Does anyone know if Massey 1655 is supposed to have down pressure or is it float only on 3 pt.
Looks like needs stop welded to linkage to get down pressure.

Mine doesn't have down pressure. The rockshaft kinda "sits" on the cylinder. There's no float on the valve side of it. Now if you did weld it solid, I'd switch lines with the belly lift. That way you'll have float in the valve instead.

So the spool valve for belly lift has float and pressure?

Or better yet, get another valve with float and stack it onto the existing set. Adding a 3rd spool with float. I believe all the 50 and 55 series Masseys had float on the belly lift. So it'll be the most common valve to find.

Check eBay. Although not the cheapest, Joes outdoor is parting 2 55 series.

He's not the cheapest but I've never gotten a bad part from him. Plus he usually has what I'm looking for.

Your 3 point?

Mechanically it shouldn't. You can grab the lift arms and pick them up. If not then someone has already modified it. As for the valve, the 3 point is normally hooked to the middle valve. That valve does not have a float built into it.

I've considered welding mine solid out back. I have a loader on my 1655 so the belly cylinder is not and will never be usable. I'm going to switch my 3 point to the first valve once I find time somewhere!! Still trying to finish installing this 24hp Onan right now.

The 3pt is designed not to have down pressure, the hydraulic cylinder is double acting and the valve has no float position for it, but it's in the design of the 3pt itself.

There is a member here sell parts off one. Jpswft I believe. He has posts in this forum about his 1855. You might check with him first.
