Lawn mower race

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine picked up a lawn mower for free that he plans on entering into a backyard lawn mower race with some guys. They agreed on a spending limit of $250. Its my understanding that he got a deutz-allis 11hp Briggs with the heavy duty rear-end. It was parked in running condition 3 years ago but the deck was shot. I'm just wondering what are some of the tricks are to get these thing to move. I'll try to get more info on what can and can't be done but right now I think its anything goes as long as its under $250.

If its anything goes,put a larger pulley on the engine that drives the tranny.Might also want to limit the front axle pivot if you have alot of cornering to do.Could also pull govenor off and run her till she's just ready to blow.:D

      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
