I was wanting to mount an 18442 deck under a G12.  The chart says "Req.relocate pin in front bolster to higher position."  Checked with another long time Bolens collector and we could not figure out what they meant.  I proceeded to change the deck over.  Removed all the brackets off a 1053 and installed them on the G12.  Everything went on OK, deck is mounted and raises an inch higher than it did on the 1053.  Used a single belt pto which has a smaller pulley, which turns the deck faster.  Works great.  If you mounting a deck under the G series Don't put a lot of faith in the "2" pin relocate requirement.  There is only one hole in the bolster and axle.
