Same basicdeck, with some variations. Newer decks have a wider adjustment frame from the pivot points to the roller adjustment levers. This gets them outside of the running boards for good clearance. The newer decks also have a different drive pulley on the top of the center spindal. Will they work, yes. But some mods will need to be made.

It will fit but it won't work correctly until the parts are swapped over. The old FDT decks don't have the holes for the carriage bolts pre-drilled so he will need to drill the bolt holes in order to put his newer roller bar and height adjusters on it. As-is the deck will also run at a different speed because as Dave pointed out, the center pulley is a different size. He will also need to put the later style idler arm on it which has the eylet for the cable to lift the deck.

        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
