Ques on Bevel gear box setup

Recommended Posts

Hey dere; I have a 3416 H which i installed all new bearings and seals in the bevel gear box. Now, when I install the input shaft, the crossshaft hits on the head of the bolt. I am using 2 compression washers, smae as come off of the pinion, or input shaft gear. . When I reverse the convex compressions washers, then I got clearance. Ditto for using only one washer. SO, what is the right way to go? all the best

well I had the same thing happen to me what I did to correct it was make sure the front bearing is set far enough in, mine was not also tighten the bolt with the 2 washers for the input shaft to the torque setting in the manuel I believe its 25 to 30 ftlbs also there is not much room to slide the shaft through I put the circlips on after I slid the shaft passed the bolt head

I think there is a special thin head bolt, Grade 8 that is used to to hold the gear on. The head thickness is about half of a standard one. Somewhere I remember mention of it.

        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
