Good Evening Everyone,
I've been to all the local shops and they have not been able to help me.

Recently I purchased a 1990 Cub Cadet 1541.
Model: 141661100, Serial: 813576

Included was an International Harvester Rotary Tiller.
Model: 2, Serial: 3130283U20242.

The problem is the tiller's manual doesn't show the same hookups that my tractor has.
It bolts up nicely and the tiller works but I am not able to raise or lower it.

The rod below the right arm moves in and out with the hydraulics but the two arms do not move.
They act as if they are locked. Is there a trick to getting these to move?


Here is a picture of the tiller if that helps any.


Thanks for any help in advance.

One step closer!
There was a pin I needed to push in on the right side to release the arms. They are now moving!

Next problem:
The tiller doesn't go down far enough.
It only comes down far enough to touch the ground. I believe it should go down about another 6".

I figure either the hydraulic arms should come down further or the guy gave me the wrong side brackets.

Here is a picture fully lowered. Think the side bracket is too short?
Notice the hydraulic arm at it's lowest point is vertical.



Here is another for the heck of it.

I just realized I posted this in the wrong section.
Please move if necessary. Sorry about that!
