Vickers Hydro Questions

Recommended Posts

BMinor8806
What is the purpose of the spring that goes from the top of the transmission down to (I'm guessing) the control pintle on the Vickers Hydro? Also I just converted my B-112 to a HB-112 and the seat pan from my donor tractor rests on the transmission, how do I fix this? Brandon

As far as I can tell this spring takes up any slop in the linkage and keeps it from rattling. I suspect that without it you might get some "surging" from the hydro. I put seat hinges on once, and had to grind the heads down to 3/16 thick on the right hinge to keep them from hitting, so it's a tight fit. This is a 3416H and I cant say what you might do on a 112 to raise the seat pan.

        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
