ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS FOR TRACTORS WITH
STEP 1:
(Figure 8)
Identify and position the right base bracket as shown in
figure 6. Attach the right base bracket to the front holes of
a round base leg tube. Make only finger tight. Repeat
for the left base bracket.
STEP 2:
(Figure 9)
Insert the ends of the base leg tubes into the upper base
tube.
STEP 3:
(Figure 10)
Raise the tractor seat and remove the springs and bolts
from the rear fender using a 1/2" socket for GT tractors or
a 9/16" socket for LT tractors.
STEP 4:
Place the base tube assembly onto the rear fender.
Check for clearance with the seat lowered and the rear
bagger (optional) attached. If needed, reposition the base
brackets to a different set of holes in the base tubes.
STEP 5:
(Figure 10)
Attach the seat springs and the base brackets to the rear
fender using the spring bolts that you removed. On GT
tractors, if the bolts removed were less than 1" long, use
5/16" x 1" bolts and 5/16" washers from the parts bag.
Align the base leg tubes on the rear fender. Tighten with
moderate force using a 1/2" socket (GT) or a 9/16" socket
(LT).
STEP 6:
(Figure 11)
If the base tubes rest down against the top of the
fender, install the rear base support brackets. Attach an
adhesive pad to the bottom of each bracket then attach
the brackets to the appropriate holes in the base support
tubes. Adjust the brackets to lift the base tubes above the
fender, then tighten.
STEP 7:
Tighten the bolts assembled in step 1.
