Scag Cub52" Deck Leveling Question

Ok recently purchase Cub with 520 hrs... runs/works great although read some threads about pitching the deck for better striping.. so i pitched the deck about 3/8 and this works great for striping although the center blade looks like its cutting lower than the others.... can anyone recommend anything to correct this problem? Is there any articles on adjusting/leveling scag decks for optimum cutting? Maybe a bent blade? Cant seem to figure this one out

Thanks in advance for your replies

This is due to the fact that the center blade is placed more up up front then the rest of the blades.. it's closer to the nose of the deck.. So when you pitch the deck.. it becomes closer to the ground than the rest of the blades.
