Fabricated Deck

I have a Husqvarna GTH26V52LS with the dreaded fabricated deck. It always leaves a strip of uncut grass from the center blade. I have tried every blade on the market with the same result. I have talk to Husqvarna many times with no luck. They know that those decks have the issue but have no solution to the irritating problem. Does anybody have a solution for fixing the poor cut qualities of these decks? So tired of cutting my grass twice.

    Would it be possible to get a large washer and try shimming the blade lower on the spindle? If it is missing the grass would assume the blade is too high. Larger washer and maybe longer bolts only a few bucks.

    Not possible due to 5 point star on the spindle shaft. The only way to lower the blade would to shim the complete spindle assembly.
     
    But I have a question about the leaving is the complete width of the blade, offset to one side, or otherwise?
