You have a bracket on front it's hooked to the quick release pins. The pto is just behind the fan .Not sure if deck bracket or not can not see front plate in photo.No hard ware on it.  From the front looking at bracket if there is small hole down near bottom left corner it's a deck bracket minus the tension d bolt.  

The PTO is missing I called the guy I got it from, but of course he didn't call back. They sell them new but MAN they are expensive but man those assemblies are expensive! Anyone have one they don't need lol?  

 

I do have weights for the front if that's what you are asking. . .

After looking at the pics more closely, that front bracket you have looks like a blade mule bracket. Compare it with you front blade mount. Given by the holes on the bottom that where the blade attaches. Also the PTO's on these can be pricey. It would imagine its there just maybe not functioning. Usually all they need is an adjustment. Shoot some pics of the fan and we can identify which PTO style you have.

Keep an eye on eBay for the PTO. That's the best place to find one cheaper. They are still pricey but not $600+ pricey. Look for the EZ adjust style.

I don't have my fan because it attaches to the PTO assembly. . . I need to order that as well. . . I can take some more Close up pics tomorrow. I have hydraulic leaks like crazy too! I think I'm going to replace all the lines just to be safe. . .

If you were closer I would give you a bracket. I have 5 I think. It seems they are attracted to me lol. Welcome to the forum and congrats on your Case. I have 4 (446, 226, 222, 446) those are great tractors! I think you did well for 700 considering the PTO, tiller, etc would've cost that separate. You bought the attachments and got the tractor for free. Enjoy your new found addiction! That Kohler is a beast and won't take much to get going.

I'm selling him a mule drive and deck hanger for 35.00 do you think he can weld or bolt a flat bar across the weight bar bracket and use it to run the deck belt adjustment rod through?. He's in Tennessee, not too far, lol

I thought the one you had would work for mine? I'd rather not have to weld and manufacture stuff for it if I don't have too. . .

What he has would work. It is just missing the front bracket. I will have to go out and look at my blade mule bracket. I don't think it has the rear holes for the deck bracket to attach to. Also the front plate on his is set back a couple inches. He will lose that much in tension adjustment. Those front mule brackets you need are not hard to find and fairly cheap. For some reason I can find deck brackets everywhere but have been searching for the bracket you have for a while now and come up empty handed lol.

it will work but it will have to attach it to your weight bracket. I've owned many kinds of tractors and the first thing I do is read the operator, service, and parts manuals over and over until I know that tractor inside out, witout this kind of education, you will find it very hard and expensive to stay in this hobby, good luck

The mule drive on the left is the complete drive with front bracket. The right is the front bracket you would need with his assembly.

Notice the rear holes. I believe your existing bracket is missing these which is where the deck bracket attaches.

This is the bracket that I believe you have on your tractor now. I could be wrong. A closer pic would help. Maybe even remove it and shoot a pic.

Hope this helps.

For 700 you did well even though it needs work. I stand corrected on the front bracket. That is the factory weight bracket. Though it won't mount the deck for you, it is a sought after part including the factory Case weights. I wouldn't modify that bracket in any way shape or form.

I have a PTO clutch assembly on the way and I don't plan on modifying the weight holder . . . I really didn't realize how rare the suitcase weights were. . .

Good point Eric, those are rare, it would be a crime to alter it in any way

Can you tell what that is attached to the left foot rest? I thought maybe flow diverter but see no control handle.Looks almost like hydraulic motor different color for Case part.    Let me know if you cant find bracket .
