I installed the deck on my HT20 after flushing and refilling the gear box, sharpening the blades, and greasing everything...
However I have a few problems.
1. I can't seem to get the deck level (mainly the front is lower than rear and doesn't seem to want to adjust).
2. should the driveshaft have been the quick attach "snap collar" style? My grandfather modified this one so it has set screws that chase in on the PTO shaft. He also added to the length of it so it slips further over the square shaft and over the PTO.
3. has anyone added some type of caster wheels or wheels in general to the front of their deck? My grandfather had added wheels to this one, but I would like to do something similar in setup to what my Cub Cadet 2072 had on it's 60" Haban Deck (attached some pictures for comparison).
I don't have any pictures of the homemade setup grandpa made on this deck (will snap some when I have time). It seems to work at keeping the deck from gouging into the ground, but i'm still baffled at the leveling of the deck. Perhaps that's why he added the wheels.
Any help, and pictures are greatly appreciated. I believe it is installed correctly....... and other than the initial adjustment issues it seems to be cutting really well (does get plugged up easily though).
