what to do?

Recommended Posts

My 7112 had been giving me some trouble when I tried to mow the other day-now granted it has never run perfect since I bought it 5 years ago-blows smoke, loud, I come in the house smelling after mowing, but I like it (my wife not so crazy about it). Anyway last night tried to mow again, got it started, but it quit after a few minutes, got it started again and seemed to be running fine for a few seconds til it really revved up and BANG! broken connector rod. The engine has already been bored .030 over and who knows what the cylinder looks like now. Cant really afford to buy a brand new plastic tractor but not sure of my options on repairing this one. I thought I read a post yesterday aboout somebody buying a new engine for about $350 and getting it delivered to their door but cant find it now. ANy thoughts on what I should do?

There's a 12 horse Briggs in the classifieds here, and I have a Kohler 12 horse that needs a rebuild that I'll be getting rid of when I part out the Jake 1200 Chief.

You won't find a brand new 12horse for $350. Seriously doubt it anyway. Check www.smallenginewarehouse.com for options, or post a want ad here for one that runs or can be rebuilt. Brent

      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
