    Maybe this is a stupid question, but here goes, on the Turf Tiger, on the deck leveling rods it just has the front nut locked as a jam nut and the second one is backed way off, is this right or should they both be locked up against the swivel. I just got done looking through some of their literature and it looks the same way in the pictures so maybe that is right. I just thought some of you that have them could tell me if that is how yours is.

    I think it's suppose to be that way. All the ones at the dealer are like that.

    the back nut is used to turn the rod.

    the retainer is threaded inside and the last nut is the locknut against the retainer.

    it looks odd but its correct

    I was looking at mine today thinking about adjusting the deck so the height matched the numbers.....So shouldn't that locking nut be tightened up against the those swivels? Maybe there would be no way that that the rod would turn regardless.
