There were several options for blades, back then, ours had a
blade on each end of the carriage, and a bar, that connected the
2 blades, under the arched center carriage. It has 2 carriage
bolts, big suckers, 3/4", I think, with a cotter pin above the
castle nut. There is also a bushing, that goes into the 1-1/2"
hole in the blades. We always took the snap coupler version of
this mower, and backed it over a hill, and removed the blades to
sharpen. Not being able to see what's under your machine, it
might be easier to use a hand held 4-1/2" hand grinder, to
sharpen them on the machine. You can get blades, but the AC
uses a blade with like 4 or 4-1/2" offset.
