Thanks olcowhand....I will have to look at it this weekend. Like I said in an earlier post...I am not a mechanic. I need lost of visuals and have to go slow until I get it right. YOu have given me a great starting point. I did look at it today to see how hard it would be to take off. There are 4 pins and a belt. The only think I can not figure out is how to get the belt off of the tractor. It looks like I will have to remove something from the front. I have not looked at the rear PTO yet. I know the belt is missing but I do not have any implements yet either so no big hurry there......

I'ld say something missing on mower mounts. There are mounts and odd wire clips that hold everything on and I bet your front ones are gone or the wire clips anyway and not holding the pins on deck swivels. That blade would have to GO if I owned it. Kinda heavy and sticks out way too far. Nice you have 3pt tho. Maybe that distance out, allows blade to spin 180 while mounted, most boughten ones can't do that. Still don't like it, would have to modify if mine! Looks like a good start for restoring.


Gentlemen, Thanks so much for the help. I was able to be the mower leveled today. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. One of the service manuals had a step by step process that was quite simple...just adjust the yokes that were attached at the front of the mower deck. Small achievement for many but I will take what I can get....

Do you have the second set of links that show in this pic? If you do have all 4 links installed, then the adjustable ones need to be tightened up (shortened) to get a leveled deck.

Sorry olclowhand....I posted to the wrong quote somehow...this was meant for you...

Good to hear! Most things we fear doing turn out not so bad, once we get past the fear part!

It was more total lack of knowledge than fear...I always knew I could just take the mover off and keep on trucking :thumbs:
