9020 Powermax brakes

Recommended Posts

Okay Men, I took the brakes apart. What a lot of crap and rust and stuff in there! No wonder they did not work. Also, 2 of the springs were broken and one was stretched. A good case for wearing safety glasses; when I was taking off a broken brake spring, it snapped, shot up and hit me in the eye. There was grease on my eyelid, so good reflexes, but I'm writing with a blurry left eye right now. Also, the link assembly yoke and actuating link are pretty froze up. BTW, I forgot to have my digital camera out there to take pictures! Robert E, you have taken these apart...looks like I need 3 new springs...might as well do all 4, and some jam nuts, studs, and link assemblies. My dealer can get springs for $21...sheesh! most other parts do not show up as available on web sites I've checked. Anyone have any idea's used or otherwise? Also, the disc assemblies are worn smooth but $134 for new ones. Now I know why people part these out $$$$! Paul, guess I'll be a brake expert....Any help would be greatly appreciated.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
