Got it from Ray Weaver and it was still in good shape.

Great! Now I know an easy way to ship a unrestored one...Ray is a good man in my book! Glad he had one for you!

It read 0.50 volts going to the clutch. It has to be wiring or toggle switch.

It was a fuse missing that kept the pto from getting power got that fixed. But we found that it has a blown head gasket.

The head is warp and there was oil in the cylinder. We took the crankcase breather off and cleaned everything.

I think it time for a rebuild. I need to stay away from all garden tractors I seem to find problems with them all.

I used some off brand hy-tran from tractor supply the last one I had and no problems

Although I prefer Hytran for older cub cadets, I've had to use the off brand stuff many times due to location/access.  Just make sure it's a Hytran substitute and you'll be just fine.  I've had no problems for years.

Welcome to GTTalk !!! My dad was born and raised in Paris and he still has a lot of family there. I lived there part of my childhood.

Small world.  Nice little town.  Glad you guys are enjoying the 1650.

I got my uncle a riding mower so now we are going to strip the 1650 down and restore her right.

My uncle installed a tractor muffler on there today. He painted it with black grill paint and it looks real good. Pictures coming tomorrow afternoons
