I have never had to work on the brakes on one of those. The brakes are inside the tranny, as you suspected, if it has the MAT transmission. There may be an adustment at the brake arm on the tranny...can't remember for sure.

Ken,

Here is your brake assembly, The only real adjustment is with nut #20 on the end of rod #11. But, In a pinch you could remove screw #15 then arm #4 and re-locate it on the splines to get just a little more pull on the shoes.






Good Luck

Very clear diagram

Ok looks like a very simple set up..
Looked at the mower this afternoon I presume the brakes are
not very strong?
If I adjust them to where I cant push it in nutrole and then back them off to where I can push it,it dosn't have enough
brake power to stop on a incline..
Im thinking there may be to much slop in the linkage as the brake lever on the Trans dosn't move much on full pedel down
looking at the cam system I would think the shaft on the brake lever would turn at least 1/4 turn,but looking at the lever while fully depresing pedel I can't see the lever moveing more then a 1/8 in at the farthest point from the shaft.

Thanks
Ken
