OK, you guys in the Greenwich time zone responded after my lunch, so I missed the chance to 'apply' you
I did get a pin to line up on both sides. The right bracket was turned around, the cutterbar manhandled a few times for the left pin- also used an old fashioned screw jack, then the other side lined up, didn't have an extra hitch pin that diameter, so put on a bolt with nut to lock it to the backet, then aligned and dropped the hook onto it... lowered the jack, and both hooks fell of the pins!
Now, am I to presume these are ment to pop up and off to aviod breaking something? I never used this mower, and seems to go with the hyrdaulic lift just fine.
Yes John, I have a collection of 'anti sway bars' to match up with lowers and brackets, and some are bent, and I may or may not need to straighten it, just part of the selection here.. and Sam.... the chain is on the most forward notches, do you think I should drop a link or two? And as I look at the top pic, the top bracket is not centred on the long pin, and with this contraption, every milimeter seems to count. I hope I am not trying to deal with something a past owner bowed out of proportion... I have no idea what a good one looks like!
BTW, without a team of mechanically inclined Irish supermodels on contract to Harry Ferguson LTD, this undertaking was 3 1/2 hours total.... most of it just staring aimlessly, but beat the 3 and a half days it took when I first took it home....
I owe that to some one on here pointing out the online manuals on the N tractor forum.
