How to Adjust and Level the Deck Height of a Riding Lawn Mower Video from Sears PartsDirect
If the blades on your tractor are in good condition or have been replaced,
deck leveling may be necessary in order to achieve a good quality of cut.
Complete the following step-by-step instructions from Sears PartsDirect to
adjust and level the deck height of your riding lawn mower. For more riding
lawn mower repair guides and support, go to:
(1:01) Step 1: Depress foot pedal fully and raise and hold the parking
(1:08) Step 2: Once the knob is locked, now you may release the foot pedal.
(1:14) Step 3: Place the mower engagement lever to the disengaged position.
(1:18) Step 4: Turn the ignition to the off or stop position. Remove the
ignition key and place it somewhere where it cannot be put back into the
ignition switch during this procedure.
(1:29) Step 5: Make sure the blades and all moving parts have completely
(1:33) Step 6: Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and place
the wire where it cannot come into contact with the spark plug in the
engine after completing the safety procedures.
(1:40) Step 7: After completing the safety procedures, prepare the tractor
for the mower deck adjustments. First make sure that the tractor is on a
level, paved, smooth surface.
(1:52) Step 8: Raise the attachment lift lever to the highest position.
(1:58) Step 9: Adjust tire pressure to the maximum pressure on each tire.
(2:12) Step 10: On both sides of the tractor, position the blades at the
side as shown so that the measurement can be made from the edge of the
blade to the pavement.
(2:25) Step 11: Subtract the two measurements to get the difference between
the left and the right sides.
(2:41) Step 12: Make the adjustment at the left side of the tractor in
front of the rear wheel on the lift link lock nut. Turn the adjusting lock
nut clockwise to raise the mower and counterclockwise to lower it.
(3:06) Step 13: Measure the blade tip at both sides again and adjust until
the difference between the blade tip heights are about 1/8”.
(3:23) Step 14: Rotate the blades so that the direction of the blades are
forward and backward.
(3:39) Step 15: Using the bottom edge of the blade closest to the deck as a
reference, measure the distance from the ground to the blade at the front
and rear blade tips.
(4:19) Step 16: To make the adjustment, use the wrench to loosen the jam
nut several turns.
(4:28) Step 17: Turn the adjustment nut counter clockwise to loosen or drop
the front of the mower or clockwise to tighten or raise the front of the
(4:37) Step 18: Measure the front and rear blade tips to make sure the
difference is within the acceptable range. Tighten the jam nut against the
adjustment nut without changing the position at the adjustment nut. Check
that all pulley guards and deflectors are in good condition and properly
secured in place on the tractor or the mower deck.
(5:00) Step 19: Replace the spark plug wire on the spark plug. Replace the
ignition key in the ignition switch so you can test the mower.

Small Engine Repair: Adjusting the Hydrostatic Transmission Control Arm on a Craftsman Tractor
**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or
maintenance work on Outdoor Power Equipment. Manuals can be found at the
This Craftsman GT5000 Garden Tractor has a hydrostatic transmission with
hand control. When the transmission is moved forward, and than put back
into neutral it continues to creep forward. Fixing the problem involves
adjusting the control arm by loosening a adjusting bolt which is located
underneath the right fender and connected to the control arm. To get access
to the adjustment bolt, remove the right rear tire. I was able to jack up
the rear of the tractor and start it, so I could test the tractor while the
rear of the tractor was off the ground. The adjustment requires very small
movements until the right position is found. You will know when it is
adjusted correctly when the tractor rear wheels do not turn with the
transmission is put in neutral from forward and reverse position.

Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden will be
aiming to keep off the grass when he heads to Silverstone for the final
round of this year's series on 13 October. But he took time out from his
preparations to have a bit of fun, lining up on the grid with three-time
champ and team-mate Matt Neal on a special mower created by their Team
The Mean Mower is a bit different to Gordon and Matt's Honda Yuasa Racing
Civics. It's based on a Honda HF2620 lawn tractor, but the regular 20bhp
614cc V-twin engine has made way for a 1,000cc V-Twin from a Honda
Firestorm motorbike. This delivers 110bhp, and gives a power-to-weight
ratio of 520bhp per tonne -- enabling the mower to do 0-60mph in under four
seconds and hit 130mph.
To cope with this huge pace, the regular mower chassis has been replaced
with a chromoly spaceframe. Suspension and wheels from an ATV help Boost the handling, plus there's a
body-hugging racing seat and Alcantara steering wheel with buttons for the
sequential gearbox. This drives the rear wheels via a chain to a rear axle
sourced from a go-kart. Yet this amazing machine can still cut grass.
The steel cutting bed is replaced by a lighter fibreglass version, and
isn't connected to the petrol engine. Instead, two electric motors spin a
3mm wire cable at 4,000rpm -- proper blades could be a bit dangerous at
100mph. The Mean Mower is similar in concept to a Yuasa Racing Civic, which
is taken off the production line in Swindon, Wilts, and heavily modified.
While the chassis and body are retained, the interior is stripped out and a
roll cage fitted. New front and rear sub-frames are installed, as are
racing-spec suspension and brakes. And while the 2.0-litre engine uses the
same block as the old Civic Type R, a turbocharger is added and most of the internals
are changed. Total output is around 330bhp, which allows the Yuasa Civic to
do up to 160mph.
But how would the BTCC racer compare with the Mean Mower on a lap of
Rockingham's National Circuit in Northants? The track is 1.7 miles long,
has a range of corners and plenty of grass that could do with a trim...
"The only way the mower could win round here is to literally cut corners,"
said Matt. "But if it doesn't, it has no chance. In fact, I reckon I could
give it a 40-second head start and still cross the finish line first."
Was Neal right to be so confident? The way the mower stumbled off the
starting line suggested so. Its tall first gear makes for lazy getaways --
be too aggressive and the engine will stall. But once moving, the Mean
Mower soon gets into its stride. In a straight line, it's quite impressive
-- but the narrow track makes it tricky through corners.
Still, after 40 seconds, the mower had completed over a third of a lap --
leaving the car with plenty of catching up to do. In fact, the Civic didn't
have the mower in its sights until it rounded the penultimate corner. This
was going to be close. As the BTCC racer entered the final hairpin, the
Mean Mower was exiting it and heading down the home straight -- just a few
hundred metres from victory.
But the distance to the finish line proved just enough for the Civic to
close the gap. In the end it pipped the mower at the post, by the narrowest
of margins. We checked the stopwatch: the BTCC car had taken one minute
18.2 seconds to do a standing-start lap. The mower completed it in one
minute 59 seconds -- a difference of 40.8 seconds. We know who won the
moral victory, though, as the Civic can't trim your grass! Little wonder
that these Honda stars are keen to be handed the Mean Mower to cut some
blades of glory in their gardens during the close season.
