    Hi, I have about a 10 year old yardman 20 hp 46" deck. One side of the deck os lower than the other and I cannot figure out how to adjust it. Also, now I cant shift into high. It has high and low and 7 speeds. Can anyone help.
    Thanks, Tony

    As I recall there is a threaded adjustment on the left side, kind of high up in the frame, hard to get to. You remove the clip and turn the bent rod until the deck is level, then re-clip it.

    Couldn't get 1st "gear" on mine, but just lived with it, never made an attempt to adjust it. If you are mowing in 6th, that thing has to be giving you stump knocker's neck because that tractor is a rough ride. Hard as that tractor is to work on, you probably want to live with 1st thru 6th, and forget 7th.
