Hi guys! I'm usually in the Bolens forum, but happened across across a NOS dash and decal at what used to be an old Snapper/MF, JD, Bolens, Ariens dealership. After researching online to figure out what it fit, I noticed these are hard to find, if not unicorns (correct me if wrong). I have contacted a guy who does reproduction parts (top notch work). I am sending out my dash and decal this week so he can reproduce them. Anyone that restores wheelhorse will know him. His name is Glen Pettit. If you know of any other AMF/Snapper/Massey parts that needs reproduced, he is your guy. He just needs an original piece to cast the molds from. Please feel free to contact me or Glen directly. You can see his work at the link below. I know he travels to different shows as well! Hopefully he will be able to recreate these for those that need one. I noticed these tractors have a plastic transmission tunnel too. If he can do the dash, someone may want to supply him with the tunnel cover to recreate too. Once he is finished with my dash, I will list it for sale. Hope this helps someone! Pictures of my dash and Decal below. If someone can provide me with make/model numbers and years this fit, I will relay it to Glen.

Kind regards,

I know if fits Massey MF1450 and MF1650.  Probably also MF1655 and MF1855.  It will also fit some of the Snapper 1450, 1650 and possibly 1655 and 1855.  

 

And yes. . . . . those are quite difficult to find.  If he has luck with it; I would certainly be in the market for one. 

 

There is also an underseat tray that seems to be in the "Unicorn" category.  Not sure people would pay alot for one, but I could sure use one.

There was a very nice gentleman from Canada that had these decals made too.....he's a forum member here and I met up with him last Summer, but I can't remember his username off the top of my head.  

 

If this gentleman that does the Wheel Horse parts remakes the plastic dash, suggest to him that a thicker piece of plastic be used, or use HDPE plastic instead of the ABS (I believe this is what the originals are made from).  This would be much less prone to breakage like the originals.  

 

Do you happen to have an idea on prices?  Thanks for your effort with this.

I was not. The gentleman that reproduced Bolens parts for me never responded any further to my initial email. I thought this was really odd and tried to reach out to him numerous times since, so hopefully he is okay. The dash is now headed to another MF member. I will make sure I keep my eyes open for other MF parts in the future and let everyone here know.

Happy New Year!
Nick
