    Auto connect adjustment

    I have a 1026r and mid mower with auto connect and hyd. lift. My issue is the auto connect is angled too far down to engage the mower spline. I have the bolt adjusted out to it's full length and it's still not level to engage the mower spline. I've ordered some longer bolts which will bring it up to level, but there must be something else out of adjustment. However, I can't figure out what. Everything looks OK. I shouldn't have to put a longer bolt in. Does anyone else have this issue or suggestions?

    Are you talking about this bolt?

    It's a pretty long bolt. Do you have the right one? Is the tab it contacts broken off or bent?

    Yes, that's the bolt and it's the one that came with the tractor and it's not bent and is the correct length (120mm).

    Can you provide a few pics? I suspect something other than the bolt is causing your issue. Perhaps something else is installed incorrectly.

    Did this just happen? Did something break?

    I won't have any pictures for a day or 2 (need to do some mowing). Nothing is broken, that I can see. If something is installed wrong, the dealer did it, but everything looks OK. The "pins" on the lift are at the correct height to engage the mower but the "quick coupler" is angled down too far. I don't remember for sure but I think this has been this way from day one.
    Thanks for your help.

    If it's been this way since day one, I'd be talking to the dealer. Something wasn't installed correctly would be my guess. You and your tractor deserve to be setup and adjusted correctly. You should not need a longer bolt.

    If you choose to do this yourself, we can help. Just post a few detailed pictures of your Auto-Connect mechanism in the install position without the mower. This way we can see everything and how it's been put together.

    I'll get some pictures in a day or 2 and post them. Is it possible that the 2 (4) slotted straps ( LVU29616 Strap 4 ) are installed wrong?

    Make sure the PTO shaft is lubricated (there is a zerk). It slides in and out and if it gets bound up it could affect the position of the auto connect. At the same time, grease the universal joints on the PTO shaft. And be 100% sure the PTO coupler is locked when you reconnect the PTO shaft to the tractor.

    Thanks, I will check that out.
    Also, my wife reminded me that this problem wasn't always this way. So, maybe something "got loose" or I messed it up somehow!?

    I had the front four of the six bolts that attach the coupler to the arms come loose on mine, lost a couple of them. When I put things back together with low strength Loctite I coupled to the deck (by hand) with all the bolts loose and tightened them in this position. Then I adjusted the long bolt to have a small gap to the plate and Loctited it. Problems solved. Not a lot of room under there with that method but just putting bolts back in hanging I had the same issue you described.
