There are two different lift links for the tube frames. They look almost identical except that one is just shorter than the other, and is used for the front mount implements, like the snowcaster, blade, etc.
It sounds like that is the one that you have.
The other is a longer one used for the rear mounted attachments like your tiller. Those usually seem to disappear over the years when the attachments change hands.
The good news is that they are easy to come by.
Just contact Jestin at www.tubeframes.com
He can get one to you at a very reasonable price.

Thanks! That's what I was thinking, but wanted to see if anyone on here could tell me for sure. I'll contact Jestin to see if he's got one.
If you have a picture of the link I can tell you whhich one you have....

P.S. - Does anyone have a copy of the Tiller Model 18618 owners manual?

As for a manual. you can get one here:
Note that there are 2 manuals for the 18618. Make sure you get the right one.
I believe that is a typo in the manual for the 25" tiller.
The 25" tillers were Bolens # 18614 and # 18616, while the 33" tiller was Bolens # 18618.
The 22" tillers were Bolens # 18608 and # 18610.
Bolens # 18615 and # 18617 were 8" Hood & Tine Extension Kits and were added to many tillers, creating confusion between the width of the tiller and the actual model number of the tiller.
