Help with tractors and parts

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm relatively new to this site because I took some pictures of my grandfather's tractors and believed he went to this forum alot. His username was something like Dutch, Churchhill, and / or Herb. Something to that degree at least. He passed away back in 2009, and we knew he loved Simplicity tractors, so my grandmother and I are interested in finding out some of the information relating to some pictures I took. We are just wondering what the part is / what it does / is it rare or common / price...just the basics. I don't see a picture upload option, so if need be I'll be willing to email the pictures to anyone who can help me. My email is bgeorge555@comcast.net thanks for anyone who can help!

Your grandfather, Dutch as he was best known as, was a respected member and wrote many threads pertaining to the hobby and website. As a suggestion, I would take some time to study the site where you can, learn as much as you can and then start asking some questions. This will help you sift the run of the mill equipment from the more valuable items. Joining the club will allow you to post pictures for more advice down the road. Posting pictures is a paid privilege along with the added subject matter that you can read and add comments to. The annual membership is $10.00 per year. And as I write the general consensus now is the market is somewhat soft. Other people will pipe in also. Pricing is a tuffy sometimes as like items very from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Also seasonal items sell better within its time frame. I wish you well in your endeavors.

        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
