I had to replace the ball and roller bearings on one of the spindles for my mower and I want to make the deck quieter when I am mowing. So I have noticed that all three blades have little shrouds that just float between the blade and are centered over the shaft of the spindle. The shrouds make a lot of noise as they just bounce around when the deck is running...am I missing a piece in here that keeps it snug against the blade? I am tempted to remove it, at the expense of exposing the roller bearings to grass clippings and moisture.

Time to fire up the old plasma table and cut some new ones I guess. It just seemed odd that they would have worn out...but it does make sense as it'd be sandwiched in place from the blade. Thanks for the heads up guys!
