Through the process of losing my grandfather and father, I have acquired a few (OK, more than a few) pieces of machinery that I grew up with and am confident of doing what needs to be done to keep them in running condition, I do however, need some assistance in figuring out a few things. 

 

The 1556 is still running strong, I did some light mowing this summer with it for nostalgia, and am interested to see how well the snow thrower works in the upcoming months if possible. Which leads me to my questions. I'm a little lost on just exactly what model it is. I can't find any tag on the thrower, it's got a FMC decal on it, but I haven't had much luck identifying it yet. Second, I can't seem to discern the lift point bracket location. Now I do have to say, I haven't taken the deck off yet which I'm know is part of my issue. I'm also missing the slip yoke between the PTO output shaft and the thrower shaft, haven't came across anything in my going through 5 stalls worth of accumulated stuff! 

 

But any info whether it be manual, pics, or words would be greatly appreciated!

Yep the deck has to come off. Also the slip shaft on the deck (might) fit on the snow thrower? I'm sure some one here will be able to help.

Measure the width.

 

If it's 36", it's an 18516

 

If it's 38", it's an 18538

It would be a 38", I was smart enough to check that before I started perusing for information the other day!
