Yeah, my 716H whines, but not awfully so. The real test is to hop on and see how it accelerates going forward. The tranny runs most of it's time in that direction. If it's really sluggish, the tranny might be going soft (i.e. wearing out), but remember that the linkage has a spring in it to keep the acceleration to a reasonable level. You could also unscrew the fill cap on the back of the tranny and stick a screwdriver in it and see what the fluid looks like. Should be reddish, if it's really dark and smells burn, could be a sign of problems.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      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
