murray deck problems

ok I own a old agway rideing mower which is really a murray 46254X15A 18 hp 46 inch cut mower, first its a 3 blade deck not sure what I have done but now the center blade seems to cut higher than the other 2. As in when I mow I leave a strip of grass 1/2 in higher in the middle. anythoughts on how to fix this ? also on a unrelated note the front tire on the left side seems to wobble looks like the bushing I ordered 2 Front Wheel Bushing Murray 93064 these should just insert into the rim right ?

nope no play in the blades I checked that when I lubed them as far as lvling the deck as far as I can tell there are rods with screw ends on either side of the deck could these be off and the center there for higher ?

BTW the center does still cut

If the front of the deck is higher than the back, it will cut higher on the center blade. You can check the blades too and make sure the ends of each blade meet up even with the end of the adjacent blade. If not, you have other problems.
