shorten K321 shaft

Recommended Posts

SteveK
Hello: I acquired a K321 to replace the K301 in a 7112. Everything looks good except the shaft end of the crankshaft is too long. I don't need it to power a pto - just want to avoid cutting up the front grill or run without the hood. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to shorten this shaft. Can it be cut off using a saw of some kind? Ground off? Is it possible to cut it with a torch by keeping the rest of the crank cool to avoid damage? Thanks.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
