I took off my front blade to put my tiller on this weekend and it snowed both days  :(  but found out the shaft is to short maybe 5 1/2 inches this is the first time putting on a tiller are there other longer and the tiller mounts in the middle of the back hitch?KIMG0180 (1).jpg IMAG0332.jpg IMAG0334.jpg IMAG0336.jpg IMAG0341.jpg IMAG0342.jpg IMAG0346.jpg IMAG0347.jpg

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.
