Tony, the actuator doesn't hook up directly to the mower deck. It attaches to the primary lifting lift underneath the frame of the tractor. The lift link is what raises the mower deck. The rear lifting arm attaches to this lift link as well, and runs back between the frame and the transmission through the rear hitch plate. I sold my '72 112 with electric lift many years ago, so I don't have it to take pictures of anymore. Sorry, but this is the best I can do for you. I'm sure someone else will be along shortly that may be able to provide you with a picture so you can see what I'm talking about.

Darn cold out this morning! Has not started snowing here yet, but it is supposed to anytime.
I got the tractor out this morning, took the deck off, and pulled the tractor up on my car ramps to get some pics. The first couple are looking back at the lift-motor-actuator from the front, and the last couple are looking at it from the side. I hope these help.
I did learn something dissappointing tho...it looks like the electric motor is is in the way of a lift arm going back to my integral hitch...I thought about putting the hitch on my 112, but it does not look like I can.

You are welcome, and that is what it is all about....helping your neighbors.... AND working on some awesome old iron!
I have been changing out the hydraulic couplings on my JD 140 today, 3 out of 4 of them were getting pretty tight, not wanting to work good....then I will put my snow blade on it. The weather guessers are saying 4 to 8 inches of snow, maybe more... this weekend....hey, I'll take seat time where ever I can get it!
