deck height adjustment

Recommended Posts

I have a rear engine Simplicity 3105 that I just picked up. When I try to raise the mower deck height, the entire deck pivots up, lifting the rear wheels right off of the ground. It is also very heavy to lift. The linkage all seems to be right according to the book, and the pivot points are all free. Any idea what is causing this? It is a 30 inch single blade deck. Thanks Steve

For all the guys who have read this post, I found the problem. Someone had replaced the shoulder bolt that attaches the deck wheel to the deck with a regular bolt so it couldn't slip as it should. Deck now works fine. Hope to post pics of the cavalier and my '59 wonderboy 575 soon. Steve
