$75 Baron Update

Recommended Posts

Well with my luck here recently with pictures they probably wont show. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/Chris727/baronbefore.JPG[/img] Now the motor is off. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/Chris727/7013nomotor.JPG[/img] The guy I bought it from said that it had been rebuilt and they put the oil dipper in the wrong way or something and it made a rattling noise. Well I've never had a big cast iron briggs apart before and its synchro balanced which will make it more complicated. Took the head off and the piston wobbles a bit and my friend who runs a lawnmower repair business told me that it was a very poorly done rebuild from what he saw and that I probably need a piston, hopefully the crank is ok. Still have to remove the oil pan and the flywheel. He told me a piston would be something like $60. I'm hoping not to get into too much money, Oh well. -Chris

Got the motor apart this afternoon to discover it has too small of a piston, a broken oil control ring, the rod journal is scarred beyond repair, connnecting rod is destroyed, governor is broken (but I have a spare to fix that). I guess its still worth putting a new crank, piston and rod in it? -Chris

      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
