So here are some pics the guy i got it from said it was new old stock when he got it he only used it once. I think i got it for a good price at 250.00. I do have the rear mounts for it and the front original mount.

I have the exact same model. It was originally off of a big simplicity tractor. I was going to mount it on my c-160 , so i got a right angle gear . The angle gear would be mounted to a bracket , welded to the front plate of the mower so one shaft lines up with the PTO and the other shaft would line up with the pulley on the mower...belt tensioning would be achieved by a flat pulley and a spring similar to what we use on a snowblower. That was my first idea. My second idea was to cut off the entire front of the mower off so the shaft would be behind the mid tach. Then weld a bracket to mount the mower to the mid tach. Then mount the right angle drive to the shaft with a lovejoy coupling so the other right angle shaft would be in the same position as a regular mower deck. Then the mule drive from your rotary mower could be mounted to the front tach and tension would be the same as a rotary mower. Just as i was about to fabricate this contraption , i bought a couple of D series machines and realized this mower fits perfectly under them...problem solved with just a little mounting bracket fabrication and there is plenty of room under that tractor . As much as i like to fabricate things , this mower is a tight fit under the C series machines.

Rayshorses i agree with you i spent some time last night eyeballing things and its gonna be a tight fit i think iam gonna put it on my 953 still iam gonna have to redo the front mount and make somekind of belt drive or angle gear box.

Looks like it would mount to a D series tractor. 

Nice looking herd you have there, really digging that GT14.

So i found a gear box and fabed up a mount and it works!!! Now all i have left to do is fab up a guard for the angle box, paint, and wait for the weeds to grow.
