Nice find and the price was good. Was going to say it just needed a little cleaning up but you've already gotten into it. Be sure to post pictures of the finished job.

Congrats on getting your first MF. The 1655/1855 tractors are heavy duty garden tractors and will last forever almost with some TLC. I've got over 2500 hrs on my 1855 and still useing it!

Looks good. Nothing a stay outside in the rain wouldn't cure as far as cosmetics are concerned.

Great piece of equipment. My 1655 also has over 2300 hours.

You'll be a happy camper once you get her dialed in. You can't

My 1650 has that same headlight gone, but it's because the original muffler was shot & I replaced with the canister type which points straight out the front at that spot (mine came with the original engine already replaced with a Magnum 16)

nice machine

should have atleast 13v across the battery running

unplug the lead that runs from the stator under the flywheel, switch to AC Voltage on your meter, should have 20-30v

If you have to change the regulator/retifier, a word of caution, soak those two nuts holding the assemble to the tractor. The studs are welded on at the factory, don't want to twist one off if it can be helped.
