I have a 2007 x 540 and want to level the mowing deck,I cant find my owners manual and have watched a couple videos but they show a tool that goes through a small hole where the hight adjustment rotator is.my 540 doesnt have these holes.I am confused.Moved a couple years ago and never found the manual after that.I was told by someone that there are 2 bolts on the deck and the 2 on the front of the tractor.Can anyone help.

Thanks. Jeff

JD is really strict about posting any manuals on line. You may want to purchase a new manual from their online technical publications section. I would approach a local dealer and see if they can help you out. You may also get a response here from someone who has done the procedure before. I don't have any info on these newer mowers.

I would suggest eBay as another option for the manual.  I don't know the new stuff either.
