Hanging Mower Deck on Lawn Tractor

Greetings: Thanks to those who were so helpful coaching me through a belt change on my Craftsman model 917.255561 Lawn Tractor.

New Problem: When I put my mower deck back onto this tractor, the left mandrel pulley now rubs against the silver "hook", more properly called a lift link, which creates a terrible noise, of course. I can't figure out what adjustment needs to be made to make this thing hang properly. Help! and thanks!

There is no adjustment that would compensate for that. Either you have something connected or assembled wrong, or the mandrel is broken and allowing the shaft to tilt over toward the hanger.
