Making new leveling rods is not that hard to do nor is making a set of mounting brackets for the loader. Do a search for mounting a garden tractor loader and you should be able to get an idea of whats needed. Call kwik-way  and see if they still have drawings of the mounts. 

Lifting excess weight with that loader would tend to straighten those rods. Pushing down or ramming into something would bend them. We have had 2 of those loaders and my son still has one. I for the life of me can't imagine how much pressure it took to bow them like that. I would be more inclined to think that some one tried to pick up the tractor and loader by them thus bending them up.

Sorry - the loader was made by Wright-Way in Eagle Grove or Indianola, Iowa.

They went out of business in the late 90's

That makes a lot of sense. Found it by webster city and I live in eagle grove. And now looking the mounting looks identical!! You actually made my day:)

Good research. Sure looked like the ones that were around here.

notice, the OP doesn't say what part of the country this steal was found in....

 

ahh I see the "buddy" chimes in Iowa must be Ariens Country as thatw as where my GT 19 came from too... seems most of anything related to Ariens is out there.

Does anyone in this forum have one on their Ariens GT that could show me what the correct mounting set up looks like...like I said looks like mines for a deere that they cobbled up to work on Ariens

Member Warren has a loader on his Ariens. I don't know the make of it. He has a few photos of it in this thread http://gardentractor...ntrol-upgrades/

There are a few photo in the gallery of tractors with loaders. 

Ariens with what looks to be original loader. Shows the frame fairly well.

And a Gravely with a Quik way loader. Basicly the same as an Ariens.
