SOURCE: Have started to remove parts

If I'm thinking about the right thing, the clevis that is attached to the rear brake lever that the rod that goes to the rear brake master cylinder connects to, the clevis should have a pin connecting it to the rear brake lever. On the backside of the pin is either a cotter pin or a circlip holding the pin in. You may have to take the rear brake lever off to access the circlip or cotter pin.

Good Luck
Steve

Foot brake lever bolt has sheared, what do I need to replace and how do I gain access to it?


Hi, Clyde the brake pedal bolt is usually a threaded shoulder bolt and the threaded part left in the frame or support bracket needs to be extracted and if it's rusted your better off taking it to a shop they have special tools for such things for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

Rear brake lever sticking making my brek lights stay on


Hi, There should be a spring that pulls the lever back up when you remove your foot. It might be missing or broken. You might also have a mal adjusted switch that activates the brake light. it should be located near the pivot bolt for the brake lever. There is also a switch on the front brake lever. That might need adjusting or replacement.

I cant figure out how to install the buttonhole foot


Do you just need to attach it to the machine? Or are you having trouble using the foot itself?
It attaches the same way the other feet attach. Remove any foot that may still be attached to the machine. On the buttonhole foot look for the small silver pin that sits on the sliding piece with the small red line marks on it. Lift up your presser foot lever and attach the buttonhole foot's silver pin the same way you would attach any other foot.

As far as using the foot itself place your button on the back sliding piece snuggly till it fits in without falling out, adjust as needed. Pull the bottonhole lever down (it's located on the machine opposite the side of the presser foot lever) so that it rests behind the first lever on the buttonhole foot (small plastic piece raised on the left hand side of the foot that doesn't move). Slide the feed dog switch on the back of your machine so the feed dogs go down. Select your stitch and go. The machine automatically stops when done.

Hope this helps!

Craftsman 42'' mower when clutch-brake is engaged and released...the level does not return to original position which prevents mower from running at selected speed. my manual does not provide diagram of...


Seems that your clutch needs adjustment, no biggie here. Get your needle nose pliers and a spare ¼ inch bolt or pin. A small Philips screwdriver will also work. The needle nose pliers are for removing the cotter pin and the screwdriver (or bolt) will hold the brake lever in place while you make the adjustment. Then, check under the right side of the deck (side where the grass discharges) right under the plastic mat where your foot rests and next to the tractor's frame you will see the brake lever with the long spring attached. Have a helper move the brake/clutch pedal so you have a better idea of what's going on down there. Then:

1. Remove the cotter pin, washer, and brake spring from the
adjustable nut
2. Disconnect the adjustable nut from the brake lever assembly
and the parking brake latch.
3. Align the hole in the brake lever with the hole in the frame. Hold
the brake lever in place with your 1/4 inch pin, bolt or the screwdriver.
4. Pull the clutch rod forward until tight. Turn the adjustable nut
until the nut will fit through the hole in the brake lever.
5. Assemble the adjustable nut to the parking brake latch,
brake lever and brake spring. Fasten with the washer and
cotter pin.
6. Remove the 1/4 inch (6 mm) pin, bolt or scredriver.

That should return everything to normal. Assuming that there are no broken or bent parts in your clutch mechanism.
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it and thanks for using Fixya. Good luck!

What instructions are there for a brother nx400 even-feed foot


Remove the screw holding the regular presser foot and the presser foot holder and set aside.

Place the take-up lever in the highest position.

Hold the even feed foot with your right hand with your thumb holding the lever of the foot in its highest position. Place the even feed foot on the presser bar and make sure that the lever of the foot rests upon the needle bar thumbscrew. While holding it in place, fasten the foot to the presser bar with the screw.

As the needle bar goes up and down, the lever on the even feed foot should rest on the needle bar needle serew and go up and down as well.

Brake light stays on


Hi,

basically, the brake light is activated by either the front or the foot brake. Each has a small switch coupled to either the brake lever or the brake pedal. To check if it is the front brake lever, look closely on the right handlebar area where the front brake lever pivots. There would be a small switch with two (2) wires. Often this wires are connected by a spade type connector, remove any of the the two connector/wire and observe if the brake light would switch off. If yes, shorted front brake switch, if not, then chances are that the culprit is the foot brake. There are variations of designs how the foot brake activates the brake light. Most would call for a linkage (either short cable or metal rod). from the foot brake to a small tubular switch. Try removing any or both wires/connectors to the foot brake switch. If brake light is till one, then problem is elsewhere. If brake light is off, then the foot brake switch needs looking into. Often found faults is mis-adjusted switch. The switch rotates on a threaded tab. The switch has to be adjusted till the brake light powers off. In some cases, the swith has to be replaced.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
