I'm restoring a 915 lawn keeper. The unit I'm restoring doesn't have the manual lift mechanism that allows the operator to lift and lock the mower in a transport position. From pictures and memory, I've designed one that will work, but before I spend the money to have the linkage made, I'd rather have tracings and/or the dimensions of the handle link and the link that attaches to the mower. I also need the dimensions of the pivot for the handle link from the tractor attachment bolt. Pictures would also be helpful. Attached is a picture from a sales brochure that shows the lift mechanism. Attached File  Lift Mechanism.doc   8.4MB   93 downloads

Sorry I cant be of any help on this as I don't have a Lawn Keeper in my collection. I checked my NOS Bolens stock to see if I had any of the lift mechanism but didnt have what your looking for.
I know there's a few people with LK's on here that should be able to give you the measurements you need.

Anyone out there with a lawn keeper with this mower lift linkage?  My restore is complete, except for these parts.  Any help would be appreciated.
