Got me a Deere, Deere pleased me....

Recommended Posts


...Took it apart under yonder tree, parts said "e-Bay me"... (to the tune of "Got Me a Cat")

Hey Dutch, if you thought that a FDT was a pain to work on how would you like to have to take the steering apart just to change the drive belt??? There's no way to get it out otherwise!!!

BTW, this belt was made to run with BOTH V-side and back side idlers at the same time. These two pulleys rotate around the center post I'm holding and are the clutching mechanism. I think I'll check the belt length, maybe keep the pulleys for future use....

I'm really amazed at how horrible the deck mount/layout appears to be on a majority of the JD tractors I've seen. Friend of mine has one and said it's a 1.5hr ordeal to pull the deck. He choked when I said I could pull the deck off my 716H in 2 minutes if I was slow.

      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
