1864 50c deck ?

Post by cwcub »

Greetings, A friend gave me an 1864 that runs ok but the deck is junk. Question is I have a 50c I think it is, how much trouble would that be to put on? I have the deck chassis for the 50c as well

Ok so I went ahead and put a 50” deck off of 1650 on the 1864. Why you ask? My 1872 with haban deck quit, more on that later and the 1864 deck is junk. I used the deck hanger and drive spindle off the 782, couldn’t get the pulley off for the larger belt so I swapped drive spindles. Rigged up a couple adjustable hangers leveled the deck and away it went. The belt from the 1864 worked. Mows great. Now I can bring the 1872 in and try to figure that out
