Smokey 718H

Recommended Posts

After changing the hydro fluid and filter, adjusting the shift linkage (thanks Maynard for the instructions), the hydro seems to work OK. Got the throttle adjusted ok. The problem is it still smokes! Checked the easy stuff, breather assebmly, then pulled the valve cover. The exhaust valve guide is loose in the head! :(:( Has anyone repaired a head with a loose guide? I think it probably needs a new/ rebuildable head. Anyone got one they are willing to part with? Let me know, I am also putting an ad in the parts wanted section. Thanks, GregB

The loose valve guide could be the reason for the smoke. It could be sucking oil past the valve into the combustion chamber and burning it. One of many possable causes for smoke.

        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
