Recommended Posts

Thanks for everyones help!!!!!!!!!!! I finally got the tractor running and starting with very little effort. I got this free from a freind After sitting for two year out in the weather(last owner). I had time to work on it.I cleaned the points,gas tank and carb. I also put a new condensor on it cost me 8.00 and some time. Now i'm in love with it. can anyone tell me what type of fluids I need to drain and fill with new.

I'm speaking in ignorance of your particular model tractor, but since no one else has replied yet... If it has a bevel gear box in the tractor midsection, check that first thing. We bought a used piece and assumed there was oil "in dat dere ting." Well, it was nearly dry and ultimately resulted in ripping the machine in two to replace the bevel gears. Also check the transmission fluid in the rear axle housing. I would recommend replacing both if you have the time - gets any moisture out that could possibly be in there. From the school of hard knocks, Tom

        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
