Is the hand brake supposed to lock on? I can't seem to adjust mine so it stays applied unless I keep it pulled up. thanks, gregjo1948

There's no twisting involved. Pulling up on the handle/lever, pulls a rod with a lock nut and spring. The rod passes into the brake housing and actuates the brake.I believe the nut is for adjustment and the spring is to push the rod back down, keeping the brake from actuating randomly. When the lever is pulled up, the spring compresses.

I'm refering to the brake next to the left side of the seat. It is applied by pulling up on it. It's a disc type inside a small drum. I thought when it was pulled up to apply it, it would cam over and set into a lock position. There is a nut that can change the adjustment but, it doesn't seem to help lock it.

I had one on a 4000 but it was completely worn out and letting water into the rear end so I removed it.
That was a few years ago.
Don't you twist the end of the handle to tighten it and then it will lock when you pull it up?
Don't remember now.

Are you talking about the hand brake on the Left side of the tractor like the British built ones had or the brake lock on the Right step plate?
