Well, It's a start. Did you have to pay anything for the tractor? You might get some calls from people who claim they want to sell their tractor to you, you give them a price, and they refuse to sell. I believe they are just using you as a price guide, to see it it is worth anything, or so they can stick in the paper and sell it for the price you just quoted, or higher. I know someone who used to do the same thing you are, and he warned me about this. It makes no sense at all. the person still has to pay a fee to list it in the paper. and they could of sold it there to you right on the spot to you.

      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
