I have the above described PK that my parents purchased new (s/n 60104). It was out of the family for a few years and some parts may have gone missing. I'm trying to rebuild and mount the mower deck and I'm not sure what connections are needed. It appears that the front brackets/hitch is complete. The back of the deck has a hitch pivot in the back center and also a short piece of chain. It looks like I could connect the chain up to the frame lift linkage, but I'm not seeing what the hitch pivot/socket thing on the deck would attach to. Is that socket part of the 'parallel hitch' that maybe didn't come with this tractor? I have a manual but no implement manuals.

Welcome to the site, Derrick! You have a parallel lift, I do not have one with that style, but people say they are tricky to get set-up correctly. I don't have any reference pictures or diagrams/ manuals of it. Hopefully somebody else with a diagram or that style will come a long.
