Are you saying the blades will not engage when the mower deck is at it's highest position?
If so, the belt is too loose and needs replaced. If you lower it while engaged, do the blades start to turn?

No. what I am saying is that I can not lock the deck when placed in the highest point. Thelever pin will not lock into the bracket. And the replacement bracket is obsolete.
