    I just bougth a 2000 Toro 455-d with 2700 hres and in prety good shape and everything was working fine. Last week I removed the deck to work on it (cylinders). Yesterday, I tried to put the deck on the mower and the main cylinders on the mower (those who elevate or drop the cutting unit) were not working...is somebody knows why? They were working very good before I removed th cutting unit.

    Thank you,
    Very appreciate

    The service manual say that the counter balance pressure could be too high and its why the arms would not drop...what do you think?

    That's a good chance since the weight of the deck/cutting unit is what lowers them, I don't know of them having downward pressure. Just put the lift control in the float position then push the arms down to re-attach the deck.
