Thanks for all the good information!
It's fairly apparent I have the wrong casters.
I hooked up the mower last night and just moved the casters back out to the skid mounts where the previous owner had them.
If it comes to it I will just run without them until I find the correct ones.
Let me know if anyone has a set for sale and if anyone needs a set of the shorter ones, I got 'em!
Lengthen the arms. Welder and drill press should do the job.
I have an excuse. CRS.
Heck, stick them back on the outsides like they were and run it that way.

I run mine on the outside-I have no skid plates, and got a very uneven cut with the casters mounted more to the center.

The casters would be better set wide as to hold even height, but your yard is going to have to be very smooth so they hold even.
Mine were installed with one rear bolt in the hole and the front side clamped to the lift chain with bolt and washer.---worked good EXCEPT for front tire interference issues thanks; sonny
I have 3 size arms, 10"--14"-- and 17"-----the long ones rub on both deck and tractor tires when trying to turn short.
the parts deck I have are 10" straight arms WELDED to the outer skid runners!--(I have no idea how/if that git-up worked or not,--since I only bought it to get the spindles/runners/pulleys/ etc.
