Could be, hard to say without a better picture. It is at least misassembled.

I agree. With the correctly bent tab on there, the 2 sections should not be able to go in a straight line, as they are in the photo.

Also, to assure the two bars can pivot, there is supposed to be a bushing in the large hole of one of the two flat linkage/lift bars where they bolt together. I use the same one that the mounting arms have at the muledrive that allow the deck to pivot up and down.

Can't tell from the photograph, but the lift mechanism consists of 3 parts. Part #7 in Don's post is missing or incorrectly installed.

Part #7 is steel, 3/8" thick, 1 1/2" wide, 8 1/2" long, holes are 5 1/2" on center. There is a tab welded to the back side at an angle to keep the mechanism from over extending/collapsing/folding backward. The tab lets the mechanism fold upward, without buckling anything, in case the mower hits something.
I have an excuse. CRS.
