Are you referring to the "tension rod" on the mower deck? I think the rod you are talking about is number 114 on the diagram. Take a look at this diagram.

I have john deer sabre 18 horse i have a snow blade but cant get on right



Hello,

My name is Dane and I'll try to help you with your problem. I have given you the basic instructions here for mounting most john deere snow blades.


Here is a link to the parts diagram for the blade too.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Sabre-john-deere-Parts/Riding-mower-tractor-Parts/Model-15538G/1828/1509200/10060752/00034


You need to remove the mower deck from the machine, and you may have to remove the front bumper as well.

First, install the mounting brackets on the tractor. Align the holes in each mounting bracket with the holes in the tractor frame. Install using the kit that comes with the mounting bracket. Don't tighten this yet.


Next you should install the pivot support. Insert the pins on the right and left hitch plates into the notches on the mounting brackets. Install the pins and tighten the screws on those mounting brackets now.


Next you should Install the blade. Align the holes in the pivot support with the second holes from the end of the push channel assembly. Insert the channel pin and washer and secure with the spring locking pin.


Install the lift handle. Slide the lift handle rod into the end hole in the push channel assembly. Insert the lift link pin in the pivot support bracket into the lift handle rod. Add the washers and locking pin.


Now, Iistall the blade pivot rod. Either end of the blade pivot rod goes through the blade pivot shaft. The other end goes through the lift handle tube. Secure both ends with locking pins.


Lubricate the lift handle rods and pivot points.


Install the rear tire chains and wheel weights.


I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thanks! Dane

Mowing deck pullies, mounting and spring application.


Download the product manual from the Sears website. Murray manufactured these tractors so you can download the manual from the Murray website also. Procedure for replacing the mower deck belt is quite simple. No need to remove the deck. Spring location also on diagrams. Mower deck parts diagram breaks down the whole assembly. Easier way to remove pulleys is using an impact wrench, otherwise hold the blade while removig the nut that holds the pulley in place. Use a heavy glove to hold the blade for safety!

Dual blade mower leaves uncut strips between blades.


Had same uneven mowing problem with new Toro Z4200 XTR mower. Problem was one side of the U-shaped rear deck hanger rod had popped out of its chassis mount (did hit something with mowing deck). Removed hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Put end of U-shaped rear deck hanger rod back in the chassis mount and remounted hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Z4200 now cuts lawn evenly again.
