Thanks all for responding. Like most on here I like doing it myself. I just did not know anything about the different models of the Vanguard. I like the Kohler engine but also like putting new engines and new technology in old stuff. My AC917 engine is tired and using oil so I think I will repower it.

912mow, I just completed a 917 Hydro transplant for the same reasons you stated. I decided to go with a 23 hp Vanguard; got the motor and the kit from Jim's Repair @ Hastings, MN. We made it a community project so I had plenty of help / assistance / supervision! Glad to answer any questions you might have... We also made a short video if you care to watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpZSGvD2ujU Mike

        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
