Under each blade is one single nut holding each blade on. It is not left-hand thread and there is nothing special about it.
Standard thread - Standard hardware - Standard tools. (If memory serves, you need a 15/16" socket to remove these.)
There is no need to index or time the blades. They cannot hit together unless something is bent or damaged on your mower deck.
Hope this helps,

What the problem is (im not sure if they are called this) but the deck pulley brakes are worn out.
Basically if you look under the rider frame side (on top of the deck). There are on each side for each spindle pulley a flat metal tab. On the underside of that is just like a brake on your car. So when you raise the deck the pulley brakes hit the top of the pulleys and stop them from spinning. Which cause the blades to stop spinnign. There are probably turning at 10% of there normal speed. If that sound like what its doing check the brakes.
They are a replaceable part. Sorry I just cant remember exactly what they are called. Over the years they just wear out like a set of brake pads on your car. And the mower cuts and just work fine. Thats where I would start. When they wear out, the friction material is gone. Best Reguards, Premium FixYa Support

SOURCE: I have a JD 160
Most likely cause is the seat safety switch is not functioning properly, ie. when sitting in it to allow blades to engage, if failed it will act like there is no one on the mower and the blades get engaged it will kill the engine, like having the ignition shut off.
I hope this is helpful to you.

if the key will not turn its a bad switch even if a safety switch was bad the key would turn
