Left side deck adjustment gear fell off
1. Removed the temporary fix.
2. Lowered deck onto wooden shims on the left side set to the same height as the right side.
3. Removed the pin in the linkage to make it easier to line up deck and parts.
4. Installed parts, tightened into place, replace linkage pin.
5. Checked deck height at lowest, idle and highest levels to ensure it was correct.
6. Cleaned up tools and tested mower.

This was easily done in the driveway with basic tools. I would recommend checking all nuts and bolts when you do your spring maintenance and oil changes throughout the year.

The mower deck would not adjust to an even level. The part that levels the deck had fallen off and could not be found.
1. I dropped the mower deck from the tractor.
2. Installed the new deck adjustment gear.
3. Reattached the deck to the tractor and cut the grass evenly.
It took about 1 hour. It was a snap with the new correct parts. The parts came within 4 days. Thanks ereplacementparts for your support and superior service.
