Hi Keith this maybe helpfull

First does your tractor have a brake band, or does it have the disk

brake system.

Once we know that we can help you out farther. If it has a brake band,

is the brake lining still there or is it still good.

If it has a brake band, here is how I adjust mine. First I will go

through the adjustment for the brake, then the parking brake, then

the clutch.

Brake adjustment

1. first I push the brake pedal as far down as it will go, then tie

it there with a rope to the front axle so it holds it down while

making the adjustments.

2. Then with the tractor in neutral, try pushing the tractor, is it

moves then the brake needs adjusting.

3. under the tractor, in the middle of the break rod, there should be

what looks like a turnbuckle adjustment. it has a right hand tread

and a left hand tread, there should be a locking nut on one side or

the other, loosen it.

4. Now turn the adjustment so it makes the brake rod shorter, that

will put more pull on the brake ban, just turn it one turn at a time.

5. Now check to see if you can push the tractor, if you can't then

the adjustment was enough, tighten the lock nut back up, if the

tractor moved while pushing it then repeat step 4, until the tractor

cannot be pushed.

Parking brake adjustment

1. first I push the brake pedal as far down as it will go,then set

the parking brake lever.

2. Then with the tractor in neutral, try pushing the tractor, if it

moves then the brake needs adjusting.

3. Under the tractor, right by where the parking brake handle is

located there should be 2 nuts the are locked together, loosen them.

With the brake lever in the park position, tighten the nuts against

the brake mechanism so that they put added pull on the brake ban.

4. once again try pushing the tractor, if it moves those nuts need to

be adjusted again. If not then lock the 2 nuts together.

Clutch adjustment

1. first I push the brake pedal as far down as it will go, then tie

it there with a rope to the front axle so it holds it down while

making the adjustments.

2. With the tractor in NEUTRAL start the engine and see if the drive

belt is staying still or moving with the drive pulley on the engine,

it should be staying still at this point.

3. If the belt is staying still then there is no need for adjustment,

unless the belt is slipping while you are in gear and driving.

4. If the belt is moving with the drive pulley then adjustments need

to be made.

5. There are a couple of adjustments that can be done.

6. On the drive side of the tractor, right below the Dash, there

should be a slot, it has and idler pulley on the inside of the

tractor there.

7. with the brake/clutch pedal tied down at this point, you must

adjust that idler pulley so it makes the belt looser. then re-tighten

the idler.

8. with the tractor in NUETRAL restart the engine, see if the belt

still moves while the engine is running, if not it should be OK, if

it still still running repeat step 7

9. one of the most important part of the clutch system which gets

over looked is the belt guides on the drive pulley on the engine,

they have to be set so when the brake/clutch pedal is all the way

down, the the belt pushes against the guide on top of the drive

pulley. that guide has to be set so that the guide pushes the drive

belt out of the bottom of the drive pulley.

10. most important is that people forget that the engine is pulling

the belt from the bottom of the pulley, and the belt is running off

from the top of the pulley to the clutch pulley, which then put pull

on the belt to tighten it up to drive the trannys.

11. basically clutching and braking is just the opposite of the

engine driving the trans.

If you do all these adjustments, your tractor should work OK
