new hybrid project

Recommended Posts

This is a 72 homelite t-16 that I got from my dad(smilinsam). He took the motor out for his hybrid 2012 and I got the rest.


I am going to install a sunstrand hydro and hydro lift out of a 916 parts tractor that I have laying around.


The power plant is of two options, a 16 horse single cylinder Briggs like factory, or a 16 horse vanguard v-twin Briggs.

well I got the the old shuttle trans removed from the tractor and I found a large mouse nest around the drive shaft under the dash. Tomorrow night I will be bolting in the sunstrand trans and start the engineering process to mount the hydro lift and hydro lever.

The new tyranny is bolted in and I have decided to use the vanguard v-twin as the power plant. I set it in the tractor to find out what drive shaft configuration I need and from there I can align the engine bolt it down,and figure out how I will run the lines for the hydraulic lift.

I did not have to notch the frame but I will have to get a oil filter relocation kit or notch the hood because this engine has the oil filter sticking straight out the side so the hood wont shut.

        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
