42" mower deck rebuild

Recommended Posts

Just installed my rebuilt 42" mower deck on the 5010 Simplicity. Thanks to Nemes & Sons, scrounged all the missing parts (the center blade shroud and roller kit) - replaced the arbor bearings, had some minor MIG weld repairs, primed and painted with Simplicity White, matched up very well to the tractor white. Made my own roller bar from 5/8" barstock, new rollers, blades, belts. Runs smooth - nice wide path compared to my old 36" deck. My wife says - so how much did you spend on that thing - I said, oh, about 100 bucks.... (times 3). The 10HP seems about the min for this setup - its not underpowered, but the engine is working when I'm in 3rd going up terraces. But - it was worth it!

      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
