I have a problem swapping 15 HP Kohler engines on a JD LT155. The engines are the same except the original engine has a 3 amp charging system and the new engine has a 15 amp charging system. The connector plugs are also the same but when I attach the battery ground I get sparks and the connector plug gets warm. If I disconnect the plug there is no sparking when I hook up the ground. Anybody know what is happening and what I need to do to use the 15 amp system with the 3 amp tractor system? Thanks.

Go talk to your local Deere dealer - it was a dealer installed option to have the 15 amp regulated system on the LT's. Just be sure to have all your model and serial numbers so they know what you have. Tim

        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
