A few shots of what I have so far, always nice to do all the hard stuff first... also note: enhanced 3rd link positions . This will extremely enhance the lift and role of attachments at there rear most points. ;) :)

With the addition of just 1 more hole position I have increased the center link variations to 10 different locations.
You might think this is to costly and complicated but I assure you once you play around with them you will find them priceless .
When I was using my most current version that is installed I wanted one more hole lower and in just a tick for the tiller to maximize lift with out killing the driveshaft , walla !
And it is very easy to change too.
You will not be disappointed this unit works awesome ! And it is just like the full sized units with all the same kinds of adjustments that they have .

OK a sequence of steps to install your rocker assembly.
Step 1: disassemble your new rocker assembly as shown in picture 1.
Step 2: next mount the left side pto bracket , rocker shaft, and the center link assembly and mount this assembly to the left side of the frame as shown in photo 2. Leave the bolts loose at this point.
Step 3: slide the rocker shaft all the way to the left, next mount the right side pivot bracket with the bolts and nuts and slide the shaft in all the way.
Step 4: install the woodruff key in its slot and install rocker lift arm . Be sure to notice the orientation of the short arm. It must be on top, slide it in fully and install bolt or roll pin ( both will be provided). Now move the rocker shaft to be sure it moves with a little to no effort as you tighten the bolts . If you have a pto shaft as well you may need to adjust the left side for clearance at the rocker shaft pivot. You will notice a relief in it just for this reason . Tighten this side up and check for free movement. If all is free your good to go and install the lift bar from the aux. Lift point under the right foot rest. Install the slotted end at the rocker shaft with the shoulder bolt provided and lock nut and washer Do Not over tighten this as it needs to move in the slot for float. Pin the aux. End with the pin and clip provided.

Should take about an hour max to install as it is easy Peasy.
