Mounting a model 18422 01 deck under a 1053. I have no information on how the rear of the deck is to lift. The link from the rear cross rod hits the foot rest block before the deck rises. Anyone have photos on how this is to be put together to work properly please? I have the short curved link attached to the bottom of the lift arm on the tractor and this raises the front OK. Now to get the back to come up. Thanks for your help.

They have a 4 point mounting system.

Do you have the hanger kit that attaches to the tractor chassis?

See pics below:

Yes, I have the two rock shafts thjat are bolted to the tractor. This deck was with the tractor when I bought it. I don't think I got all that was supposed to go with the deck though. I can get the front to lift but the back won't lift the wheels off the ground before the link strikes the back of the foot rest block.

I am on my laptop in the shop and cannot upload photos form this unit. Just got a new machine in the house and haven't got it all up and running yet.

There is a flat link that runs from the back lift link to the front lift link, on the right hand side. It goes over the foot rest.
What is the distance between the holes on this link?

Attached is a pdf of the 18421- 01 deck Owners Manual - it appears to be very similar in the way it mounts.

Thanks for the update. I am missing one part, #55 in the diagram. If I had the measurement center to center for the holes in this link I can make one with no problem. Is the whole deck to left together or does the front lift higher than the back? Hard to see in the photos if the wheels are lifted or not. I don't see how the back can raise much with the lift link hitting the foot rest spacer block.

The later decks with this style mounting system do not lift as high as the earlier green ones.

Snow needs to melt before I make a hike to the shed for dimensions.... maybe someone has a used one handy.....

I have something that will work. I raised the front of the deck with the lift lever. Then placed a block under the back of the deck to hold it up. Marked the top link where the holes should be. Drilled it and put in on. Seems to work OK. Going to run with it anyway. Appreciate all the information from you guys.
