Craftsman LT1000 brake problems

Sandy I am looking for the schematics for my LT100 mower. I am replacing brake parts and I need to know I am doing this properly. Usually I can noodle through simple mechanical problems with minimal parts left over. Since brakes are a little bit important, I want to make sure these are done correctly.

Thanks,
Sandy


george Brakes on a craftsman are really quite
simple. There is only one on the rear
right or left side of the transmission.
There is a little rotor and a set of small
brake pads that will rub against it.

Btakes are mostly only used for parking. If you are
going down a hill and you press on the brake pedal.
BAD NEWS, you first dissengage the tyransmission
and you start freewheeling. Be ready to jump off
as the anemic brake will not stop you.
Best bet is to leave the trans in geer and go down
with the speed of the geer.
