    Autoconnect Issue

    I went to remove my 60D autoconnect deck from my 1023e today. Set knob to install, unlocked the gauge wheel latches, flipped the deck lock in the rear, etc... (ain't my first time). Backed off, deck was sliding. Tried to reconnect and was pushing deck forward. Looked under and the draft arms/PTO were WAY too low and catching on the bar that goes between the deck latches in the rear, enough to bend the bar... And, no way it was hooking back up.

    I only remove the deck for winter. It came off fine last fall and went on fine last spring. The only thing I did to the deck this year was go through the setup/leveling procedure, as per the manual and the guidelines here on GTT, to gain some additional cutting height.

    I was able to get the deck off by raising the draft arms/PTO up a bit so to clear the rear deck latch arm, since PTO was already free.

    I can replace the bent latch arm thing, but I hope I didn't mess anything else up. And, it's not going back on next spring like this. Any ideas on why this occurred and/or how to correct it? If not, is there any concern with waiting until spring (since deck is off) before calling dealer in (other than $$$ because warranty is up). Thanks

    Did you have the mower sitting on a large mat or something? Anything to raise the height of just the mower, not the tractor?

    I always have it on a rubber horse mat to prevent sliding. I've never had issues before.

    If your tire pressures are low and you're raising the mower up on a thick mat, that could explain why your linkage was so low.

    Ok. I can, and will, check that. Is there only one all-the-way-down-position (aka- "install"), no matter if you adjust deck, because that's all I did different this year vs last? Draft arms/PTO looked WAY low to me. PTO shaft looked to be pointed down, maybe 45 degrees, too

    The PTO shaft pointing down is another matter altogether. There should be an adjustment bolt directly under the carrier bearing.

    You also don't have to lower the mower linkage all the way. Simply lower the mower until it's fully seated all the way around, not on the wheels. Then rotate the height knob one more setting lower when the mower is touching. That being said, something seems wrong if you need to do that. You may not have the clearance needed to get over the mower without hitting something or getting hung up altogether.

    Can you post some pics?

    I'll get some pics up, hopefully. In the meantime, can someone give me a part diagram/number for the rear lock/bar on the deck? I'm pretty sure I'll need to replace it and I cannot find a parts diagram

    I think it helps to have pto selector in the rear only position if I remember correctly. Let's the splined shaft move freely
