How do you adjust the metal bar to touch the blades? Do you adjust the screw up or down?

Slowly screwing down pushes the back end of the blade, rotating the front end up toward the reel. It should be close enough to cut a piece of newspaper but not so close that it interferes with the rotation of the reel.

I have a Silent Yard Man model 122-8171. Do you know if it is possible to get replacement parts? What could be similar?

Hi Hester, I have an Craftsman Silent yard man model 123 8172 & I would like to know:
1.How to sharpen the blades?

2. How do I get the blades to cut without putting so much pressure on the mower?

3. Are the wheels replaceable? If so, where can I get the wheels?

4. Where can I get the shocks for it also?
(Not sure but I beleive its called shocks. The parts that gives the tension.)
