First season with my 1450. Came with the blower already on it. First time attempting installing the mower deck and mule drive. This is what I got. What am I missing, if anything? I haven’t dived down the YouTube rabbit hole yet. Thanks.

Your mule drive looks different than mine - almost looks like someone hacked the tabs off the front. But then again, it may be off a different model that I haven't seen...
anyways, the tabs go in the ears, the back of the mule drive has the holes where the spring loaded pins go. 3/4 way back you can see the one hanger, looks like you're missing the other one - they hook underneath to the levers connected to the rock shaft for lifting / lowering. The pronged end slips over the rod mounted to the tractor underneath, (it's probably got wear to it where it rides) you'll see it - pretty self-explanatory.

I also did not see a pto belt. Check either the FAQs, or the parts lookup for size, then go shopping at CC Specialties at the top of the page.

Kinda what I thought. Would this be the missing piece? If not, I can fab that pretty easy.

The 44” and 50” decks are rounded stamped decks. The 38”, 42” and 48” decks are square-ish folded decks.
