with the help of Brian and a friends tractor lift (tha thing is awesome) i can clearly see there is no material left on the brake. i have a couple questions, to the left behind the brake is another wheel that has a pad os some sort that rides on it. what is it? should there be material on that pad? photo one.

second question is there a return spring for the brake or does the linkage from the clutch release it when you engage the clutch. IMG_5415.JPG IMG_5418.JPG

Yes there are 2 brake pads (of different sizes).  ...These were available as assemblies with the pad already installed, or just the pad which can be riveted to your current parts.

 

Check with the sponsors for replacement parts.

 

There is no spring to retract the brake.

As Bruce mentioned there should be a pad on drum assembly as well, the little pad to contact the drum is to stop the tractor from moving , the other on the driveshaft shops your clutch from spinning so you dont grind gears

 

Your last picture is the brake pad adjustment to tighten down as the pad wears 

 

I have both pads and rivets instock

These are installed by hammering down on the one end with a ball peen hammer.

I usually put an old valve stem in a vice and use that to press the rivet all the way through the pad and plate, it also keeps it tight when your hitting it, the brass kind of curls over.

Ok so my buddy and I installed the brake pads, put everything back together and it still won't go into gear. With the clutch depressed and holding the clutch disk you can not turn the motor by hand. If you turn the mother by hand and grab the driveshaft with the clutch depressed it stops the motor from turning. We tried wrapping on it firmly with a hammer with no luck. I am now open to further ideas to get my 850 rolling.
