Stabil Kudos

I was near the Serf that's been stored in the garage cellar for well over a year. It was covered with alot of dust. I decided what the heck I'll see if she'll fire up. Choke, two pulls, purrrr. I love it! Not usually how things work out for me but makes me appreciate something like this all the more.

the only thing I have used Stabil in was my old harley. It was the only thing that actually sat idle for any length of time. Stabil never failed me there. I had an old ford pick me up that I recall using the stabil in and it was over two years and it still fired after I went through the usual prep to start steps on engines that have sat idle for some time. Guess what i'm saying is, things like Stabil, Lucas, Rislone, Marvel Mystery oil....Ya gotta try them at least once. I use each of the afore mentioned products in a wide variety of ways on countless pieces of equiptment. If they claim it will do something and fails....they will usually stand behind their product.

Marvel Mystery oil..My favorite use for it is to pour it into the carb, let the engine run til the smoke nearly hides the machine or vehicle, then pour it in til the engine dies. Later, when you decide to start up again, clean the plug, turn the engine over a few times, install the plug(s), and fire it up. It has not failed me yet, and some engines have stood idle for years!

An analogy comes to mind.....Why dont they make the whole plane out of that black box stuff. In other words, I would pay the extra $ for a product that does what these additives do when the normal use products dont do their jobs. Not getting political, but I could easily go corporate with the answer. If they made everything perfectly, then they would not have their main source of income....parts. IMHO

        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
