Looked up detailed isometric diagram w/ parts denoted on John Deere website. FixYa website was a litele misleading. I did not realize that accessing a question posted "for free" would cost me something to get the answer. It's kind of like askin a neighbor as a neighbor to give you a hand and then he sends a bill.
Thanks but no thanks

My John Deere X320 gets the mower deck lift stuck in the up position when I try to reinstall the deck. The solution is to make sure the cutting height is set to 1" (lowest) and then raise the deck and lock it in this position. This will free the lifting mechanism and drop it to the lowest postion.

My John Deere D110 is cutting the grass to short on the highest deck level. How can I fix it.

level the deck off as a tilted deck will cut lower on the low side

I have a probably 20 year old John Deere 130 lawn mower the mow deck is stuck in the highest setting and will not lower, how do lower it, Thanks

a 130 that's 20 years old , does this one have a black deck or a yellow deck , the black deck ones used a hydraulic cylinder (commercial model) and the yellow deck models used a grab bar just infront of the seat , you need to squeeze the handles together to get catch to release , then it should just fall down to it's lowest setting , that is if it's not rusted in place , a few squirts of soaking oil will do wonders on this

My 1979 111 john deere lawn tractor deck blades shut off

If it has a clutch, that would be the problem. An electric clutch will kick on and off when it is hot if it is bad.
