    JD420 seat issue

    Could someone tilt their 420 seat forward and take a picture of the mounting. I have a feeling mine is on wrong, but can't figure out what is right. Either it is bolted in the wrong holes or the springs are just way too weak, I want to make sure it's bolted right before I buy new springs.

    Thanx Eric

    Eric,

    My supension seat is somewhat different than the plain flip up without suspension, so the photo below may not apply. Also I had an aftermarket "universal-fit"seat so I moved the mounting holes in the flip plate back to use that seat's threaded inserts and still get a proper spacing to the steering wheel. I have also included the parts diagrams from the PC 1924 which may help...

    Chuck, that parts picture shows where the bolts are suppose to go so that should work. Thanx Eric
