You have a tiller PTO setup from an earlier, Gilson S series, based machine. The later tractors use the same mountings front and rear, but the rear hitch is further rearward than the earlier tractors, making the PTO shaft and lift rods too short. You will either have to lengthen the shaft, or find the PTO for a later tractor.
