Reach out to JP Tractor Salvage and HamiltonBobsCubs (links at the bottom). JP can probably find the exact part.
HamiltonBobsCubs may have the parts for a numbered loboy (154, 185, 184). It won't be an exact fit, but may be similar enough to make it work.

This is my 1955 Cub Lo-boy with a Woods 59CL-4 mower. These pictures may help you visualize what you need but as others have mentioned, besides the "bridle" assembly, you will need both rear mounting brackets that are used to attach the rear "bridle" arms to the final drives. If you can't find the parts you need and you think you might want to fabricate everything, I can draw up some dimensioned sketches for you. Just let me know.

Hi,
Maybe you could ask the person you bought the tractor from if the missing mower parts are there at his place. :)

:thanx:
Thank you all for the continuing info stream. The photos from Bud are especially helpful as I've not seen it mounted before. I have contacted the previous owner and he said he does not have any other pieces, and I went over and searched through his barn.
Bud, I may take you up on the dimensioned sketches offer...or come look at it in person.. :)

There's a fella in Biglersville PA (near Gettysburg) who just listed a Woods 59 off his Farmall Cub on Craigslist. The rear brackets are probably a little longer since the Farmall stands taller than a lo-boy but you should be able shorten them if need be. I'm sure eveyrthing else would work just fine. Just a thought.

My bad....disregard my previous post. The Farmall Cub uses a completely different frame assembly for mounting the Woods 59 mower deck.

Hi guys, I have contacted jp tractor and they currently do not have the needed parts. Also, messicks.com does not have them. I would be grateful for any dimensioned sketches or photos with dimensions so I can have at it with home brew fabrication. The grass is growing like a teenager and the Craftsman rider mower is getting bummed out. Thanks everyone!

Allan...Here are the details for the support arms and the center cross brace. I'm still working the rear brackets which I'll send later. The drawings are pdf files so you can zoom in for a closer look. Also added some more photos.

Hey Bud, Thanks so much for the photos and drawings! Wicked helpful to me...and others probably too. Seeing the photos from multiple angles really helps in visualizing the whole setup. Can't say thanks enough for the time you put into making dimensioned drawings. I need to get me some stock to start fabbing and some tinkering time. Apologies to all if I seem dense about this project but it is a whole new animal to me and I don't want to rig it so wrong that I get an epic catastrophic failure :shock: .

Allan...Here are the bracket details. You'll note they are different from Messicks parts diagram. Mine may be an earlier version. I've got the old girl split so I couldn't move her outside for better lighting for the photos. The one that's a little hard to recognize is a shot at the backside of the bracket through the wheel rim. Let us know how things go with your project.

Thank you Sir Bud for the additional drawings. :worthy:
I might make test parts out of wood to check for fit and all that...
Hope to get on this project soon! Thank you again! :thanx:

I have the same type mower that came with my 56 LoBoy (PO used it) I have connected it and of course messed up the belt pathway, but these pics are a big help. I have to change a spindle bearing and need to take the blade off...what a dog! Trying penetrating oil and we'll see. PO said the bearings can be had at NAPA and are 10 bucks or so.

Take note that the part of the belt that goes back to the left rear idler pulley has a 3/4 twist (counter- clockwise when looking to the rear) in it. This keeps your belt in place since the idler pulley assembly is offset from the center spindle centerline.
