I was wondering what size implements I'll need for my 1855 and if any one knows a good place to get them.

Welcome to GTT,watch your local craigslist for attachments. When you have a minute post some picks of your tractor.

There are also adapters that will let you use sleeve hitch attachments.  There are usually several on eBay, but lately they've seemed pricey.

I adapted a cat-1 rear blade to mine by welding on cat-0 pins, the lower bars will open enough to get it on. That won't work with everything.

Sometimes you can face the pins inward to get a cat 1 implement onto a cat 0 hitch.

 

BTW, as you're looking for implements be advised that many Sears tractors used a proprietary cat 0 hitch.  Implements for that hitch may not work on your tractor.  That hitch is 12" wide instead of the standard 20 and the top link geometry is different.  At least 90% of the cat 0 implements I see on Craigslist in my area are the Sears proprietary ones.

 

This Sears plow has the proprietary cat 0:

The diagram on the first page of that is not to spec.  It shows the hitch between arms as 16"(1'4") where the category 0 specification is 20".

 

While most lift arms will swing enough to accommodate that he should expect cat 0 implements to be 20" wide.

Thanks for all the responses I went and picked up my snapper about a week ago and ended up getting a multi hitch a plow and a disk and mower deck included in the deal all were with the stuff from the factory I was told. I am getting ready to get a quick hitch for category one and make it fit a category zero so I will have an adapter.
