Roy, I would be interested in how to solve this problem. I tightened the yolks up on the mule drive, but I can barley get them hooked now. This did make it better, but it is still low.
My deck is tweeked though. The pulley seems to lean forward a hair and I caught the sidewalk with a wheel and bent that up. I am not looking to get it perfect, just decent.
I would also be interested in anything that would help solve this type of problem.

thanks for the suggestions guys ill do some checking,my center pulley also tilts forward,my deck seems to be very solid when i had it off cleaned it thourougly,repainted,i have friend who has alot of experience with these mowers said something about shim kit for these ill have to check and see if that is the problem with mine as well,thanks again for the tips!
