NOTE: Not all of the parts in the deck adapter hardware package wil! be used for any one particular fit up. = NOTE: Make sure adapter clears gauge wheels on mower deck Remove the mower discharge deflector from your mower deck. Save the deflector and hardware for remounting deflector. DECK ADAPTER IF YOU HAVE A MURRAY TRACTOR WITH A 38"or 40" DECK, SKIP DIRECTLY TO PAGE 17. IF YOU HAVE A MURRAY TRACTOR WITH A 46" DECK, SKIP DIRECTLY TO PAGE 18. & CAUTION: Curl on deck may be located outside of adapter or inside depending on deck opening design Mower deflector must be replaced when Vac System deck adapter is removed. Do Not operate mower unless adapter or deflector is in place and properly moun_ed. FIGURE 29 Identify your mower deck (see fold outs) and cut out the correct discharge opening template for your mower deck size. If there is no template for your deck size you can make your own template by marking around a piece of cardboard held against the edge of the discharge opening. Holding the adapter bracket and the deck adapter together, position the deck adapter on the mower deck. Keeping the edge of deck adapter as close as possible to the offset in the adapter bracket, see if the slot in the adapter bracket can be aligned with one or two of the deflector holes in your mower deck's discharge opening. If the bracket can not be located correctl_ using existing holes, it will be necessary to drill one or two 5/16" diameter holes in the deck. See figure 30. Tape the template to the face of the adapter, locating template approximately 1/2" from front and 1/4" down from top of adapter. Keep as close to top as possible. See figure 28.
