I took the mower deck apart to clean it, check bearings and the belt.
They definitely need to be replaced, but will likely be a winter project.
I don't know the exact size, but it has three blades.

1.) Do you have a favorite place to buy parts?
I'll be needing replacing most of the old parts, one step at a time.
Next step will be upgrade the fuller to a vertical one, has anyone done this?

2.) Based on the picture, did I put it together correctly?
I have a gut feeling that I put the bottom arms with the spring loaded pins, on the inside of the L shape, but they should go on the outside?

You have the old style 38" deck, and yes, the arms go on the outside, they hookup towards the front of the tractor, not the rear. And the lift strap with the adjustable J bolt goes on the right side, not the left. And what do you mean be upgrading the fuller to a vertical one?

Leonard gave you great advice about the lift arms, they should be bolted to the outside of the L shaped attachment brackets and they definitely are to be swung forward and get attached to the brackets under the foot boards with the large headed link pins, or at least this is the way they're attached to round fendered 110's like my 1966. I recently completed a complete restoration on my 1966 model 38 mower deck and a bit later on I'll post the project from start to finish. I replaced all bearings, both the blade spindle bearings and the main drive pulley bearing. I got all of my bearings from sellers on eBay but these along with some of the other parts such as drive belts are still available from John Deere dealers. You can also check with HAPCO , they sell a few parts for mower decks like gauge wheels, gauge wheel bolts, the mower deck caution decals, and the mower deck belt routing decal that's found under the deck belt cover if it's needed. There should be reprints of the mower deck operator's manual that includes the parts list, available from sellers on eBay also.

Ah, thank you! It has been a while since I mowed with it, I've just been using the tiller and snow blower for the last few years.
For a vertical muffler, I was thinking of replacing this old and LOUD muffler, with a universal one that would come out, then 90° up, like a traditional large tractor muffler.
The only replacement ones that i've found are all used and seem to be expensive. I think it might look pretty cool with a different one on it. Not sure, I don't really like doing too many modifications to things...

I think Hapco has or had stack kits.

Hapco does have exhaust stack extensions like Leonard correctly mentioned. You can check these over if you go on their website and under Categories click on Mufflers and Exhaust Extensions. These seem quite pricey though. If you can weld or have a friend who can help, it shouldn't be real difficult to weld on elbow fittings or fabricate what you'll need. As you're figuring out your stack configuration be sure to also plan on making some type of extra support brackets to reinforce the exhaust stack extension in addition to just the connection at the cylinder exhaust port. I've heard of cases where the exhaust port section of cylinders have completely broken away from the cylinder due to the extra weight of the exhaust extension or because the pipe was snagged on bushes or branches while mowing for example. Just a word to the wise on that because an exhaust extension will be otherwise more unstable and more prone to breakage. Exhaust extensions do look great however and when done well there should be no problems.
