7117 BGB question?

Recommended Posts

I put my BGB back together and everything seems to be working fine, however I do have some slight oil leakage I think may be coming from the box. I tighten up the bolts, but maybe I need to tighten them up a little more. Does anyone know if you have to replace that gasket every time you remove that cover or is it supposed to be reusable? Thanks, MR

I would get a gasket from a Simplicity dealer, and replace the old one, and use the blue RTV silicone(theres not wrong with that). I found out the gasket sealer harder to remove than silicone. Trust me, I have a friend who has been a Allis Chalmers mechanic for his whole life and uses the RTV silicone on all of the engines he overhauls.

        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
