I hope someone can offer some help. After servicing my recently acquired 2305, I started installing the bro-tek skid plates. Great folks to work with and a great product. The rear plate went on just fine, but the front plate had no place to mount the front of the plate. This picture is on my tractor:
Richard from Bro-tek called and said there is supposed to be a frame bracket/cross member under the two holes at the front of the skid plate as shown in this picture:
I have looked through all of the exploded parts diagrams but cannot find that brace/cross member? Can anyone help me to identify it? He said it was a dealer item and he couldn't think of why anyone would remove it. He said this was the first time he had run across this issue. Makes me special I guess.......
Any help appreciated!
