I took the front end and power steering off my D-15 tractor a few weeks ago and when I put them back on I had four large bolts left over. I looked the tractor over several times but could not find out where they should go. A few nights later I was lying in bed and it hit me. There is a steel plate running from one side rail to the other side rail. It requires 8 bolts and I had only put in four. Luckly the four bolted it to the engine and I could install those wiuthout having to remove anything.
