My new lawn mower has a height adjustment on each of its four wheels. My old one only had one lever to make adjustments. There are five holes on each of the rear wheels but there are eight holes on the front two. I'm puzzled! How do I line up the mower height/ Why is there different number of adjustment holes fron & back?

If this is a push mower, The cut level is just about always set by adjusting the height of the wheels. There are usually little spring loaded levers that let you move the wheels up or dow.
SAFETY FIRST> NEVER try to adjust these with the engine running.
Move the 4 wheel adjustment levers to the number 4 position which is all the way forward (towards you if facing the front of the mower) and that is the highest setting which is about 4" cut height. Each number for the lever position represents the inches in cut. In between numbers is 1/2" so in between 2 and 3 would be 2 1/2" cut as an example.
1 Locate the height adjustment lever on the inside of the left rear wheel. 2 Kneel next to the mower and push the left height adjustment lever toward the center of the mower. This will unlock the lever from the locking pin on which the height is currently set. Read more: How do I Adjust the Height on a Great States Reel Mower?

3Rotate the lever toward the front of the mower to lower the height of cut, or toward the rear of the mower to raise the height of cut.
4 Release the lever over the locking pin closest to the desired height of cut.
5 Repeat these steps with the adjustment lever on the right-side rear wheel. Be sure to set the right wheel lever to the same position as the left-side wheel's lever for an even cut.
Usually all mowers have height adjustments of some kind. Look around your front and rear wheels, if you have a number of holes drilled into the deck ,these are your adjustment holes.You would unbolt the wheels and put them at the height you would like. If as you say there is no adjustment, I would say buy new wheels that are an inch or more bigger than your present wheels and install them in place of your old wheels. If you go to any local dealer they will be able to help you with your problem.
There is no height lever on this simple mower. To change the height of cut, the wheels themselves must be moved up or down. First, unplug the mower. Turn it over on its side. You'll see that the wheels attach to the frame with simple bolts, and that there are two open holes at each wheel (three holes at different heights altogether, but one of the holes is occupied by the current mounting height of the wheels). Undo each bolt for all four wheels and move them to a new position. Note that the wheel-mounting holes are drilled 5/8-inch apart from each other. If you want to add another hole there is room on the sheet metal to make a new hole for each wheel, and this would put the mower body and blade very high off the ground, if used. You can make that new hole for each wheel with your electric drill. But I think your mower is probably set to the lowest of the three holes, so see first if moving the wheels 5/8-inch higher is better for your lawn, and, if not, then use the 1 1/4-inch higher set of holes on all four wheels. Make sure to move each wheel to the same height hole! Good luck, be safe. --Joe, Tucson, AZ
