Lift rockshaft arms, making sure rockshaft pins are engaged into backhoe hooks. Continue to lift rockshaft while watching that lower pin (D) on backhoe weldment is drawn into lower hook in tractor mounting plate (E).
Lift rockshaft arm all the way up so that bottom pin (D) is fully drawn up into lower hook (E), and stop (F) is against edge (G).
Install L-pins (C) through RSA plates and backhoe weldment. If backhoe and RSA plates do not line up correctly, and L-pins do not slide in and out easily, lower backhoe to ground and adjust movable latch plates (H) to obtain good alignment.
In some cases the rockshaft may not lift the backhoe high enough to install the L-pins. If this occurs, the linkage which connects the rockshaft to the rockshaft control valve needs to be adjusted. See your John Deere dealer for rockshaft position adjustment.
Secure L-pins with hitch pins.
STOP engine. Pull rockshaft position control lever forward to lower rockshaft and transfer weight of backhoe from rockshaft arms to L-pins.
Engage park brake.
Remove nut and washer (I) from tie down plate (J) from both sides of backhoe.
Cut strapping and drop pallet off of backhoe.
