for the mowing deck.

I would guess the large springs are assist springs for the snow blower.

 

 

Shoot me a PM with your email, I can try to email the 3 manuals and parts lists I have for the 1855
