need help fast! briggs model 19 headgasket

Recommended Posts

Was mowing with my 1960 MW squire when the engine cut out and I pulled it on the driveway to fill it back up with gas and noticed it still had gas. Hhhmmm. The bolt on the head that holds the plate to the voltage regulator and the generator had oil around it. :( do ya think the headgasket let go? If so where can I get one at?

I pulled the bolt off and it had a bunch of oil all over it and I noticed it was loose. So I cleaned it all up and put it back in and it started it and it has a weird sound like its losing compression at that spot

        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
