Hello all, first post here as well as my first 1655. I have spent many hours searching for the correct belt ID numbers for both the front and rear drives on my 1655. The belts that are on it appear to be very loose and I am not sure if they are the correct ones so I don't want to just use them as my jig. Does anybody have the correct belt ID numbers? Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!

Thanks for the replies! Funny, I searched all over and as soon as I created an account on this site and started this thread, I was then able to view the pinned threads at the top of the page. There it was, the list of all the belt numbers for Masseys.

Olcowhand, the chart up in the pinned section states a Gates part number 6385 (48" deck) or 6384 (54" deck). I have the 48 inch deck. Which number should I use? It looks like there should be two different size belts on the front of the engine.

My machine does not have a front or rear PTO, unfortunately.

The 1655/1855 uses belts both front and rear to drive the mowing deck and the rear driveshaft , they are short double belts that go from engine to the rear driveshaft pulleys and front PTO pulleys.

The rear are like 22 or 23" belts, got mine through partstree.com when I replace the ones for the rear driveshaft.

If you had a rear PTO, it would drive straight off the back of engine shaft, no belts

If you have the timed cogged belt on the deck pulleys, good luck, they are NLA and almost impossible to find.

Here is a picture of the two belts I need. They are on the front of the engine and drive the mower deck. When I engage the mower the belts will turn the deck but when you look at the outside belt it just looks a little to big. That's why I would rather get the correct number for the belt rather than take this belt in and have them size it and it be the wrong size. This machine will be up for sale soon and I want to make sure it's as correct as I can get it.

I am looking at your front pto and it looks as though the splines are worn off or is that a cover protecting the splines?
I was thinking the same thing. I was guessing the cover. Mine was so rounded off the PO had drilled a hole threw for a bolt. Lol. I think I ended up getting my new one from Joe's

Sorry guys, this is my first 1655. What part are you referring to? I did flip the PTO switch several times and the deck did spin so I am pretty sure everything is working as it should. But you have my curiosity spinning as to whether this thing is correct or not. I can take some more pictures if that helps?

They are speaking of the front PTO shaft which has a plastic cover over the shaft splines. The opposite end of the shaft that drives the deck shaft has splines for driving front implements such as a snowblower. That's where the cover is slipped onto the splines.

Ok, now I understand. Yes, it is a rubber cover on the shaft of the PTO. I was not aware it was even on there! I pulled it of and the splines are brand new!! Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Like I previously posted, this is my first 1655. I am very familiar with the N Fords and the Massey Harris GP and the smaller MF 7 & 8's.
