Might be a dumb question on my part here, but how does a twin blade deck cut without missing a tiny strip if the blades are not overlapping.

Do they overlap and time them or stagger front to back and overlap on straight runs ?

stagger front to back, like PA318 described... no timing, not with a V-belt driving them...

They are overlapped, the offset of the spindles across the deck allows for the overlap. It does not matter how you align them on the spindle since as one other posted stated the belts will slip some anyways and change their orientation.
I didn't think it mattered but I wanted to be sure before I put them back on.
Thanks everyone for your responses.
