My LT1000 has no brakes! Is there a diagram of the breaking system? Thanks!

Usually there is a small round shaped brake over the rear axle under the fender in back. This has a bolt connected to your clutch/brake pedal with a nut on it for adjustment. Chances are just tightening it up a little will give you brakes back.

Craftsman 14 hp 42'' cut mower brake problems

Well the adjustment is in the rear of the tractor above the axle, their should be 1 9/16 clearance when the parking break is depressed, if it's not here than adjust it until it is making sure to tighten down the locknut when completed. Otherwise just replace your pads via craftsman's website. They provide breakdowns for all their units via the model/serial number of your tool.
