murray ridding mower brake problem

I have a murray wide body 40 inch cut with a b&s 12.5 hp.the model number is on a sticker below the seat and cant be read.I have one pedal on the front left foot side....there was a sticker that said brake/clutch...i never used the pedal to shift gears,i was told its a shift on the go..so only used the pedal to stop....now the pedal does not stop me, just slows down..i found no adjustment from the pedal to the rear end...where or how could i adjust this pedal to stop the rider..thank you..

the rider was made approx 1995, 1998...its a lawn tractor not garden
it has a lever on left rear fender for cut adjustment and a lever on right rear fender for gear selection..6 forward and reverse..hope this is enough info without model number..thank you Russ

Hello Russ!

Look under the mower near the rear wheel on the right hand side. There should be a spring that pulls a lever there when the brake pedal is pushed. This lever is attatched to the side of the tranny with a 1/2" nut. This is the brake lever, and turning that nut clockwise tightens the brake.
