Need help with 1650 and 1855-wish list

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 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

The shaft on my 1650 was drilled and a bolt put through it by the 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.
