Hey WWP. Back to the t1400. I'm going to be keeping mine for a while longer. It mows so well I may keep it till it dies. As to the blades turning all the time, will they keep turning even in deep grass? If so the idler is frozen in place. Try some WD-40 at the point where it connects to the frame and after some soaking time try to move the arm back and forth. If it only turns when not under load the the deck brake is probably the only problem. The cable will have to be attached and adjusted. This thing can be a real pain in the neck. The arm where the brake attaches can also be temperamental. Be careful to check the condition of the deck where this mounts before forcing this part much. On my deck the metal is rusted through around this part. It seems to be an area where water collects from the top and tremendous wear occurs from the bottom. Let us know how the repairs go today.
