Recommended Posts

Now that my 7010 is cutting grass, I`m looking to get my old B1 mobile again any suggestions for an engine? would like to find a bolt in replacement. 7hp, 8hp any body know what will work with out drilling holes, I don`t have the original engine so a rebuild is not an option I have a 10hp briggs but the frame will have to be drilled and I want it to appear stock.?

I made a tracing of the cut-outs needed in a 700/725 frame to mount the larger engines. I traced the openings from a frame from a 1964 Landlord. I don't recall who I sent it to, maybe they'll see this post and send it to you....

I put a 10Hp on my 61 Wards at one time without the cut-out. Flattened the shroud with a hammer only slightly and put a couple of washers under the engine. Worked great. I am currently running a 14Hp Kohler on it, still do not have a cut-out.

      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
