    John Deere 1026R Rock Shaft

    The rock shaft lever is not riding on the mower deck height adjustment cam on my 1026 R. Any help would be appreciated .

    Thumbs up Welcome to GTT!

    Glad to have you here.


    I have a few questions so I can help narrow down your issue.

    1. Is the mower installed?

    2. What lift do you have, mechanical (raised and lowered by the 3PH lever on the fender), or independent (hydraulic cylinder activated by the loader joystick)?

    3. What other issues have you noticed?

    4. Was it working before or is this a new problem?

    Here's a great thread to help explain the differences and shows how to correctly setup and adjust your mower.

    I had that happen before. MMM height adjustment wasn't working it just stayed at one height. Got off tractor to look and the rock shaft lever was riding between the frame and the height adjustment cam. Dealer fixed it but I don't know how they did it.

    Here's the breakdown. I'm not sure where the binding would be. You may need a helper wiggle the deck around, (maybe use a jack?) to find where the linkage is binding.
