T816/6216 New Engine

Recommended Posts

Valve seat on the briggs 16 hp engine in one of my T816s came out and the result was the seat hammered on the aluminum block. I just replaced the engine. I purchased a new B/S 18.5 hp 42D707 to replace the 16 hp 40_707. The fit was almost perfect. the only change I had to make was the linkage on the governor on the new engine was in the way of the sheet metal and the muffler. I used the old intake manifold and the governor linkage from the 16 hp on the 18.5 with the new carb from the 18.5 hp and the problem was solved. With the sheet metal back on (sheet metal bolts on exactly like 16 hp)the new engine is not noticable at all. With hood up the decals are the only evidence of a new engine. Runs great and makes a well used tractor run like new for about $400. It was a fun day doing it as well.

      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
