I finally got the deck on my 1556... What a JOB.. The tractor and deck were from different family's and so that my have been most of the problem.. Trying to get the 4 pivot points to line up took hours..
I have lots of ????? about puting deck on,,, but i will go slow and hope I say it right...
First,,,, I did get it on... with a pry bar and hammer... and it runs really well, but it's got to be easier than that..
There are 2 ear shaped lobes on the support going from side to side.. the support that goes up and over the gear box... 1 lobe on each side... ARE those held on with allen screws,to adjust in and out..???--- If so,,, that would have helped... I couldn't find an allen to fit it.. No size seemed to be right.. Maybe stripped...?
Is it easier to mount the arms on the tractor first,, then the deck to the arms.. or all in one assembly on deck, and up to the tractor..??
When raiseing the deck,, hydrollicly , it only wants to raise one side.. I Do need to adjust the deck yet. ( one side is 3" one side is 21/4 ) But the right side where the lift arm is,, is the only side that lifts.. I have the manual for adjusting and that is next..( No rain please )
I would like to take the deck back off to get a better look at these things ,,But it's such a job..
And I need to adjust the lift lever...to lower ,,,seems to be out of adjustment.. It's hard to even see it without taking the side cover off,, which I don't want to do if possible..
I have more ???? to come as ,this is my first tube frame Thanks sodi
