Anyone have any tips on getting the tractor in line with the deck so the pins on the tractor line up with the receiver slots on the deck?
When I did my first deck removal, it was a piece of cake to reverse the process and reattach. That was because the tractor only moved back and forth with no side to side movement. I immediately remounted the deck after un-mounting it, so the tractor only moved back and forth. Lately, when driving up to the unmounted deck, I have no problem aligning the left front tire with the 1/2" rod by the drive over bracket, but that does not necessarily mean the rear of the tractor is dead on perpendicular to the deck. If the rear of the tractor is an inch or 2 too far left or right, the pins on the tractor won't be aligned with the slots in the deck, making a retry necessary which means trial and error jockeying to get the tractor into correct alignment on the subsequent attempts. Took 3 attempts last night to get a connection.
