Ok I am still trying to figure out how this all went down with in a weeks time,but here`s the story last saturday I arranged to pick up an old dayton lawn tractor with a fairly new 18hp b&s (made by mtd)figured I would use it to mow between xmas trees at the farm.With this tractor came an A.C.Homesteader 8 complete with a Simplicity snowblower however the rear or trans is locked up. price for all $100.00 Ok now here`s the strange part this past Sat. went to a b-day party for a friend the development had a comunity yard sale that day. When I got there it was over but there was som stuff on the street to be trashed.Well I couldn`t find the right house so I drove on down the street and there was a Simplicity yeoman648 frame sheet, metal,complete deck,trans/rear no engine or wheels but all in perfect condition . price, free just haul away.! HOPEFULLY I will be able to add a yeoman in super shape to my collection! DID I DO OK?

The only thing that has me worried is if the rear and trans is ok in the Yeoman I`m not to informed about this set up. my other tractors are older and are horizontal set ups with seperate bevel gear boxes.Is there anything I should look for? thanx . JBlack

      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
