    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 over the web cant find anything. I see other makes that have to be synced

    A syncronised blade system will have blades that overlap by 20% to 40%.
    The blades will also have a shear pin of some sort and the blade belt will be toothed like a cam shaft belt.

    If a blade just kisses then the spindle housing is broken or the deck is bent .
    On a JD with a pressed deck the latter is prime suspect.
    In use the blades miss by about 1/16" .
