    The parts that I am looking for is the L shaped brackets with the little brake pad on it. This is engaged (presses against the blade pulleys) when you disengage the blades. There are 2 of them on the mower deck.

SOURCE: have a john deere lawn tractor. Blade will not

Check both belts on deck. Check if the clutch is clicking in. If not it will most likely need a new pto switch.

SOURCE: my 1979 111 john deere lawn tractor deck blades shut off

If it has a clutch, that would be the problem. An electric clutch will kick on and off when it is hot if it is bad.

I have a John Deere 355d lawn tractor. Every time I engage blade or release brakes the mower dies out. Checked safety seat switch and its not that.

Try pulling up on your PTO switch to engage the RIO switch. If it works then there is a problem with the reverse switch is located near the directional pedals/linkage or on the transmission. Attached is a picture of the switch from the John Deere parts catalog and a wiring diagram.

You are going to have to disconnect belt and try to turn pulleys on drive system to locate the excact location. It sounds like a belt tension or bearing problem to me.

I have a poulan pro PR1842STC; the blades won't stop turning after I disengage the mower belt

On the top of the mower deck, there is a spring that will pull to disengage the blade idler pulley. At the same time, it will release two springloaded arms with brakes that press on the pulleys at the top of the blade spindles. On top of the mower deck at the back, the two spring loaded arms may be held out of the braking position by a cam. Make sure the cam is free to allow the blade brakes to activate when you disengage the blades. If arms are out of alignment, or the parts are too worn, the blade brakes won't move and the blades keep spinning, even after you have disengaged and the safety switch is deactivated. This is a dangerous situation and should be fixed soon. Good luck.

Blade too far forward on upper pulley

On Hobart's website ( I found a manual and parts breakdown of your meat saw. There doesn't seem to be an adjustment knob like on most band saws to adjust the tracking of the blade on the wheels. If you go there select the Service & Parts tab, then the Manuals & Support tab. Half way down the page select "View or download operator manuals" then look for the "Click here to go directly to the Resource Center" link. Two more pages and you'll find a model number search box. 6614 will give you the parts breakdown and manual but neither indicate a way to adjust the wheels. Most likely you have a damaged bearing or wheel shaft that's causing one or both wheels to be out of alignment enough to make the blade track as you say it does. Their website also has a "Contact Us / Dearler Directory" link where you may be able to get more assistance on how to fix your saw.
