Hello another question on 42 inch blade, this time on mounting sub frame assembly. 1. Does the back of the frame #15 (slots) go on the inside or outside of tractor frame next to the foot rest? If goes on inside, I am assuming needs to go inside pass the mower deck lift. 2. The mounting rod #14, Is it used in place of bolting the sub-frame that most people use?

I hope the below makes sense

1. On mounting the sub-frame, if it goes on outside of the tractor frame, the back of sub-frame needs to be spread almost 12 inches, and the one got at auction is about 9 1/2 and when I put it on it hits the mower lift lever so will need to squeeze it in more if goes on inside. Most of the pictures I have seen on the internet and YouTube videos it looks like the sub-frame is on the outside of tractor frame in about 2 out of 3 pictures. Also, if the sub-frame goes on the outside, the right side there is not much room between the foot rest and frame to put the sub-frame #15 and lift bracket #21

It goes outside on a 70, from the picture of the parts breakdown. A full picture of what you have gotten from the auction would help.
