Looking at a 1555, has 6000 hours on gas engine and seems tired, I have another to put in from 1650. I would use for plowing,brush hog, disc, on my 15 acres, might put a loader on it. Any input would be great....thanks

Oliver/Waukesha engine. Kinda hard to find in the diesel version. +or- $3500 would be my estimation.

Like mr lund said the 1650 motor won't swap right in. I have a 1550 that I put the larger engine in. (880 but it's the same dimentions) Had to cut the pto shaft 1 in". If you have the 2 speed, you have to cut 1 in" off the front of the transmission input shaft. I don't have the 2 speed so I made up a clutch shaft to fit. Waterpump sits higher also. Need to swap pumps or fan shrouds. Came out ok, but I bought it as a parts tractor. Didn't get the motor with it. 1550/55 is a great little tractor. Big enough to run a haybine and baler, pull a 3 bottom plow but small enough to move with a 3/4 ton pickup and 2 axle tagalong trailer.

One thing about the 1555 they have the old style slideing gear trans.For most jobs its not a problem, but with a loader or any job with lots of shifting you miss haveing the constant mesh trans that the larger sizes have.The one i have has not run after i got the 2-70.

The only con I can think of is that tractor has the single speed pto and most likely is set up for 540 r.p.m. which for most people is what they need and not a problem.
We had a 1550 when we dairy farmed and wish I still had it, I know where it is but the guy said he does not want sell. I've also offered to buy my neighbors 1555 but he won't sell his either. If the engine is tired I would rebuild the one it has.

Don't know if you can put a 1650 engine in it. The 1650 engine is an inch longer from the rear motor mount back. They use a different PTO shaft and I'm not sure about mating up the drive sprockets for the coupler chain.
As far as the 1555 itself,same as my 1550. Darned good tractor. I wouldn't be afraid of it just because of a tired engine,not that big of a project to overhaul. I've got close to 9400 hours on mine. Still a good dependable tractor.
