i recently purchased  a 1650 MF - while unloading it I noticed it is missing the axle nut & washer on one side. I fortunately got a parts book with the purchase so I know it's a

1 1/8 NF nut  - part # 365 645 x1

and

a 1 1/8 flat washer  part # 353 765 x1

 

question - is that nut  & washer available from "someone"  or do I just get them from my local supplier

 

other question is what other parts are available for this machine? I actually have 2- one dead in the yard and now this one on the idea that it runs (didn't start when I picked it up, possibly just a dead battery)

thanks in advance, new to this forum, I also have a bolens 1477 w/Johnson loader so I'm there as well

Your local hardware store can hook you up with the washer and nut . There are plenty of attachments avalible for these machines. Post some pics of the masseys when you get a chance .

I cant find the flat washer anywhere but the nut is available here

I'm sure that you could just get them a local supplier or McMaster-Carr or something rather than MF.

 

 

Parts availability is kind of hit and miss. Depends on what you are looking for I guess. The engine is just a K341 Kohler so pretty much everything for that is pretty readily available. The rear ends and hydro units used in them were used in other machines as well, I don't know how many NEW parts for that you'll find but there is lots of them being parted out at least. The plastic dash and console are hard to find. I actually need those myself.

 

Decals are hard to come by. Maple Hunter has some but they are way off factory. There is a dash decal from clickitandstickit? I think which is bang on to OEM. I will have having a local shop do new hood and fender decals for mine in the next couple months.

 

Anyways, welcome to the massey side of the forum lol, if you need to find a part someone here will be able to find it for sure.

thanks for the info on the nut - one that's there has a "shoulder" on it - don't really think it matters, more just curious about it

not much on taking pictures and my machines are strictly working machines, not restoration material (at least for now) - will be at least somewhat active on the site, particularly as I (hopefully) make progress on the machines....

I have a few dash decals and front grill decals as well . No matter the shape, pics are always good . None of mine are show room quality.

When working on these old tractors, you will find that many of the parts are "off the shelf". Nobody could afford to build their tractors from scratch so they would incorporate standard items as much as possible. Old time hardware stores used to have assortments of standard hardware that included: electric motor brushes, bearings, bushings, springs, special style bolts, pins, switches, and many other usefull parts for repairs around the house and garage.

 

I have been able to get many small parts at  NAPA although they have cut down on what they carry. Joe's(one of our sponsors) has helped me with parts for unusual GTs. Check with the other sponsors too. Good Luck, Rick

Hey, watched all you YouTube videos on the 1650 restore. I'd love to find a 1655/1855 to to a full restore on then use but they're hard to find especially on PEI. Especially a 77' model year as that's the year I was born lol.

Haha thanks man I appreciate your viewership. I was hoping to make a little more progress on it this winter than what I did but my mom ended up passing away and it kind of slowed things down a lot. I’m back at it now and starting to make some new videos, most of the ones I published through the winter were actually done in the late fall up to about Christmas time. I’m turning it into a poor mans 1655 with a set of 26” tires on the back and 18’s up front haha. Those 55 series are a tough bugger to find here too and when you do they are very expensive!

You guys over on the island sure love the Massey’s, I sold a 12H and my restored 14 to a guy over there I think he has a complete collection now.

Yeah someday soon I hope. I plan on a frame off restore then build a cab similar to the one on my LA165. to make it look like the farm tractors (like yours). A loader & Tiller would be sweet, but for now the tractor first lol.
