    L120 deck leveling

    I just bought a used L120 thatís a bit of a mutt, so Iím not sure the deck is the correct one for this model. None of the leveling instructions I can find match what Iím seeing. Does anyone recognize this deck?

    Any help would be much appreciated! I really got stuck with a bad mower and am trying to make the best of it

    Is it as simple as loosening that bolt and sliding the rear of the deck up and down?

    That looks like the correct 48Ē 3 blade deck for your machine ( same as on my L130)

    Yes, the adjustment for the rear is as simple as adjusting the sliding plates with the nut and bolts you pictured to even the deck from side to side and make it ďreadĒ correctly per the lever that raised and lowers it thatís graduated in .5 increments from 1 to 4.

    The front drag link can be adjusted as well to provide the front of the deck just a little lower(1/4Ē or less) than the rear for proper cutting. Your manual contains this info and is available online for free. If I can find it easily Iíll link it here for you.

    and for after S/N 150 001 OMGX22058_F5

    Check for a loose wire or connection to the seat switch or just replace the switch, itís cheap enough.

    Oil leaks I canít help with, good luck on the rest though. Iíd recommend at least a pull, drain and refill of the K46 transaxle to help maintain it. Iíd be nice to pull it, split it, replace the internal filters and reassemble and refill.

    The switch is there he just pulled it out and duct taped the button down. I need a good picture of how to put it back in place.
