Tick Tick Tick

Recommended Posts

Good Morning, Funny how things work out. Last night, I was working on doing my first spring maintenance on my 7116H tractor (yes I was a spring maintenance virgin). My 3.5 year old son was out in the garage with me. After I got the new oil, air filter and spark plug in I wanted to make sure it ran OK so I started it up. The tractor started right up and then my son asked me what the ticking noise was. I had noticed the noise before, but had become kind of used to it I guess. The engine is 16hp cast iron brigs and is a little over a year old. The ticking noise reminds me of rocker arm noise I used to get in my old Ford truck. I wonder if the noise is either valve or electronic ignition related. Does anybody have any other ideas? How often do the valves need to be adjusted? Thank you for your input! Have a great day. It looks like it is going to be a nice one in MN! John

      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
