While blading the brush debre from the driveway after my backyard clearing project of two days I lost all lift ability of the blade on the 4040. Checked hoses, checked and added half qt of fluid, all was fine,, so I finished what I had to do without lift, stopped to figure a way to manually lift the blade so I could get it back in the shop and found the cyl pin fell outta the blade...boy I feel sharp...MPH

I replaced the 10hp k241s from my AC 710 six speed with a k241s that was on an AC 410 (or 310) and got all the way finished (except muffler). I turned her over but could not see a spark. I kept messing with it and messing with it and no spark!!!. I finally put the plug in and shot some starting fluid in it and she fired right away. I guess I spent all that time for nothing because I just could not see the spark, but it was sparking any way imagine that!!. The engine is VERY STRONG and TIGHT does not smoke at all like the old one. It looks like I'll have a good tractor for mowing this season. John H

I cranked mine until the battery was dead, recharged and cranked some more. Was just about to give up when I remembered that little valve on the bottom of the gas tank. I'd turned it off because it has developed a slow drip. :I Steve

Gee thanks Joe, here I was just hoping I was brain dead from slinging my huskie 61 around for 5 tanks of gas limbing and cutting about 4500sq feet of Tok 'forest'...Guess I feel better knowing I wasn't tired afterall...MPH

I sat down and worked on my 720 repower project a good part of the day since it was good, warm, and Sunny out. After installing the regulator I noticed I had forgotten to tighten 2 of the 4 bolts holding the transmission drive clutch in. Had that gone unnoticed that could have been disasterous......

My "OOPS" was was worse than Steve's. I cranked mine for fifteen minutes and was well into the #%&*@$ mode before I realized that the key was in the "off" position. [:0][:0]:I:I

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
