L-22 pictures on TM Tractor site.
http://www.tmtractor.com/tm-tractor/gim/22com_001.htm
When the mower is used on a tractor with Fast-Hitch, it has a couple extra parts to hold it up while the hitch is in use. You can see the extra parts in the top picture, the clevis hanging in the lift chain and the red bracket bolted to the bell housing. Otherwise the mower is the same.

I thing I'm good for mounting brackets.Rear is the same as the yellow loboy in the pics.Hangs straight down from the pto.Looks to be a clear path on a bit of an angle for the drive and the straps to the belly are the short ones.Don't see the forward brace .someone used a chain. I can make that and the missing shields .and a hang up bracket.Thanks for all the help and support.Tractor needs a carb job;runs good but gas spills out the carb when I shut it off. Some noise in the tranny;owner said 1st and reverse idler gear needs replaced

You probably have the pulley for a Farmall. Go back to the pictures on TM Tractor and look at the pulleys.

You can use the tapered hub as used on several of the rotary mowers along with the appropriate size matching pulley. The pulley is available from many industrial suppliers (easier to find than the hub). Here is a picture of the one I used before I got the pulley shown in the TM pictures. This works fine for the Lo-Boy. The Farmall pulley has to extend past the PTO shaft so you can't get belt alignment unless you use the outer groove of a double pulley. I must still have that pulley around here somewhere.

That is what we call a browning pulley and I think I found one in my stash.No local suppliers here any more so we travel 75 miles or that kind of thing

TM sold the bushing at one time but might not have it any more. Some info I have saved on this is: the bushing is Case IH part number 296761A1. Note: sizes and ID info copied from parts: BROWNING HX .975-10 taper lock bushing mated to a Browning single sheave BK90H (double-2BK90H) which is 8.75 inches in diameter. The Browning # for the taper lock bushing is H 978 10 SPL B, the sheave comes in several different diameters. You can check the web for different sizes available. Hope this is useful. Stan

I believe I have seen that bushing on Amazon. Really resonable. Good Luck! ...Frank

If you put an 8.75" pulley on, the sickle bar mower will be running at LIGHT SPEED...

A 4.5" pulley is the original size for early Cubs before the RPM increase. It will also work after the RPM increase by running the engine slower.
