Swapping hitches on 42'' mower decks ?

Recommended Posts

JBLACK
I have been trying to get a complete deck locally but not much luck,the deck on my 78-79 7010 is cracked in the front and side. I was thinking of using one of my 101/b decks and changing the adjustment/rollers and other hardware from the 1690501 to the older deck has any one tried this? any problems other than drilling new holes further outboard? looking for some answers the grass is getting long!! I did find 2 good used decks at one place but he wouldn`t sell was willing to pay 150. to 200. for a decent one 1690501 or equiv. but no luck. John?

Remove the running boards for the time being? Also I am heading out to PA in about 6 weeks with an empty truck, I have a decent 48" deck (Mainly the shell) and know of a couple of 42" that may be available. Let me do some checking tomorrow and I will post as to what I can get and how much. Rob

      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
