i switched from a 42M deck to a New old stock 48c mulching deck. what adjustments to what part need to happen so the blades do not rotate when the PTO is off. deck cuts well when PTO is on and very quiet. thank you !

Assuming you have the correct belt what needs to be done is adjust or replace the engagement rod ( spring rod ). It's adjustable at the at the tractor side of the rod. You need to shorten it, screw it in. The problem you might encounter is rod length. They used different sized spring rods for different sized mower decks.

thanks for the reply. I moved the PIN (left PIN in pic) in around an inch on the bolt (clockwise) and now when PTO is off the blades are still, and engaging the PTO the blades spin up. called the dealer and there are possibly 4 different rods to order and had no clue which one to order. I asked about the tech hotline to check and they didn't offer.
