I ran my $30 model 19 for a couple of hours today afer installing a S/G,replacing a condenser, changing a fitting on the carb and a good cleaning. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/reeds/dscn0364m.jpg[/img] While it ran well and wasn't noisy it did smoke on both acceleration and deacceleration and since there was a trail of oil making it's way down the eng plate from the head gasket area I figured it wouldn't hurt to remove the head and take look inside. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/reeds/dscn0365m.jpg[/img] I guess I'll have to measure the bore and with any luck I can give this a quick hone and ring job. Has any one fiddled with the end caps to adjust end play on the crankshaft, this one like all of the others that I have seen, has plenty. I've noticed that these engines seem to wear the timing gear on the crank or is it supposed to look like it's worn?

If I remember correctly the crankshaft end play is supposed to be 0.002 to 0.008". It is adjusted by gasket thickness on the side opposite the flywheel. Engine gasket kits come with an assortment of different thickness gaskets so you can set the end play correctly.

      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
