HI, the last steel body PK's were 1984, its hard to say what year the deck is it once had a parallel hitch/mule drive and was changed back to what is called the standard hitch with the right hitch it will work on long hood PK's with the front hitch blocks Here's a mower manual with both the parallel and standard hitch that deck as set up needs a standard hitch, that isn't a model 81 deck but I can't tell what it is from the picture.

That sure has been re-worked for whatever it was on. Surely is wrong mounts for standard tractor. It is a 60" also and I never like those, they seem to scalp high spots, miss the low, plus not as easy to get around things. Be aware these are left hand discharge also and is harder to find blades for the 60". 48" is much better deck for cut and blades easy to find. 85 and up decks are Right hand discharge, as the engine is turned around in chassis on those and will not work on the metal tractors.

Thanks GL, that's why I couldn't ID that deck for sure never dawned on me to look at the 60" manual.

GL is dead on about the mowing results of a 60" deck. Need smooth level going for them to mow right or will high/low areas of grass and make the lawn look patchy. 50" is as wide as I would ever go.
