I got one of these with a Ford 120 a couple of weeks ago.

I think I'm missing some mounting straps??

 

I've gone through the manuals section, but can't find anything

about it. (I may have missed it)

 

Hopefully someone can help me with this.

 

Thanks.

Elf, you will love the ease of removal, and mouting of these, once, you see how it goes! There ARE TONS of photos, and posting on the innerweb on mounting the scissors frame to the chassis. ( I would take pics, but it's already been done) To get you started, the back "U" bracket goes on the frame inside cross bar ( between frame rails), the front PIN goes THROUGH the frame behind the front axle, the rest should bump into place. If ya need m ore help, I will take pics for ya!! Hope this helps a little, Stiemmy.

It looks complete.  Don't need the belt guards to run it but wouldn't hurt to mount them.  Be careful to route the belt inside the guide pins or they will wear off quick.

I'd free up the guide wheels before mounting, if the adjusters are stuck, can use a punch and some liquid wrench.

To mount the deck the rear channel on the scissor hooks into a cross bar below the battery.  The front pins on the scissor clip into a sprung hook set behind the axle.  Then the lift handle eye bolt goes over the short fat pin on the right side of the scissor.  There are a couple hairpin cotters that go in holes in the round bars.

Can't tell if the tension spring is busted but you'll want that to work before mowing with it

Also make sure the blades are tight should be 2 dowels per blade

Thanks guys for the input. I'll slide the deck down there and give it a try.

 

The blades are missing. Any leads on those?

Thanks.

Here is a manual for one of these! I finally found the deck parts @ Messicks by using this model # : 09jc9740

 

Here a screen shot of the blades:

Thanks Kenny.

 

It seems I'm missing a couple parts. Items 25 and 26 and associated hardware.

The scissor was bolted to the deck with a bracket, in place of these parts and

can't be raised or lowered.

If someone could provide me with some rough measurements, I can fab up those

parts.

Thanks.

Ah--I did not see this question before when you posted the link to this thread. Now I understand--I will provide pics and measurements of that part this evening.

Here are a couple pics of the part in question--one with a tape measure. The angle of the two "legs" is about 56° (all I have is a roofing pitch card to measure that, and it's pretty close to an 18:12 pitch ha ha).

 

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need other views.
