Can't say that I've found one of those laser bolt wrenches yet either, but we had an Engineer on the boat who thought that as long as he could see it in his flashlight beam, we could reach it to clean it up. We told him that as soon as he "engineered" a way to attach the rags onto the end of that beam, we'd get to work cleaning.......

Sometimes if I get a bolt of nut I can't reach I go buy a cheap wrench, heat it up, and bend it to a shape that will help reach the nut. I can't count the number of times I've saved a ton of aggravation by spending a couple of bucks. I hold on the wrenches and sometimes I can use them again.

:DJohn:D We had a bunch of the old plow wrenches that used to come with Ford 9 and 8N tractors. These were awsome for just what you described. I've sometimes thought these modified ones should be patented!!! [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/JoeJ/joej_sig2.gif[/img]

My solution to all your problems: I don't know about you....but I have friends that work for beer. When I have a problem like that I wait until one of these guys stops by. They like to get their hands dirty so they all like to help out. I show them what I need and tell them I'll be back in a little bit with a beer of their choice;). 20-40 minutes later I show up with the beer and they usually have it done, or at least it's their challenge for the night. (I've been tricked like this before too) WARNING: I don't suggest that you have them touch ANYTHING after a few beers. Trust me on this one!!

        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
