Well I bought one Saturday. Don't know if it works or not but looks pretty complete and only paid $100.00. I do know it's missing the brackets that go on the lift bars for the 2 stabilizer things with the ball on the end. It has a bracket with the arm attached to the bottom of the mower that looks like tie rod ends on it. with the place for a ball. Does anybody have a operators manual or pictures so I can see what I'm missing? Are parts available or does anybody have the brackets they want to get rid of? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I think you can go to the N tractor club website and download the manuals.

Danny, 501 is a good mower. I still have one sitting in the back of the shed. Although it will work without the stabilizer hooked up, I found it best to use it. You can have the arm fabricated easily. My old Massey had an L shape bracket welded to the lift arm and I bolted the stabilizer arm to it. I attached it to my Kubota lift arm with a large u-bolt. Good luck.

You need a parts manual for that. Different model of tractors would take different clamps. Example would be the 4 cylinder 4000 to the 3 cylinder 4000, entirely different lift arms and what fits the 4 cylinder tractor cat 1 hitch will not fit the 3 cylinder cat 2 hitch.

$$$ for the parts you mention that everyone loses.

I've never used those type stabilizer bars with mine, my tractor has stabilizer bars on the three point arms already.

The tie rod is used to lift and suspend the far side of the bar. You need tge clamp that goes onto the left three point arm. You can weld one up a lot cheaper than find one..... .
