Hey all...KenRo here with the inherited 444. I have noticed that when in forward and I brake the lever moves to neutral and the tractor stops abruptly, when in reverse, the lever does not move all the way to neutral and stop so you have to manually move to neutral. Is there some kind of adjustment on this. I see that the brake band can be tightened to the drum but it seems like something else is the issue. Thanks for the help.

To give you a short answer, the procedure to adjust the parking brake and the TCV linkage is in the service manual. It would be hard to explain without the pics to go by. (at least for me)

After adjusting the brakes as above, You need to check out and adjust the linkage from the travel handle to to the TCV. Be sure the inline ball joint is not worn or sloppy and the "L" shaped rod doesn't have a groove wore in it where it connects to the lever. The linkage on these GTs need to be pretty tight to work properly. You can adjust the linkage by loosening the locknut on the "L" shaped rod and turning the ball joint. Snug up the locknut and try it out. If not good, re-adjust, if good, tighten locknut good. Keep us posted.
