Not sure if these will help you or not 

The last one comes close, but it's blurred real bad.

While waiting for mower parts to arrive, I decided to repair the skid shoes for this. They were in bad shape.

Found some stock and bent the ends to match.

Trimmed the originals for a band saw cut.

Trimmed the excess off the 'new' parts.

Ground some bevels and welded them together.

That's good, but I need to know the hole location as marked here:

post-63590-0-61465000-1592854222.jpg

 

Can't tell if it's 1", 1-1/4", or 1-1/2" over to it.

Can't give you an exact answer but I did some guesstimating using squares on the picture in case someone doesn't come up with a better answer.  I assumed that the two holes at the left side are 1/2" diameter ( I realize that the back one for the cylinder is slotted a bit) and made each square represent 1/2".  Given the camera angle and distortion it may be off a bit but you can check out the distance between the centre pivot bolt and the two edges to see if that distance is in the ball park - may help you a bit.

Thanks, Stew. But it's not correct. The part is 10-1/4" wide, making the center pivot hole at 5-1/8". That hole is 3/4". Those other two are probably 1/2", I know the one closest to the bend up is. I don't want to weld this in to find out it's wrong/won't work right. Plus it's easier to drill those holes on the drill press. Someone will come up with what I need, I'm not in a big rush anyway.

Kenny, do you have, or can you get this bracket? Everything will fall into place if you can get that. Or was your plan to make that part as well?

I planned to make that, but may have to see about buying one. The 316 has only one spool, so angle will be manual for now.

Just checked and Mother Deere wants nearly $150 for that part! Not in my budget!

I''ll take a crack at it. I've used Photoshop's selection tool info box before to extrapolate dimensions from photos.

 

First I rotated the image to horizontal to reduce angular error. Then I scaled the image so within the side plates was 10.25" and verified the halfway mark was 5.125. Then a second selection to the center of the hole in question gave me 1.125" or one & one-eighth inch. A little screengrab, copy/paste and this composite image shows both selections with photoshop's measurement of the length. Ta-Da!

 

So it can't be too far off from that mark.

That looks pretty close. Thank you.

Using the data Compact7 supplied above, I went to work on the 'new' part this morning. I have it welded together now and can start working on this again as time allows.

Took about 30 minutes and I had it dissected.

Next up was smoothing old welds.

Got to try to get this back closer.

Best I can get.

I put the parts back into the blade to help in locating them. Got them aligned well and tacked it all. Took it back out and finished the welding. Rechecked fit and all is good. Gave it a coat of Rust Reformer for now.

Also coated the feet.
