Is the thickness of the wing less than the blade thickness? If so that is part of the cut problem.

3600 RPM on a 22" blade results in a blade speed of 20735.

Most pushers are 21" rated but not actually 21 or 22. They are say 20 and 3/4 or 7/8" for example. So slow down with the new buzz term of the day of blade tip speed. The grass police won't be by to arrest you.

Best way to cook your engine
All mine get cooked weekly. Still work like a new one. Matter of fact, this weekend, be doing some mo' cookin'.

Follow your engine and or mower manuals for max revs.

Yep, my antique B&S pusher is a 22" that the blade measures on the diagonal 22-5/8"
