aluminum booster fan - 917 repower

Recommended Posts

OK, Another question in my ongoing series of questions on swapping the 16 HP briggs single into my nearly dead 917. Attached is a pic of my booster fan, which appears to be aluminum. 1. Should this bolt right up to the 917 with the coupler from the 917? (I already have a driveshaft from a 7116 courtesy of RayS) 2. Is there any issue with it being aluminum? Did the 7000-series with 16 briggs engines use the same booster fan? Thanks,

Depends on which driveshaft you have. If it has the stub on the end you can use your rubber coupler but if it is flat you should use the fiber flex discs with spacers.

        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
