hi-lo questions

Recommended Posts

are the hi-lo and the varidrive one and the same? is it all external or does installation require opening up the trannie? does one unit fit all? specificly, will a vari on a 2012 fit onto my big ten w/o major hassles?

The varidrive and high/low are totally different. You could put a high/low on your 2012 without opening up the tranny, if you can find one. To put a varidrive on your 2012, you'd have to replace the BGB and everything behind it, since it uses 4" longer frame rails, threaded shaft on the BGB and tranny, and totally different mounting for the fenders.

      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
