    I am guessing this is a newbie mistake but I have an Exmark Phazer. I go to reinstall my blades and when I go to tighten them down it will tighten tight and the other side is also moving. I put a block in and all and they will just not sinch down. What do I need to do. I change them every couple days and never have had this problem. Thanks!

    I am not 100% sure, but I think you are going to have to hold the bolt on the topside.

    Use an Impact but, if you dont have one hold the top side. I am sure you know this but Always make sure the spak plug is out.

    Especially if it direct drive...not too much to worry about if belt with clutch...but you can never be too safe.

    Start the mower and engage the blades. Hold blade with bolt through it to the spindle with the spindle spinning. while still spinning use wrench to tighten the bolts.
