Thanks for the muffler help. Going to work on that this weekend. But side issue cropped up...

Left brake works good. Press pedal down, good resistance, tractor stops. Right brake... Pedal is very loose, travels far, doesn't stop tractor. Take plate off, tighten brake band. Press brake, feel resistance, then hear "pop"... Brake is loose again. Rinse and repeat.

Is something stripped? Or a broken spring?
How far do I need to go in to investigate this... And where do I even start?

Well, I went out tonight and was only able to adjust it another quarter turn, and this time it did not "pop" back at me... So I am confused. The right pedal has a lot of slop in it, and it doesn't seem to have any more "adjustment" left to it now.
But at least it will stop the tractor. Not sure what that was all about, will see what happens. I'm sure one of these years I'll have to pull them out and put the new liners in them, and fight the dang brake pin I've read so much about.

I probably ought to adjust the pedal travel so it doesn't have another 1-2" of travel past the left brake, but for another night...

If the 1/2"NF adjusting threads are not slipping, maybe the 3/8"NC threads on the rod, or in the block, are? The only part you can replace without tear down is the control rod.

Adjustment nut could be stripped or the band could be broken or the band could be sticking so you need to adjust it more. Me I would take the nut off and check it then go from there
