BGB question

Recommended Posts

How much play or side-to-side movement should there be in the front shaft of a beveled gear box for a smaller framed tractor like a 700 series or Landlord? I'm guessing there should be no play at all. If in fact there is a little bit of play, I assume the bushings can be replaced? If so, has anyone done it before and how much of a job is it? This is assuming of course that the gears are not damaged at all. Thanks, Matt

Pretty sure a 700 is considered a large frame tractor since it has a horizontal engine and BGB. See this post for discussion of amount of play on input shaft: http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=112639

        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
