Re: JD 160 Riding Tractor/Mower - Re-attaching mower deck.
Alright, here are the pictures of our current mower deck situation:
The spring and bracket, not really attached, but where the bracket is in this picture is where I thought it went. As well, you can see the arm in the front there. We couldn't figure out which pin the arm went on, whether it was the one with the bracket/spring hanging on it, or the one behind it.
Here's another shot of the deck. That vertical bar/strap with the hole is one of the 2 straps we left attached. I believe the other one is right across from it, out of sight. And the cotter pin you can clearly see right up front is another thing we left on, that I forgot to mention in the first post
Here's the holes we were referring to when we mentioned 2 sets of holes. So we use the lower holes, yes?
Here's a full shot of our 160. The front bumper was added on by my father. We plan to repaint this mower. Essentially our plan is to repaint all the green areas with a new coat of John Deere green, paint the bumper yellow, and repaint the mower deck yellow, to make it look new.
So hopefully now that you've seen what our current situation is, can you possibly revise the above guide you posted (if needed)? We need to get the deck re-attached as it's been sitting in our garage taking up space for a few days now
