JD 37A snow thrower not lifting properly
I recently purchased a John Deere 112 with a 37A snowthrower. I just attached the snowthrower for the first time. At first I wasn't able to attach the lift link because it wouldn't reach between the blower and the tractor. I loosened that long shaft that runs from the lift link to the rear of the tractor and was able to attach the lift link. However, now when the snowthrower is in the lower position the left side of the tractor is about 4.5 inches of the ground and the right side (opposit lift link) is about 2.5 inches of the ground. Then when I raise the hydraulics the whole blower only raises about 3/4 inch. The manual suggests that in raised position it should be 5 inches off the ground. So am I not getting the range of motion I should be getting? If so, how do I fix that? Also, is there anything I can do about the snowthrower being 2 inches lower on the right side than the left side?

Something is wrong. Either a part is missing or one was not installed correctly. Being it is Sunday and the dealer is closed, I would start at the beginning and recheck my work. There has to be a reason why the lift link didn't reach.
