    Brake adjustment on a LT176

    Hello,
    I just recently purchased my first John Deere Rider and it is in dire need of a brake adjustment. I tried to google it and nothing came up. Does anyone have a suggestions or pics. Also the clutch engages at the top of the pedal instead of slowly like I am used to in a car or truck. Is there an adjustment for this? Thanks a bunch for any help.
    Kevin

    I saved a copy of the brake adjustment procedure to my laptop but have not had time to post. I will post it as soon as I get an opportunity.

    Thank you, that would be great. The picture that was posted helps but does not explain "the how". Thanks to both of you.

    OK. I, finally, got a chance to fire up the laptop. It turns out, I saved the adjustment procedure from a LT180. I can't find manuals for the LX1xx mowers on-line. I can get manuals for all of the LX2xx machines. I cross referenced the brake parts and found several Sabre models that made use of the same brakes. None of those manuals are available, either. A look at the parts catalog shows us this:

    Brake Adjustment LX176

    Yes, That looks very close to what I have but when I put the mower up in the air without the rear wheels and slid under it, I could not find any sort of adjustment screw or bolt that would allow me to
    take up the slack in the pedal. Currently the pedal goes right to the floor with little or no resistance. I am afraid if I had to stop in a hurry I would be unable to do it. Especially with an excitable 6 year old running around. Any ideas? Oh and one more little bit of info, not that it should matter. The hood of the tractor says LX176 but the model number is 172B110885. The mower has a 14hp Kawasaki motor and 48" deck.
