Hello everyone new here. Ok this is what I have a Craftsman Lawn Tractor that's my wife's grandmothers that I'm fixing just got done fixing the burned up wires so now when I push in the clutch break pedal nothing really happens so if I'm on it cutting grass it will not stop just keeps going lol. So anyone know where I should look for there is nothing in the manual about it at all. The model is 917.272072

 

Thanks

Welcome to GTT. It sounds like some of the linkage may have come apart. There are rods to the brake and the clutch system. Follow them from the pedal and the shaft that it is on, to each function. Sometime the brakes and clutch need adjustment. That should be in the manual. If not, check our Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

The pins like to Gaul fast inside the caliper.You will have to pull the caliper off and pull both pins and clean it up.I like to run a drill bit through the holes to clean them out.Then put Anti Seize or heavy duty greese ONLY ON THE PINS and reinstall and adjust.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! I'm feeding my face right now, but I'll check Sears Parts soon to see what machine this is.

So you have no clutch or brake? This looks to be a newer than 2000 model, probably similar to my DLT.

If the belt is original or OEM, I would check routing to make certain it's not off or over any of the belt guides. The ones especially around the engine pulley are very important for clutching.
