Move machine to flat/level surface,with deck raised put a 2x4 between rear of deck and ground.Make sure that the 2x4 goes all the way under deck from one side too the other.Once that is done lower deck all the way and make sure lift lever is all the way forward.Then on the rear top side of deck loosen bolt that holds arm to deck bracket,pull bracket as far down as you can then retighten bolt.This is also the point where you can level deck side to side.

How to level the mowing deck on 2002 John Deere (Scotts) 42 " mower. Mower deck drags on right side. Mower height adjuster doesnt work seems jammed.


Have a look underneath while someone operates the height adjustment. There's probably a link arm come off which does deck height. Go to google images for this machine, type height adjustment and look at the pictures if you don't have a handbook. Google JD handbooks and see if you can find a free download.

John Deere Lt 166 ride on mower


jd lt 166 has 5 different decks
3 of which have the same belt routing
1st the belt needs to be adjusted correctly to stop it from "slacking off"
then on most decks the belt is routed in between the 2 small idler pulleys and then to the engine pulley
so let me know the deck i.e. 36", 42 ", 46", 48"
different belt sizes also
