Welcome to the club Nick. I hope you have an easy time getting the new tractor up and running. Just a few notes on this topic. The age of the engine may come into play hear. The plunger that works the points and the lube that drives the plunger may be worn. You may have to set the points gap a little larger than .020 Some engines have so much wear that you may have to convert it to electronic ign. But that is an option should you run into complications.

        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
