I have a 42" RD mower deck that I would like to convert to use on a '68 Charger 12. Has anyone done this? Other than drilling holes for the older brackets, are there any unforeseen problems?

Probably easier to convert your raider to an attach-a-matic. Gives you more options for decks/blowers.

I agree. I converted my 68 Raider 12 to the attach-a-matic system. I don't know if Daveomann still has parts or not but I bought them from him and it was really easy to do. I don't remember if I did a thread but I could dig up what I did if you want to go that way.

I converted my 1267 to tach a matic.

I agree.... better to add the Tach-o-Matic hardware to the tractor...easy to do.  I can set you up with everything needed to do this, along with line-by-line description of what to do.  Less than an hour...

send an email to me...I am:

Dave has the conversion parts and this upgrade will allow a whole range of implements to be used a lot easier than the old system - my original 1277 had the factory built bracket update kit on it when I first got into WH so I was a bit spoiled . Have converted tons of them since around here , generally use the later model C series bracket that utilizes a longer axle center pin and bolts to the front of the frame - those are the easiest to do on the older models . Works great and allows the range of newer decks with better hangers as well as other implements that use the front bracket system .
