I just showed it to my buddy who is a landscaper. He said.."those are the wrong wheels on the back of the deck". They are not original and are too large. Therefore the deck cant lower as far as it should giving the illusion its out of whack. If someone knows the original wheel size on the deck i can verify his theory.

Throttle Junky: If you could get a picture similar to the second one I posted on 9/8. Also if you could get a close up of where the rod attaches to the deck that would be great. Thanks!

Will do tonight. I got mine operating smoothly last night. I scraped the slide plate clean and sprayed some pb blaster on it and it wasnt working. It wasnt enough. I hit it with a scothbrite disc with a die grinder so it was perfect. Put a film of grease on it and readsembled. Deck operates perfectly now. That slide plate needs to be that clean and greased or it binds.

I've got a 120 with 42 in deck. Mine was acting like that and here's what i did. The slide mechanism at the pulleys I totally took apart, cleaned and polished each piece with a wire wheel. Made sure all rust and corrosion on the aluminum deck was gone. Then I found a worn slot in the pivot bracket at the pulleys. I welded and repaired that. Then I lubed all the moving slides and pivots. It still doesn't go up and down as smooth as some other brands of mowers I have but it works pretty good. And yes there is a round rod at the back mount where the mower can pivot on and if I remember correct it has to slide there as well when lifting or lowering the mower. I lubed that up as well. I don't have pictures handy but if needed I could take a few pics and post them.

Thanks for the help. I cleaned the plate with a tiger wheel on a grinder and greased it. I also greased the rods. I reassembled it all and it seems to work just fine. We'll see if it continues to work properly. If it doesn't I'll take all the moving parts off and clean. Thank again for the help

I think you are good. That plate has stumped many. If its clean and greased you are good.
