I can't even tell how the armature would come off the crank unless it will just pull off. I thought there would be set screws somewhere. The way that bushing is worn on this one it is almost impossible to tell what is part of the bushing and what isn't.


No setscrews...just slides off...well, supposed to! All that holds everything in place is the bolt & washer in end of crank. Your bushing seized due to a bearing at one time locking up & heating/fusing the bushing to the crank.

I guess I will try the puller on it tomorrow and see if I can get it to slide off. I wonder if I can just make a new bushing. I don't have a lathe but I could drill one out. The bearing that was in it seemed alright to me. I think if I can get the thing to slide off maybe it will give me a better understanding of what it is supposed to be LOL

Just wait to see what that ebay clutch goes to. If you can land that cheap enough to afford, then not only would you have the bushing, but you'd also have a good plate w/fingers.

Hey George. I see you were looking into getting brake pads. I had a Ford LGT17 that appears to have the same hydrostat as the 1855 and those pads were gone too. There was a set of front brake pads for my Camry laying around so I took a chisel and and broke the pad material off the backing plate, cut it to shape and fit it into the "socket". Worked great but ruined my Camry brake job. I still have the "ruined" set around here somewhere and I'll probably do the same for my 1855.

Regards,
Canie

That is a great idea for the Massey anyway, sorry about the Camry's luck LOL

I gotta get some more work done on my 1655 sometime soon. I got to mess with it this past weekend trying to eliminate the surging and seems to be taken care of. It has been repowered with an Onan Performer 20hp. Has a ticking on the passenger side, need to check the valve adjustment or it might just be an exhaust leak. I also need to get two new belts for the hydro driveshaft.

I can't remember if I had ever updated this thread or not about the pto being fixed. Daniel sent me the rivets and plate and I was able to get it all fixed up. I just have to decide if I am going to attempt fixing the mower deck or sell it for parts. The body of deck is pretty much shot. I have a snow blower for the 1655 but I don't know if I have all of the stuff to put it on. I think I am missing a couple brackets but I haven't gotten to the point yet where I attempted to try.
