Deck Leveling- margin of error?
I just did some work to level my 46" mower deck that I bought for my Craftsman YT3000. I've got the the side to side within about 1/16"-1/8" of each other. And I've got the front about 1/4"- 3/8" lower than the back. It seems to vary a little depending on exactly where you measure. I did measure the blades both ways (measured one end, spun it 180į and measured the other). The tractor was on level, flat ground and the tire pressures were set to 10 PSI rear, 14 PSI front.
My one front tire has a slow leak, but I don't think it is enough to throw off the measurement. I checked the pressure right before I attempted any leveling. Once I address that tire I will recheck the deck, but again I don't think this is the issue.
Any further adjustment doesn't seem to get it any closer, so my question is, is there an acceptable margin of error when leveling a deck?
