Cmon now, If I sent you pictures there would be proof for the ******ed install.

The velke comes with a universal plate, take the plate and a magic marker. put the plate in the center and mark you holes to drill.

for 95% of the installs, the T shaped link should be on the BOTTOM not (upside down) on the top...there are a FEW installs ive seen where its better on top but usually not.
If you have questions just call wright themselves they can help out.

I was hoping to not install the plate as its a very tight fit the way the bolts stick out the back and a bar that goes across. I'll snap some pics to show you what I'm taking about later.
The plate has 2 bolts to bolt it into the frame and the velke piece has 2 bolts that bolt into that. But those bolts stick out the back of the plate and there's not much room for them to fit.

youre good....

hook up the velke, make sure the tail doesnt drag on the ground...it should slant backwards but not so much the back is dragging.
if this is happening your install is too high

if your install is too low, you will have a tendency to lift the mower up if you hop on the velke with your feet.

if neither of these happen your good.... by looking at it, youre good.

hook it up, give it a whirl

Thanks. I'll take it for a spin and check for any necessary height adjustments.
