    Why use longer bolts with doubles ???? You just need to remove a spacer so the cutting height is correct anyway.... If you use a longer bolt and change notheing else the cutting height will be about a 1/4" lower than it should be.........................

    On some mowers, a 1/4" longer bolt was needed. Not all by any means. Never ran doubles, and have never needed to.

    A search will answer any of your longer bolt questions.

    German torque specifications- goodentight.
    Redneck torque specifications- tighten her til she strips, then back off a quarter turn.
