Hi Folks,

I don't have a service manual for my tractor and it's in need of brake adjustment. I haven't looked into this much, but I was wondering if anyone could give me guidance on how to do this?

Thanks!
Jim

:Welcome1: I haven't had any problems with my brakes either, but maybe contact your dealer and see if they can't help you.

Jimmer,

Welcome to the forum! :Welcome1: Are you talking about the brakes or the emergency brake or both?

Jimmer,

Welcome to the forum! :Welcome1: Are you talking about the brakes or the emergency brake or both?


Thanks for the welcome. I'm talking about my brakes. Seems like I really have to press down on the pedal to get little braking. When I engage the parking brake it doesn't hold the machine in place.

Cheers,
Jim

Don't know if this will help you but here are two blowups of the JD2305 braking system if you do need to adjust the linkage. Also... :Welcome1: We are glad to have you.

ya-ya,

Thanks for posting that! :thThumbsU I think it is a linkage issue too. As for the parking brake; your set up should hold the tractor, but it's not really designed to do so on a hill. :)

Thanks Guys! I'll have a better look at it tonight, otherwise I may take it in to the dealer. I'm really enjoying this "little" monster!
