Do you have the model number of the mower deck? That would be a BIG help to us. That way we know your configuration.

If its the "old style" with the two drag links in the rear, here you go:

 

the two drag links  run from the rear axle tabs of the tractor to the tabs in the rear of the deck, esentially giving you 4 mounting points

 

If you need more info let me know.

Yes, these only had 4 mounting points on the deck.

Its probably going to be easier to buy used ones on ebay..... They are quite easy to find

Hand your girl a weed eater and tell her "You'll catch up when you finish mounting the mower deck."  :poke:

Can someone get measurements of those deck links?

All mine are stowed away and I would basically have to clear the garage to get to them

I think I can find some to measure tomorrow. I'm not exactly sure where they are, but I have a pretty good idea.

Here are the two I have.

The rods are 5/8" diameter, 11" overall length from end to the center of the "L" end. The threaded portion is 2 1/2" long.

image.jpg

The "L" is 2 3/4" from center to end. The two holes are 7/8" apart, and the outer is about 1/4" from the end. They appear to be for 1/8" pins.

image.jpg

One assembly was 12 1/4" from center to center, and the other was 12 7/16"

image.jpg

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else.

Bob
