Need Advice on a 7016 Hydro

Recommended Posts

Tom_Byrne
Went to look a 7016 hydro with a Peco vac system and a snow blower today. It's been sitting outside uncovered for about a year. Besides the usual rigor-mortis from sitting out(and bees nest's}:)), it seems the clutch pedal will not move. I released the parking brake and that rod moved OK. The deck is on it so I can't see under it; all the linkage seems OK. Any ideas on what could be wrong? I was going to offer $500.00 for it because it needs a lot of little things(voltage regulator, tires, paint, etc)but that non-moving pedal is making me nervous...

I think the 7016 is the same as my AC716. Mine is a Sunstrand Hydro. The clutch pedal and brake work the same as on the three speeds. The clutch releases the belt between the BGB and the hydro pump. The clutch pedal has no direct link to the hydro. Check the clutch pedal pivot and all linkage pivots for seizure, same as you would on a 3-speed. You don't even need the clutch pedal to drive the hydro, but you do need this pedal for brakes.

Tom Most likely just rust on the shaft from non use most clutch/brake pedals don't get used on a hydrostatic. Don't believe clutch/brake on mine has been pushed 5 times in 18 years. Of course a right leg to push it with would help. Some penetrating oil on the shaft and linkage pivot points should do it.

I agree, sounds like the shaft may be frozen. In my opinion $500 sounds a little high, especially to start with. Unless you can run it and verify that the hydro is in good shape you may end up with a non-moving vac unit... Just my opinion 8D

      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
