Hi Kevin, Get all of the manuals for your VAI, (parts, service , and operators) As soon as you can, you will be SO glad that you did.They clear up just about everything. I cant answer your question about installing the pto and lift parts from another tractor on your VAI, but I do have the VA series service manual. The 3 Large bolts you mentioned are the ajusting screws for the "disk" type brakes on you tractor, The following is a quote from the service manual on adjusting disk type brakes:(1) Jack up the rear wheel. (2) Remove one adjusting screw and clean thoroughly. Coat threads with a light film of oil. (3) Replace adjusting screw and follow same procedure with remaining two screws individually. DO NOT remove more than one screw at a time. (4) Tighten all three adjusting screws by hand as tightly as possible (5) Back off each screw 1/2 turn. (6) Turn rear wheel to test for drag on brakes. (7) If any drag is felt, back off adjusting screws evenly untill drag is eliminated. (8) Lock adjusting screws with capscrews. NOTE: If a wrench is used to turn adjusting screws,tighten evenly untill a noticeable drag can be felt by turning the wheel and then back off screws 1/4 to 1/2 turn to provide clearance against drag. BRAKE EQUALIZATION: To make certain each brake lining has the same amount of clearance, position jack under tractor, block securely, and raise rear wheels. Start engine and operate tractor in third or fourth gear. Apply brakes slowly and observe for braking action: wheels should slow down evenly and simultaneously. If one wheel stops turning and the other rotates adjust brakes untill both brakes are equally effective. BRAKE ROD ADJUSTMENT : Adjust the brake rod to have 1/8" free movement in brake pedal travel. Remove cotter key and pin,loosten nut, and adjust yoke end of rod to obtain correct setting. END Hope this helps you out, brakes can be a good thing to have, especially around the hilly terrain you are in. Tom
