OOPS! I hate to tell you but you most likely put new blades on that were too short. Check your manual and get the proper length blades. If you still have the old ones, check them against the new ones and you will see that they are shorter resulting in the uncut grass in the center.

That model number des not show up as a good number on the http://www.searspartsdirect.com site. Are you sure you have the belts on correctly? If it has 2 belts on the deck & 1 is not installed correctly they work against each other. Safely make sure that each blade will turn by hand. did you take the blades off? If they are too long by just a fraction, they will hit ach other, but that usually makes quiet a noise. Get your book out & systematically go over everything you touched or changed. It sounds like something really simple you have overlooked. you can go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com & enter a good model number & view all of the parts diagrams. Sometimes they are a big help, & at other times they just confuse you more:). Let me know what you find!!

Judging by the diagram the spring mounts under the armbrake, the Bolt (#52) goes through the circular spring. One end of the spring goes into one of the holes near the bolt on the armbrake and the other ( after providing tension by turning the spring ) must attach to a non moving part on the deck to be able to provide the required tension Look for a small turned up piece of metal with a notch in it on the housing.
Hope this helps
