I have the 900 and the 38" mower deck all done . I am having problems mounting the mower to the tractor. I am not even sure if the curved linkage under the tractor is correctly aligned. A few good pic's would be a big help.

I don't have pics, but I have three sledges, a torch, two grinders, and can-do attitude.

PM me your address, I can be there tomorrow morning.
Oh no! No need for a hack job , I have pictures!!!!! :thumbs: :D

If your bracket is from anything later than a Bolens 1000 it will not work with these decks.

In your first pic the bracket that you have mounted on the front of the drive line tunnel cover and dangling loose I have mount on the rear of mine. This deck came off this tractor so it should go back on. I just don't have that rear linkage right. I still can not figure it out even with your pics.

I was hoping that you would have a plasma cutter also. But hey thanks for the offer.

The front linkage in my pic does not get used with the deck so pay no attention to that, Should have mentioned that but forgot to.

I have studied the pics until I can no longer see straight and I have come to the conclusion that I am missing some linkage.

Here are some pictures of the linkages. Not sure if this helps?
Thats for a 1970's deck

Deerlope has the early 60's 38'' Deck

There's only 4 mounting points on these early decks

Fred do you have the two rear deck rods that attach from the back of the deck to the transmission tabs?

Sometime you have to step away from what you are doing. So last evening I took the pup and the wife for some ice cream. Then we took the long way home down along the ST Lawrence river. I was in no hurry to address it again this morning but I did. It all just kind of fell into place. It is all on and leveled with the blades on it now. All that has to be done is some light touch up and the blade guard which I will paint orange or safety yellow. Actually this is a 1965. Yes Doc I do have the two rear rods. Thanks to all that has help me with this task.

Glad to hear you figured it out!

The chute guard for these I have seen painted the same as the deck and some I seen painted red in the Bolens brochures
