transmission swap

Hi Buster Was looking at a 6211 myself, belonging to a friend. For your trans. probs. you've gotten many great suggestions. With my 728 and 4111 3 speed tractors, I'm compelled to wait until I see the drive belt and/or pulley come to a complete stop-3-10 seconds. Normally, it then shifts right in gear, but, sometimes I start to ease the clutch out and then it pops right in. I only cut grass and don't have to shift much-just keep rolling. So these things are no problemo-I'm happy the things runs after 30 years on their original engines, and w/gates NAPA belts-a no no. I also spent many, many, days undoing problems I bought from previous owners as I tried to save money (probably would have been better off buying new 20 years ago) but I'm a glutten for a 'good deal', saving old stuff, and the resulting punishment. And maybe, resulting satisfaction of solving problems others couldn't (ego gratification). Realize, not too many sell old tractors cause they run so well, the lease is up and it's time to turn them in. So the question is, barring the broken, screwed up parts of previous owners, does the 11 HP 6211 seem to be a well built, reliable set-up for cutting grass. Thanks Andy

        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
