Hard to answer your questions without more info. You did not say what sizes the decks are, or what was "wrong" with the first deck! Tom

The running-board tractors had an eyelet to lift the mower deck -- the cutting height T-handle adjusters were also moved farther out toward the outside of the deck, so they'd clear the running boards. I use one of those later-model decks on my HB-216 -- I simply use a loop of chain that goes around the rear bail, out next to the right height adjuster, and pin it to the normal lift arm. You can't use the eyelet very well that's on the deck, because it's under the belly of the machine -- it bends the short piece of steel that's used as a lift arm, causing it to rub on the tractor's center tunnel...
