Ford 641 Parking Brake

Does anyone have a close up picture of the right hand side parking brake mechanism on a Ford 641 workmaster?

The Ford shop manual, an IT shop manual and the CNH exploded parts diagram have been of little help for exactly how the Right side originally hooks together. Many Google images are out there, but nothing with a close up of this part. The parking brake consists of a spring loaded metal pull rod that engages a brake pawl against a serrated tooth. The left side works fine on this tractor, but the right side was in rough shape.

The pull rod seemed badly bent, which I assume was originally straight, so we straightened it. It appears as if this pull rod must be angled forward to connect with the actuating lever (item #9 in the CNH diagram) but not sure if that"s the way it supposed to be--seems to bind in the top retaining bracket #19. The diagram shows the lever also is supposed to have 2 holes, mine has just one. Since the left hand side works well, I assume the right side must have once worked OK too, just don"t know how it was hooked together originally.

Hope someone can shed some light on this. Thanks!

Any body know where to get those springs? I've had no luck so far.

Thanks so much! This was our guess as to how it should be put together.

So the spring loaded pull rod--is it supposed to be straight, or did it have a slight bend in it so that it passes easily through the upper bracket?

Do not trust these brakes.They can unlatch on their own.
