On my 1250 when I use the hydraulic lift for the mower deck, it picks up only on the right side. I have replaced the small levers on the attachment frame.  Got it to cut level now, but it won't lift equally. HELP NEEDED.  Thanks Frank

That sounds like a broken roll pin on one lift arm.

I agree with Kenny on the broken roll pin as the most likely cause . I'd get someone to raise and lower it while you observe the rockshaft lift arms  to confirm that both arms are moving the same . Just be careful when observing it .

The roll pin is what is broken. Thank you for the replies.  Frank

Kind of a bear to replace without tearing everything apart. But I figured it out. Hardest part was grinding the frame to let the pin go in strainght.  Thank you for the replies.  Frank
