Keep in mind that this is only a personal opinion. Kohler is a better engine than Briggs, but it is also more expensive. The difference in price is more than what the difference in quality is worth. Pat

Thanks PatRarick she is also going to look at the cub cadets. but she doest have a lot of money. so that might not go. ive only had standard briggs. not evan overhead cam ones. a friend said for the exact same price a 18 hp.kohler would be better than the twin cyl.20h.p. briggs. but he has never owned one either. at least i talked her out of wallyworld brand. murray i think she said the had.:( thanks john

      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
