Interestingly enough the owners found me and the price was a down right bargain. ( dont ask)
The tractor has a broken rod on a replacement engine Linamar LX790. The frame has been notched to accept the starter. Now for the good news. Its a 3 pt (complete) PTO complete. Great pulleys and splines they look like new. The bigger question is it has a Eaton hydro vs the Sundstrand that I have in my 1655/1855.
So the question is which is better and has more ooomph in the long run or are they just about the same.
This tractor is going to be my extra parts tractor. Later this winter I may decide to part with the 3 pt lift I have on a 1650, and what remains of its PTO assy.
Has anyone got any information on the ease of putting a Kohler l8HP engine from a wheel horse D180 into a 1655/1855?
My P218 is still running but I do want to be prepared in the event it shells. Seems to be a lot of Onan engines out there with thrown rods, and that raises the last question of why?
As always thanks for any insight others have to share.

I like the Sundstrand the best,but have nothing against the Eaton either.
