How to level the cut hight of a L130 Jphn Deere Lawn mower

Inflate all tires to the proper air pressure using a high quality gauge such as a digital, not the $3.00 ones but a good quality from say Napa. Make sure the tires are within the same wear of tread and inflated to + - 1/2 PSI of the proper pressure. Find a nice clean and flat surface to park and using a "Tee" square check the left and right rear "corners" of the deck. If you do not own a "Tee" square I've used large wood wedges that taper from 0" to 3" (such as a wedge made from a 2X4), slide the wedge until the tapered part just touches the rear corners of the deck and mark it with a pencil, do the same on the other side and then adjust the rear hangers until the deck is level within 1/8" or less side to side. Then adjust the front hanger to set the front of the deck 1/8" lower than the rear and you are there. From then on simply keep the tires inflated using the example above and your deck should go right back to level again.
If the out of level cut still persists check to ensure the blade tips are even with each other, one blade higher than the other could be a bend blade or a distorted deck and possibly a bad spindle bearing.

Overheating JD Model 170

Before you put it out to pasture you could try rebuilding the carburator.Its 20 years old and I bet its got dirt inside it.
The only other thing I would suggest is, when it stalls and back fires, stop and pull out the spark plug and watch the spark while you turn it over to be sure it has a good strong consistant spark.The coil might be tired.
These are my only suggestions.
I hope this helps!

Left front tire riding on outside edge.

Yes, adjust it. On lawn and garden equipment the set the tires as straight as possible. Because of there low speed the equipment it's not a huge deal. So just adjust it as best you can without any worrying.
