71" 728 is ready to mow again

Recommended Posts

after much trial and tribulation my 728 is back together again. I had to reweld the ears onto my shifter ball into the tranny, but first I had to remove it from the tranny which destoyed the half bearings that are press fit into the case. I destroyed two sets of new split bearings trying to reinstall. Then my father had a brainstorm and told me to sand the edges of the bearings where they meet until all the slop was out of the bearing and shifter ball. It worked like a charm it slid right into the case and I used loctite to hold it into the case so it won't pull out during use. Thanks for the suggestions it will be nice to mow with my 31 year old beauty again.

        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
