The brackets under the axle should be slack on the long bolts so they can move slightly. Fit the Pin on the bracket so that it is directly opposite the lower link Pivot Pin. Because of the Multitude of brackets available for different tractors, you need to have the correct ones or they will not allow the bars to pivot without bending. Attach the bars to the bracket pins and the implement end and lift the implement clear of the ground so that the lower links are horizontal. Now push the implement across the width of the tractor a few times just to allow everything to line-up. Now making sure that the Top Link is in-line with the tractor so the implement is central to the tractor. Now tighten the Fender Bolts and providing that you have the correct brackets, the implement will lift and lower without bending the stabilizer bars, if they do bend then suspect that the brackets are wrong. The Stabilizer Bars should be the same length as the Lower Link arms of the 3 point, Centre to Centre of the pin holes. If you have adjustable bars, set them the same length as the lower link arms on the 3 point, just because you can adjust them to fit without trying to adjust the brackets under the axle will not allow them to move in the same arc as the lower link arms and something will bend or break. Any problems you may have with Stabilizers is almost always due to incorrect setting of the Brackets and pins under the axle and you tend to shy away from adjusting the brackets because the bolts are rusted and difficult to slacken off the nuts, but there is no easy way if you want it correct..John(UK)
