Ok Guys..I am new here..well new at posting.
I finally picked up a 1650 and a 1855 neither is/was running.
The 1650 needs 2 front rims(have tires) it didnt come with any. It is also stripped on the hydro input shaft..now can I drill a hole and run a small hardened bolt through it, or even try JB weld? I have managed to get it running but the lower throttle return spring seems stretched-causes it to backfire occasionally.
It had been sitting for quite some time-cleaned junk out of carb and tank.

The 1855 I havent tried to start, I did try to turn it over but didnt seem to be getting power to the starter. Hmm..not sure what switches I need to check. I havent pulled the carb yet as this is an onan b48m and I know parts arent cheap..a carb rebuild kit??First?..If I get it running it needs a throttle cable and a new front tire or tube.

I would like to make either one into a plow tractor for the win
ter, I dont have any massey implements. I do have a ton of sears/roper attachements has anyone modified anything to fit?

Thanks Shaun

Another case of a Massey with an Eaton hydrostat, as told by the pic of the front of the hydro. I have heard of many who had great success drilling & pinning the driveshaft. I've been lucky, as all I have owned had either very good, or decent shaft splines. Forget JB Weld for the shaft.
Once you get more into the Onan, you can post info for us to help trouble-shoot it.
The Sears tools could easily be modded to work fine with the Massey's lift.

Would anyone be so kind to let me know exactly where they drilled and pinned this shaft, and what size hole and pin or bolt. If anyone has any pics I'd love to see them..thank you.


Re: 1855..I honestly don't know where to start, it would be my preferred plow tractor if feasible..I'm no mechanic by any means, but am good at teardown and listening..and hoarding tractors all of a sudden..

Thanks olcowhand..

The shaft on my 1650 was drilled and a bolt put through it by the PO..........it broke on me. Finally got another pump with a halfway decent shaft but not great. I'm going to install it and see how long it lasts.

Ok..that doesnt sound good. I guess the set screw in the fan is 6mm? Mine is rusted and soaking in wd40 right now. If and when I can remove it I will drill a 6mm hole through the shaft. I have found some 6mm allen head bolts that are grade 12.9 and are shouldered almost all the way through. How big was the bolt that was installed on yours Tinner?
