627 Yeoman

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have what I believe to be a '68 yeoman,(990486)8hp,recoil start.I'm putting a 12hp electric start in it.Now,my questions,did the Yeoman,in'68 come with electric start?If so,where the heck was the batt.? Was it in the front of the engine? Would the fuel tank have been the same size,or was there a different dash~console w/electric?I know my 12 hp engine is longer,physically,but even allowing for the difference,I dont think a regular lawn trac. batt. would fit in the front. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks b4hand. WOODY~ SIMTRAC?

I have a 69 yeoman and the battery is right behind the grill. The battery is about the same size as a motorcycle battery. I don't think there is any difference in the dash. You should be able to access the manuals for your tractor at [url]http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/techpubsearch.php#start[/url]. Good luck, John

      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
