Yes I use the lift arm extensions and the top link bracket. Those things are a pain to hook up with the right brackets but the are really a pain with out the extensions and top link bracket. I have done it but it is not good for the tractor or mower to do that. If the mower lifts too high you can damage the pto shaft, that"s the reason for the lift arm extensions so you can"t lift it too high. Also if you lift it too high with the mower top link hooked into the tractors top link rocker it can cause the lift to bind. I"ve been there also. The top link brackets are fairly easy to find it"s the lift arm extensions that are getting tough to find. Most people just fabricate a set. They are supposed to be 8 3/4" long. If you have the money an original cast under the fender stabilizer bracket is the way to go. You do have the right hand bracket that has the ball for the break away bar under the fender don"t you? As far as using stabilizer brackets a lot of the old Ferguson and Dearborn implements used them and most of them were on the left side. Some used them on both sides of the tractor. Tillage implements like plows and disks didn"t use them, but cultivators, mowers,rakes, post hole diggers,etc...did. If you ever used a Ferguson rake on the back of one of those tractors and picked it up and turned fast with out a stabilizer bracket you would know why you need to use one. It will turn the front end of the tractor around when the weight of the rake swings to one side...

The bracket on the right side doesn't have the ball. It is just a regular bracket with a hole in it large enough to accept the large pin on the break away bar. I think that is another reason the mower rubs the right tire so bad because without the ball there is no give to the left.

I can tell it isn't good for the tractor the way it is and it makes it very difficult to operate. Every time you lift the implement it shifts into the right rear tire which makes it almost impossible to back up with the mower off the ground. I really didn't have an option this time, but I won't mow with it this way again now that I know.

And yes, it was a real job just to get it on the tractor.

When I got my 14-15 it came without the RH bracket(or any of the necessary brackets). I got the dimension (which I don't remember right now) from someone on the net. I cut off a section of a broken lower lift arm, cut a chunk out of the homade under axle bracket and welded the ball section to it. It's not too pretty but it works.

I would watch eBay and on here also for a set of the stabilizer brackets. They are the same brackets as the Ford N series tractor. The right hand one needs to have the ball in it. Here are some pics of the right hand bracket and the lift arms and top link bracket. A lot of times on eBay if you search for a Ford top link rocker some of the used ones on there will still have the top link bracket attached for those mowers because the sellers do not know what it is.

I'm looking for one of those top link brackets too. We've been scouring eBay and online sources trying to find one with no success. We already have most of the rest of the attach points hardware, such as the L and R under-axle brackets. But that top bracket has been elusive. We're to the point of thinking about making one. Can someone tell us what those set screws are for? The overall structure looks straightforward enough that our welding buddy could fab one for us, except for those set screws.

Scored a top link bracket on Ebay today!

If anyone is still looking for one, I may know where another one is. Believe it or not, I was looking at Ford tractors on Craigslist and saw the bracket on the back of a Ford 600. I texted the guy and he is going to look at it tomorrow and let me know if he will sell it separate. Then out of the blue, I run into another on Ebay. 2 in 2 days and I"ve been looking for 4 months....
