Mounting dual blades

I am putting on new blades for my 42" cut riding mower. I did not note their position upon removal. When placing the new blades on should they be parallel to each other or doesnt matter.

For ex: (assuming the Is and -- are the blades and looking at the bottom of the deck):

Ex #1: II

or

EX#2: I --

Thanks in Advance,
Charles

Hello tsi91at!

It doesn't matter on modern mowers. Put 'em wherever you want, they don't stay in the same relation to each other anyway. If you have a very old machine with a timing belt on the deck, or gear driven blades, then they should be perpendicular to each other.

It is a Troy-bilt so I would say it is modern.

I placed them on and torqued to spec. I also used a little loc-tite on the threads since I fear blades flinging off. One of the blades was actually so loose it was out of the star when I bought it....Yikes.

My concern was the fact they spin together and the rotation being off and messing up something.....like my feet Better to ask first.

You guys once again are a big help... Thanks,
Charles

I would emagine that its fine aftor you added the locktight. However just make sure that the blades are balenced. If they are not, then it could be because the blade is bent or the pully is bent. I think you should inspect that area one more time and let us know what you find.

They spin fine now. I took the mower apart and checked everything out.

I just tightened some belts on it (drive belt) and cleaned it up.

After the oil, filter, spark plug, new bladesetc.. change I should be ready for the Spring.

Thanks again for the help!
