Planning to install 1690045 rear lift kit on 7010

Recommended Posts

I found a good thread here from last year that describes the differences between the 1690404 (7000 and 7010 series) and 1690045 (3400 series), but I have a question about installation that I don't see described in the instructions I found for the 1690045. My question regards a possible change in the spring for the clutch/brake lever. On both my 3410 (donor of the kit) and my 7010 (target) the clutch/brake lever has three holes. On the 3410, there is what appears to be a wire guide for the cable in the top hole, and a short spring that goes down to a bracket attached with the top bolt of the side plate into the tranny. On the 7010, there is a long, larger diameter spring from the top hole all the way back to the bracket where the seat pan attaches. My question is, do I have to switch to the short spring setup? It doesn't look like cable would interfere with the long spring it would be parallel to. As far as the wire guide, I can't tell how functional it was or if it is intended to be there (it is a broken stub right now) I don't have an exploded view of the 1690045. Thanks for any help!

Can't help you with your questions since I don't have any experience moving a rear lift on the earlier tractors. However, on pg 24 of this manual you'll find the exploded parts diagram for the 1600045 rear lift kit: http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCBEN8aoJ2rE3Cvh5kbp796Dq Hope it helps.

That's great Bill. The wire guide actually looks like what I have, though mine has a buggered end I thought had broken off. My gut feeling is I need to switch to the short spring. I took a picture of the 3410 setup prior to disassembly so I don't forget, and will put the parts on the shelf for assembly prior to the winter. Another thing I notice is that the hitch appears a little different than mine. I think there were two styles with slightly different arm lengths. I have been stymied by abnormal wear on the 3410 tranny case at the back top from the cable end bracket getting pulled into it. I need to resolve this prior to installation on the 7010. Thanks for the link!

        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
