vari-speed ? answered, now about that PTO -----

Recommended Posts

at the suggestion of pat, kent and others i checked out the idler pulley and discovered that the needle bearings on the pivot shaft of the idler arm were shot. there was way too much "slop" in the pulley movemnt to be effective. will replace those today then adjust the stop accordingly. now onto the next question (this is a vari-speed modification to a b-110 or changing a b-110 to a b-112 sans engine). i've attached a pto from a b-112 along with what i believe to be the correct spring tensioning rod. however, when i engage the spring assembly it does not hold and the pto swings forward on the pivot rod. for a b-112, does the spring assembly only work when there is something attached to the pto, such as a deck or a sickle bar? on the b-110, i could keep the spring engaged without anything attached to the pto.

      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
