720 onan help

Recommended Posts


Hey need help. My 720 is only running on one cylinder. It has new plugs and i have good blue spark on cylinder that quits,pulled the head off (bolts were tight but head came right off). I cleaned everything off and put back together, started and ran ok till i revved it up and the same cylinder dropped out. any thoughts? valves are opening and closing

        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
