Hey guys once again I would like to thank everyone for the great support.
But once again I have a small problem hooking the tiller up. It seems that when installing the pins that hold it to the tractor there is not much room for the pin to go in without rubbing on the drive shaft. I have included a picture and you can see that there is maybe 3/4 of an inch. Has anyone ran into this problem?
It does not look to be bent and if it was you still would not have much room.image.jpg

That inner tab doesn't belong there.

That what I was thinking, so I looks like someone made some mods to it. The other side of the tiller is the same. Does anyone have some pics of what it should look like?

Its basically the same, just without that tab on there, breakout the grinder and you should be fine.

I can take a close-up pic of the mounts on a tube frame square top tiller for you tomorrow. Then you will be sure. Mine has not been modified.

Looks like someone has done some modifications!

That extra bracket that holds the lift link should not  be there either.

These pics are of the tiller mounts for the 18618 tiller I got with my H14 (1456). They clearly show no extra tabs at the mounting point to the tractor.

Great pics.
Here is what I got now , I hooked her up and took it for a little spin in the garden. It did good. I still have a few bugs to work out, the spring on the drive belt has been messed with and not put back together properly. And the pto belts are a little small, it goes all the time. Maybe ill luck out and they will stretch a little . If you look at the pics you will see a extra support on the lift bracket .
Also look at the top tin there is a seem on one side, I wonder if that has been messed with as well.that might be a add on, That would mean the top is not original.

The PTO belts can be adjusted buy loosening the 3 bolts on the PTO housing

 

Yes, I mentioned in my previous post it looked like the lift bar had some modifications. There's supposed to be studs to hold the lift bar but it looks like they broke and someone welded an extra bar instead.

 

The extra section on the tine "Hood" is factory equipment. You have the tine extension kit added.
