Welcome to the forum! I'm no JD guru, so can't help with your questions. Hopefully one will make a showing in a bit! Might get more response in the JD forum with this.

Welcome to the forum. To get the brake pedal off you will need to get down under the fender deck and you will see where it is mounted. There should be a bolt and nut that needs to come out. The pedal assembly slides off and on that shaft. It is probably rusted on there pretty good so start soaking it down with some PB Blaster / WD40 and just keep working it back and forth, I usually use a couple pry bars and a soft blow hammer. There is also a key and key way on the shaft. You should be able to work it loose and remove it through the hole on the fender deck. When you go to put it back on I always clean ever thing up good and put some anti- seeze on it to make easier to remove next time,

As for the adjusting the variable spreed control there are several steps to it. And it has been a long time since I have done it I would have to get my OP manual out to look it up. Maybe one of these other guys can walk you through it before I have time to find my book and post on how to do it.

The variator can be a real pain to adjust. As others have mentioned, it is a multi-step process and a service manual will make it much easier. I have finally figured it out on my 1966 110 after two years of trying. Also, there are several variations of the variator set-up used in the RF tractors based on the serial number of the tractor. I cannot speak to the 110's like yours but would expect to also find rolling production changes based on the serial number.
