no square rods included. i couldnt take the motor off and get the rods, i had like 30 mins to get it off the tractor, get the tractor and everything loaded and reassemble the snowblower lol. some flat steel should be suitable.
No just any flat steel will not work as these were made to take place of the spacers.If you were to use just any flat steel then all the belts would not fit.

Umm,there are no square rods to mount under the motor
As long as you have the mount for the cylinder the rods can bee made.I belive i may have a set but if not i can measure them for you and send the mearsurments to you or canmake a set for you.If you don't have the plate for the cylinder i know i have one of those if you need it.

Mounting the Lift is fairly easy. You will need to remove the drive belts to get the hydro belt put on.
These pictures may be of some help to you
If you don't want to go to the trouble of removing the belts, you can do what I did with my G10, and use one of these:
High Performance Composite Belting - PowerTwist Plus, NuTLink and SuperTLink - Fenner Drives
They aren't cheap, but the time and effort that it will save you will make it worth it.

Hey Buzz I see from your pic that you only have 2 belts and that setup looks great.I have 4 belts,I assume I need to take 1 off and replace with pump belt once I get it mounted?
The picture oldbuzzard is using is off a G10 which only used a single belt for both the high and low range.
The hydrailic lift uses its own pulley groove.
On yours you should have 2 matched pairs of drivebelts that you will have to remove from the engine pulley to slip the hydraulic belt on.

If I would have had an earlier G10 I wouldn't have had to use the link belt. But, with the B&S engine, the throttle and choke cable is RIGHT where the belt would have to go. It was either disconnect the choke/throttle, install the belt, re-connect the choke/throttle, or use the link belt and just wrap it around the choke/throttle. The latter, while a bit more expensive, was a LOT easier and faster.
With the earlier G10 it's just a simple matter of removing the single drive belt, installing the hydro belt, and then reinstalling the drive belt.
With the 'standard' tube frames, the "Good Doctor" explains it quite well here:
