Hello fellow enthusiasts,
I recently bought a 42" thrower for my GT245 that I got about 2 months ago so I'm fairly new. And before you say RTFM, I don't have one the person who sold me is sending it soon.
Meanwhile back at the garage. I did find a "manual" for the thrower online but I'm still running into some problems. The pictures will help in my descriptions.
Problem number 1.
The riser bar that comes from the left side of the front thrower bolts onto the frame closely how it looks in the picture but I'm either missing the bracket the online manual shows or am I supposed to drill? The bar to the left of the black bar looks like that's what it might hook to but there is no way it would reach.
Side question, what is that small green bar for.
Problem number 2 isn't so much a problem as a question.
The bar coming from the bottom left and moving toward the camera is just kind of hanging out there and I have no idea where I am to put it. (Not the chute spinning bar but the one that is not connected to anything).
Problem number 3.
The bracket holding the chute spinning rod doesn't seem to be close enough to bolt onto anything, high or low. The final two pictures os just showing where it should go.
The guy that sold this dealt with all John Deere garden equipment and said it came from a 345 and it should fit no problem, but I might need to order something. He would reimburse me for any extra parts so I wont be out too much. Thank you guys very much for taking the time to help a stranger.
