Engine Question

Recommended Posts

Have a 14hp cast iron koehler engine that has a piece of one of the cast iron fins broken off.:( The piece is shaped like a sharks tooth or triangle. It is approximately one(1) inch across the base and 1/2 inch high. The motor seems to run fine without it, but will there be long term effects? Like eventually ruining the bearings or something? Any opinions.

Wouldn't worry about it. Was talking to somebody a few years back about a lawn mower he purchaced back in the 60's really cheap because two of the fins towards the bottom were broken. He was told by the dealer it had fallen of the truck. He said he never had a problem with it for the 20 years he owned it.

        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
