What mower are you using? Looks like your '60 model has the steering gear arm for the tractor with the 105 mower. Just curious about the mower because the steering gear arm has a specific part number to be used with the 105 mower instead of the one with one tie rod from the top and one from the bottom. This change was made at SN 4802 (1957) as listed in Parts Manual TC-37F Rev 6, 8/79.

that is the type of steering that came on "highway loboys" mostly made for ditch mowing, also they had 15" front wheels, duals in the back, maybe speed reducers also

The pic shows some of the hardware necessary to install a speed reducer on the left axle. The location of the left rear tire and fender also leads me to believe a speed reducer is mounted on the left axle.

This is a stretched highway mower LoBoy. It has dual despeeders, one on each side.
It was originally yellow, was painted red some years ago. The mower is a Woods 59 as best as I can tell, and has been modified to fit the tractor.

WOW, that's a REALLY Low, Lo-boy!!! That would be awesome for mowing ditches and banks! I bet nothing could flip it over with the finals turned backwards like that and it having the really short spindles. Very cool!!!
