I have a Massey 1650 with stripped splines and need to know where to find the part number on the Hydro so I can try to get a new input shaft. Thanks

I have the same problem with a 1650 that I just picked up.i am looking for solutions to get it up and operational again.Massey says the shaft is obsolete. So I found a place that made me one hardended and all for a mear $350. The shaft is too hard for me to get a weld to bond to it,so I am at a stand still and the grass isn't.If you find a way to fix this I would love to hear about it.Good luck

Limebuzz I am trying to get a new shaft from a hydraulic shop if they can get me one. I will let you know what I come up with. I might have to turn to my dad for help he has all the tools and machines I would ever need. One thought is to take the shaft out of the housing so you can get some heat to it without worry to get it to weld right. He could machine on for me if I can't find one probably. I will keep you updated.

Thanks

Thanks a lot!I had one made for my 1450 a couple years ago but that is ridiculous $ for a little shaft.I was thinking about taking it out to weld it but I cant figure what to weld on it in order to fit back through the case?

Yeah I am trying to be cheap with it I only paid 450 for it and the motor runs and has rear PTO and 3 point hitch too. Once I get the shaft done going to see if every thing works good then will probably paint it

Did you every find a solution for this? I'm in the same boat with my 1650. I welded the shaft to the coupling with a 6011 root pass and 7018 cover...using 3/32 rods and a wet rag around the front seal of the hydro pump. It lasted for about 2 hours. It looks like the hardened shaft is hard to get good penetration on while keeping heat down to the seal.

I just had another one strip on me last week. Now I have a pile of 3 that all need new shafts.
