It was a bit tough figuring the bend in the center section. That's why I did the one pic so you could understand it better. The tie rod is right in front of this bend. Best of luck building it.

Kenny, where are the shoulder bushings located? I was putting the deck on tonight and noticed I have some slop in the lift carriage arms I guess thats what you would call them.

I made the mule drive today, pick up the pully's when I get a chance.. I had the metal laying around for that so went ahead while i had a few minutes and got that much done. Finding the long flat bars might be alittle challenging but other than that I have most of the bar stock and bushings . I guess I could make it out of 1/4 deck steel just use the plasma cutter to cut out what i need. think that would work or not, if not i;ll see if i can hunt some flat stock down..

Buck, all the bolts holding the lift carriage together are shoulder bolts. I think New Holland wants something like $9.50 each for them (X8). I couldn't find any replacements online, so I got some 3/8" ID X 3/4"OD brass bushings and made my own. Thread is here:

I found a guy with a ford mule drive like i needed so i got to look at it and he even had a extra spring he gave me so i think i got it really close. I'll get the pics up as soon as i can. The funny thing is he's looking for a deck and lift also so we were both in the same boat on that but hey every little bit helps.. If i could just find a lift and deck to play with for a while that would be so great,

I did notice something about the old deck they could be reworked to fit almost anything as long as you can remember what deck bearings and spindles they take I found a old deck that came off a power king and the man put it on a bolens and made it work I thought that was pretty cool when he told me that. I think its great when a person can do them kind of things. you just have to stand back and admire those kind of things when you see them..

Glad you found a mule drive to look at. It could be a bit tough to build, though! Good luck!

Buck, the 120 has a different frame, so I don't think that lift would work. I'll see if I can find that e-bay listing.

I stand corrected! That looks just like the one Keith posted a pic of. It should work fine and would be hard to build at that price. And It is for sale by one of our sponsors! Check it out , Bud!
