I didn't follow the advice of most, which was to get the points eliminator. I replaced worn points plungers in the past month on two 243431 motors. Cleaned and adjusted the points, fiddled with the wires and screws and the cover - all that stuff. The only reason I didn't use the eliminator the *second* time round was because the dealer gave me the plunger and sleeve for free to do the motor I bought from them. If I did another I would go with the eliminator (get it at NAPA). Less than $20, and you don't have to worry about points, condensor or plunger.

        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
