Be sure you are wearing a tight fitting hat, so you don't tear your hair out. Need a few details here. You say 38", so I'm assuming 3 blades. Is there 1 belt driving 1 spindle & another belt from there to drive the other spindle(s)?
While others may have different methods, this is the way I would proceed.
Remove the blades & start it up. Running smooth- suspect bad blades. Still vibrate- suspect spindle or belt.
If bad blade suspected- install 1 blade & try it again. If okay, remove it & try another blade. If bad- move blade to a different spindle & try again.
If still bad with blades off, remove secondary belt & try with main belt spinning only 1 spindle.
This is where your stethoscope or a short piece of water hose for listening comes into use. Just have to eliminate 1 component at a time, then go forward to next component or backtrack, depending on results.
O.T.- learned this method of isolating trouble in military, shooting trouble on buried phone cable, can find trouble in a 10 mile run by only digging about 15 small test holes to drop in listening device, good-go forward, bad-backtrack. Get within inches before actually having to open it up. But I ramble.
