42" mower deck


skinner

Recommended Posts

Hi All, Question, I cleaned and painted the underside of my 42" deck and when I finished I layed a straight edge across the arbors. The left outboard blade arbor sits about 3/16" higher than the center and right outboard arbor. Is this correct? Dosn't seem right to me.This is a 7014 Simplicty, Ive owned this tractor for 25years, wasn't happy with the cut last year. Thanks Nick

Sounds as though the spindle may be bent.Turn the arbor and see if you come up with the same measurement.

I had one with a bent flange on the spindle housing. I straightened as best I could, but ended up putting shims under the flange to get it into alignment. The shaft was not bent. I think someone caught the shaft on something when the mover was not running and bent the flange.
