Well I have a question once again. On my 1655 when I push the pedal in either farward or revers it doesen t move right away and lately it hasn t been moving as fast as usual. Is this normal in the colder weather? I thought the oil might be thicker than what is recomended I used Massey Ferguson hydro Fluid in it.

I'm not sure what the MF fluid is. In cold weather, you wanna use ATF. I use Dexron III. Can you post a pic of the MF fluid bottle?

The only other oil I know that AGCO/Massey ever specifically marketed was a specific oil for the rear end / hydraulics. This was very important to use in the older MF stuff like the 165, 50, 35 etc. The Hydraulics wouldn't work right if you used anyone else's oil.

The basics of the oil was a 80-90 wt oil. If he used that, it would be to thick on almost every day, but would get much worse in the cold. Ask him if it was thick and took a long time to pour or if it was thin like ATF.

You may want to check the charge pressure on the hydro. I have seen the pin that drives the charge pump break causing no charge pressure.

Before I got to involved in the hydro itself I would check the drive belt and make sure it is not slipping.

Well Today at school for FFA week we had Tractor Day. So since I live so close I drove my 1655 up there and I realised what is wrong with my rear end. Why it won't move very fast. Well my belts were slipping behind the mottor because the oil we put in the tranny is to think. What kind of automatic transmission fluid should I put in it, we are gonna drain out the stuff thats in it now and put in new.

Even with thicker oil, those belts should not slip. I recommend changing the fluid and both belts. You can use Dexron III trans fluid. My older MF14 manual also recommends 10w40 motor oil for heavy duty or high temperature use. It's the identical Sundstrand hydro.

I was also wondering what kind of transmission filter i need to get and where to get it from. Thanks for the help!

Like MH81 said, he may have put 90 weight in there. I would think that could possibly make the belts slip just by putting so much stress on the pump trying to pump it.

Massey 14/16 manual does state a Massey oil specific for the Sundstrand... M1110 But yes, if by some miracle he pumped 80/90 in there, now that would change things!

Paint Tin Wood stain Material property Drink I believe this is the stuff we used. I have some more questions

1. Where is the best place to get an oil filter for an onan b43m engine?

2. How do I remove the belts that are connected to the pto shaft and the driveshaft behind the engine?
