Head gasket

Recommended Posts

Ok guys Got my head gasket today for the 700 and put it on and torqued it at 15.8 and tightened head bolts the way it says to and when I started it up in noticed a faint tinking in the motor and it is coming from up from the head how it sounds with my ear by it and thats where I have pin pointed the noise to be . do you think this will be ok or should I get it fixed but with this head gasket i got the carb set up great and runs smooth and sounds strong too but ran less then 5 minutes. Any ideas to help me out here

The head may be warped a little,I always check before installing by placing it on a flat surface (I use a piece of plate glass)with a piece of sand paper on it rub the head around on the sand paper then look for any low spots. They should be easy to spot,I use 250 grit to start with and once it's flat no low spots I clean it up with 400 wet/dry.

        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
