Well well well.

I went into the other mower shop. And they had super high lifts. Pretty much the same blades, but the flicker would have been more like 80degrees.

Nearly dead vertical.

yeah, I thought it was a crack or something too.

It is a wear mark, funny place to be. Normally they don't wear like that.

That's pretty much a standard lift blade, whether hi or lo or what but one thing they're not is mulching blades.
And no, that's not a crack on the fin, more like a crease of some sort, probably has one on the other side, too.
Either way they have very little wear on them, so I'd sharpen them up and run them.

It' s actually an abrasive worn area by the looks.

Anyway I sharpened them up nice and good. And after seeing the proper high lift blades I decided to bash the flickers up some more on these. Will see how they go.

Just gotta see how my tappet / valve clearance adjustment went now.
