Does the brake move when you press the pedal? Did you adjust the brakes?

When i press the pedal, it will move the the large spring on the brake assembly, but does not compress brake pad to the brake rotor, I did try adjusting the center hex nut, and did not change the outcome, No brakes still.

Can you move the brake lever on the side of the tranny by hand?
