    JD z335e Blades hit

    I bent one of the 2 blades and replaced both of them. When I manually spin blades they touch at 3 and 9 o’clock.Is there a adjustment to sync them they don’t hit? I have looked on YouTube and all overe web cant find anything. I see other makes that have to be synked.

    Re: JD z335e Blades hit

    One of two possible problems that I can think of: wrong sized blades or bent/shifted spindles. These blades should spin freely and never make contact if the spindles are properly centered in the deck openings and they are perfectly vertical; that is so longs as you have the proper sized blades. Whatever it is that bent your blade likely shifted or moved something which has now created this new problem. I would suggest completely removing the deck, cleaning the area around the spindles and checking to make sure that you do not have any damage to the spindles, shafts or holes where the spindles mount. I am not sure of the strength of the deck upper, but a substantial enough of a hit could have bent the top causing the spindle to no longer sit properly.

    The new blades are The same JD part#. I Looked Underneath when changeing blades and didn’t notice any clean metal on the bottom which would indicate movement so I guess i’ll Look on top. Thanks
