I've been having problems with the deck on my 445 disconnecting from the draft arm. The only thing I noticed at first was the nylon lift arm bushings were broken and worn out, so I replaced them. After mounting the deck I discovered that when lowering the deck, instead of moving straight down it goes down and toward the front, causing the hooks in the deck to allow the draft arm to disconnect from the deck. I need help since the field is already a foot high and every time I go outside it starts raining!

Thanks,
Jon

Maybe the linkage bent before you replaced the worn out bushings. ....

When you say linkage, do you mean the steel plates on the deck where the "J hooks" attach? I did notice on the left side the plates are bent and I had to temporarily use a C clamp to prevent the deck from becoming disconnected from the J hook. Right now I have the deck removed, so some rust holes can be welded and I'm planning on heating up the plate so it can be bent back to the proper shape. Trying to find a used deck/shell for this tractor has been like pulling teeth from a crocodile. I did find one on eBay for $850.00 and it was in worse shape than my deck. On a different note, I ordered some new aftermarket side panels for the tractor but they were for a different 445, I'm guessing for a Zero Turn. The slots where the metal spring clips weren't even close lining up. Of course, JD has obsoleted a lot of the parts I want for this tractor so I'm at the mercy of the aftermarket... ....
