update on blades..thanks
Thanks riding-green..I just got this mower out of storage recently and looked at tape without my glasses on (should know better) but I re-measured and the blades are correct at 16" each. The deck outside to outside is accually just over 33",but cutting pattern is more like 32". I think this is a 32" mower. So should I lower the back then to get more level with bit of pitch? the front of deck is maybe 1" above grass- back is at least 2 1/4" above grass..close to 2.5" If I drop to lower mounting holes that would put me maybe 1 1/4 " above grass in back and front is at around 1" above now.
