The adjustment knob for the deck of my 2380 is almost impossible to turn to the "Top" position. I dropped the deck and got under the BX and cleaned and lubed the mechanism. It helped for a very short time (two mowing sessions) and is now back to being stuck.

Anybody have a suggestion or hint or hack? This whole thing looks pretty poorly designed in my opinion - that stepped rotating pin assembly does not seem like it is meant to be used more than for the initial height setting.

Any advice is much appreciated.
