I own a F925, with side discharge deck, and the adjustment is the front lift arm wheel spindles, by adding or removing spacers, to adjust the drop, The rear is then adjusted by the rear anti-scalp wheels, to match the front. See link below,

I saw the link but how do knoe how many spacers to add or remove to raise the height and what holes to use for the anti skid wheels.right know the two out side blades are scalping lawn.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
do you add spacers or take out to raise it

Use a tape and measure the deck height, then use spacers as needed to compensate. Get front lip set, then use the rear rods to match deck height on the front.
