For ease of attachment to the tractor, follow the steps outlined below:

1.  The snow plow push bar attaches to the front of the tractor frame by means of 2 pins and 2 hair pin cotters as shown in figure 8. Position the snow plow with the push bar directly under the attaching points on the tractor, Tilt the push bar upward until the vertical projections on the push bar are in place on the tractor frame and insert the pins, and hair pin cotters.

2.  The lift lever quadrant on the side of the tractor contains a series of holes and a pin. Place the pin in the foremost hole of the quadrant and secure in place with hair pin cotter. Release the lift lever and place in a forward position. Attach the yoke end of front lift rod to the lift lever arm using 2nd hole from top, on the right hand side of the tractor, with yoke pin and hair pin cotter. Insert lower end of lift rod into lift arm bracket of push bar and secure with hair pin cotter. The lower end of the front lift rod is to point away from the tractor. See figure 9. At this point when the lift lever is about 1/4" away from the pin in the quadrant, the rotor housing should be in contact with the ground. This will allow the plow to follow the contours of the surface being plowed but the quadrant pin will prevent the lift lever from latching in the forward position if the plow is driven over a curbing.

3. Remove the protective plastic cover from the engine drive shaft and insert a key into the keyway. Apply a coating of grease to the bore of the drive group engine pulley and mount the pulley to the engine drive shaft.

See figure 10. Tighten the square head set screw securely.  For removal of this pulley from engine shaft insert a 3/8" - 16 x 3-1/2 lg. capscrew having at least 2-1/2" of thread length, into the threaded hole "A" of the bearing pin and tighten screw until pulley is loose from shaft.
