funny Bob... I do need to live up to the hot rod part ya know. I think Mike's a bit more practical than me but much better at fabrication so who knows :lvs We both have kids and a wife to keep us busy, but some how Mike finds the time as do I. Honesty I think I spend more time on the forums here than tinkering on the machines.... luxury of having a desk job 8D I hope to have the highest powered yet still usable sovy out there. I know some have done crazy stuff with motorcycle and VW motors but those where strict hotrods............. hmmm maybe I am not living up to the title wah By the way it's cheating if Mike gets help from his secret weapon (BLT)unless I can get in on that too..... but then again I don't have a welder yet ;)

I won, look at Kevins...all show and now go!:D:D:D Just kidding Kevin. Gotta love the diesel chugging. That 800hp beast sure is a power machine though. I can not look at that stuff on youtube...I end up getting lost as one leads to another...

I know how things go. I wanted to make a puller using this 3000HP beauty (that's me holding it up) http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/BLT/16v4000.JPG ,but I couldn't afford the $24,000.00 radiator to go with the $190,000.00 engine. For that matter I couldn't get the money for the engine either. The banker gave that strange look.sm00sm00sm00:D

        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
