SECTION 6: MAKING ADJUSTMENTS
WARNING: Do not at any time make any
adjustment to riding mower without first
stopping engine and disconnecting spark
plug wire.
Brake Pedal
During normal operation of the rider mower, the brake
is subject to wear and tear. Check the brake
periodically by carrying out the following test:
Release the parking brake and place the rider
mower in neutral. Depress the brake pedal and try
to roll the rider mower. The tractor should not move.
If the tractor moves, adjust the brake.
WARNING: Do not adjust the brake while
the engine is running. Be sure to block the
wheels of the rider mower before making
any adjustments on the brake cable.
Adjustment to the brake pedal is made at the cable end.
See Figure 12 .
Set the parking brake and turn ignition key off.
Shift the cutting height lever to the lowest position.
Pivot the hood assembly up and remove the
grasscatcher bag and the side-discharge chute or
the mulching plug from the mower.
Disconnect wire from the spark plug.
Locate the brake cable on the right side under the
front housing. See Figure 12 .
Using a pair of 1/2" wrenches, loosen the jam nuts
and back the cable out to tighten or thread inward
to loosen. See Figure 12 inset.
Retighten the jam nuts when proper tension is
reached.
Unlock the parking brake and repeat the test
described above. Readjust if necessary.
