Is the hand brake supposed to lock on? I can't seem to adjust mine so it stays applied unless I keep it pulled up. thanks, gregjo1948

Are you talking about the hand brake on
the Left side of the tractor like the
British built ones had or the brake lock
on the Right step plate?

I'm refering to the brake next to the left side of the seat. It is applied by pulling up on it. It's a disc type inside a small drum. I thought when it was pulled up to apply it, it would cam over and set into a lock position. There is a nut that can change the adjustment but, it doesn't seem to help lock it.

I had one on a 4000 but it was completely
worn out and letting water into the rear
end so I removed it.
That was a few years ago.
Don't you twist the end of the handle to
tighten it and then it will lock when you
pull it up?
Don't remember now.

There's no twisting involved. Pulling up on the handle/lever, pulls a rod with a lock nut and spring. The rod passes into the brake housing and actuates the brake.I believe the nut is for adjustment and the spring is to push the rod back down, keeping the brake from actuating randomly. When the lever is pulled up, the spring compresses.
