I'm working on redoing the 42" deck for my Ford/Jake LGT. The center pulley that gets power from drive belt and shares with the other two is shot. Here's the question; If I swap out the pulleys from the larger 50" deck the pulleys are obviously different due to blade speed. But will it effect it enough to not cut decent? The original pulley is 4-3/4" outside and the other is 5-1/2". If i run it at full throttle ( something i rarely do) will it cut good enough to cut the grass? I'm not looking for a show lawn.
And should I change all three pulleys so they spin equal?
