I've got an old 60 inch Woods Rotary on the back of my 3 cylinder 4000, and mine needs the top link the be shortened to the point where the front of the mower deck is tilting down at the front about 1 to 1.5 inches lower than the rear of the deck when the tail wheel touches the ground for the PTO shaft to be clear for the full lift range. It still mows fine. Over on the lawn tractor forum they're always talking about how to adjust the mower decks on their machines to get the best cut and they all say that the mower is supposed to be tilted so the front is a little lower than the rear.

Thanks Guys,
I do have an ORC and the tractor hydraulics are in Position control. I will get a shorter top link and lower the tailwheel as several folks suggested and hope for the best. Will report back.

The situation is made worse by my tractor"s hydraulics: The lift arms always go up when you lift the control and always go down down when you put it down, and it will mostly hold any position you leave it in, but the relationship between the control location and the location of the lift arms is very inexact and non-repeatable. So you can"t use the wing-nutted stop to accurately limit the lift arm height.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

my mower never comes within two inches of that height.
