    Autoconnect

    Can anyone give me any advice. I have the 54" autoconnect deck for the 1025r. When I went to mow today I noticed the PTO did not sound right so I took a look. The two pieces did not line up last time I put the deck on. On the 1025r it seems as though there is nothing keeping it from dropping fully so it is not lining up level with the mower deck, but rather dropping about 45 degrees down. Thoughts?

    Looks like the bolt came lose and I lost the mech that hits the deck...so much for mowing the lawn today.

    Pictures would help to diagnose. It takes a few "On"-"Off" trial and error episodes till you really get the Auto_Connect under your belt. Don't ask How I know this.

    Missing the bolt that holds the carrier bearing level? Seems to be a common issue with a new tractor. These get installed, some never get tightened. In short order they come loose, fall off, and when you disconnect the mower, the bearing flops over and prevents re-connection. This should be covered under warranty, no questions asked.

    Now that is one thing I have not experienced yet? Have to check it out before I put the blower on.

    So my thought was wrong, bolt is there just possibly out of alignment?

    Sorry it is a bad picture I put it away for the night it was getting to dark to fight with it.

    Hopefully you can make it out in the picture, but the couple is sitting below the shaft

    Need a lock washer

    Mine fell off the first time I fired up my mowing deck. Fortunately, I was on my driveway and it was easy to find. Given the vibration this assembly must see, shouldn't there be a lockwasher? I found a flat washer and the nut, but no lock washer. My bolt didn't have time to fall out, apparently.

    OUCH! Looks complicated. Looks like a dealer issue. If not, try and get the deck completely free of the tractor and work it from there.

    That was my plan, at least it is almost winter. I had it off earlier today but put it back on with the same problem. Next thing you know it was dark. I guess I know what I will be attempting Saturday morning.

    There's a tab the bolt rests on. The tab is welded to the cross-shaft. Is that there? We have seen at least one owner report that tab breaking off. You can see the tab I'm referencing in my picture I posted earlier.
