Questions for Ray

Recommended Posts

Hey Ray; I put new seals and bearings in my BGB on the 3416 H. Now I got a leak from evidnetly the right hand side of the box. Fluid dropped about 1-2 inches in about 3 hours of running. While working on her, i noticesd that the right hand spacer, next to the hydro pulley had a slight groove in it from the seal so I reversed it. Will this leak wear together the more I run it , or what? All the best

Did it leak after you reversed the spacer? The spacer is about a 1-1/4" long and if reversed the seal should be riding on unworn metal. The BGB is only suppose to have 16 oz. (pint) of oil. Was the BGB overfilled to begin with? I would try it after reversing the spacer and if still leaks with oil to proper fill level, I would replace the seal.

        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
