make sure tyre pressures are 15 psi fr and 10 psi rear
make sure the the distance from floor to btm edge of r/h side of deck is the same as the l/h side adjust one or other until you have same measurement use tape measure ( this is side to side level )
then make sure you have rear edge of deck at the mid point about 5 mm higher than the front edge ( this is the rake ), adjust using the front draft arms or front lift link
