MTD Single-Speed Transaxle Brake Adjustment

Andy This might save someone a headache. The instructions in the owners manual for my MTD lawn tractor for adjusting the brake disc, which is located on the transaxle, are wrong. They say to loosen the hex nut, set the gap, then retighten the hex nut. Do not retighten the hex nut! The gap between the disc and the puck is set by the position of the hex nut, which is a lock nut. If you retighten it you will be locking up the transaxle and may damage the brake assembly. While it is loose, insert your feeler gauge between the disc and puck and slowly tighten the nut until the feeler gauge sticks a little while removing it. That's it. Hope this helps.
daviddude thanx for the info.
