arbor interchange?

Recommended Posts

does anyone see a problem with this? my deck shell is shot, 1691812 42 inch. I picked up an older 990885 42 inch deck that is in exceptional shape, my original deck has the spline arbors and are in great shape no issues at all and mounted from the top side rather than the bottom , can I mount them on the older deck from the bottom side? by doing this the pulleys and the blades are at the right height if I mount them from the top the pulleys are at a higher height than the idler pulley and will not work and the blades sit in the shell too high. when I dry fit things and tightened them down everything seemed right. Am I asking for problems? really do not want to hassle with rebuilding the original arbors if I do not have to. thanks Mike

        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
