I'm almost finished with my tractor & will be posting pics soon. I have a problem keeping my lever in the Start/Park position. When I let go of the brake pedal the lever moves back into the middle area. I have tried adjusting the parking brake adjusting rod where it goes into the ferrule in both directions to increase & shorten the throw of the lever. This doesn't help. When I adjusted to give me more rod length it was hard to push the lever back & it wanted to snap back in the middle. When I adjusted to give me less rod length it was really loose but still wanted to go back in the middle. I have checked everything to make sure I put everything back right. The only spring on this is the spring to pull the pedal back after releasing.
The only other thing I can think of is the brake pad adjustment....maybe my brake pedal isn't going far enough when applying the brakes. Since I haven't seen or heard anyone else complain about this I'm thinking it's got to be something I'm missing. Thanks for your response
