If i'm reading the attachment chart right a 33 inch tiller off a 1886 should work on a 1455..The only difference i can tell is i would need the shorter drive shaft..Hope someone can look at this for me and make sure i'm right..Thxs

Shortening a drive shaft is easy.  Making one longer is a little more work.  From what I read in the fitment table you should be good to go.

If it is a 33" Model 18090 tiller, you need the shorter driveshaft. If it a 33" Model 18093 tiller, you need to change both arms on the tiller and the driveshaft. With that said, the tiller will fit.

Yes..But looking at the chart the 18090 and 18093 used the same arms..So if i'm reading it right 1455 should use the same arms as a 1886 if it is a 18093..If that makes sense..lol

Okay..Looking at this a little more..If this is a 18093 i will need the 1718301 R.H arm and the 1718304 L H arm..So i need to make sure if this is a 18093 tiller it has these arms..Correct?

Correct. The arms can be changed out though if it does not have the correct arms for your application.

The arms might not be easy to find, but others have found them, and some of the Bolens parts suppliers on here have been very helpful with this in the past.

If you mean the mount arm on the tiller those don't need to be changed for the tiller to fit on a 1455.

Its simple the arms on the tiller have have a slot on the ends those slide over the lower pins on the ears on the rear end of the tractor.  Make sure you put the top pins in the ears on the rear end or the tiller will hop off.  Then the two lift arm hook to the rock shaft under the tractor with two pins.  Slide the drive shaft on the tiller and pto, lock it and your good to go.
