Tractor brake is weak

When I step on the brake/clutch my 40'' Murray Wide body LT (select) it won't come to a stop quickly. It kind of rolls to a stop. My front yard slopes to a busy street and it can be a safety hazard.

How to fix gears on riding lawn mower

First: check your drive belt. Don't have the product manual? Download it from the Sears or Murray website. Second: Check your clutch/brake linkage. The clutch may need adjustment. Procedure on manual. The clutch wears over time and needs to be readjusted.

What is the lever under the seat for on a murry lawn mower?

Since you didn't post a model number or any other pertinent information about your tractor, I will take a wild guess and say that you are probably referring to the transaxle release lever that allows you to roll the tractor when the engine is not running.
If you want better information you will have to find the model number that is also under the seat and either post it with your question or you can go to >> << and see if they have the owner's manual available for download

I have a model 42515X92 Murray mower with two problems. Brake pedal bottoms out before being able to stop the mower and the shift lever no longer goes fully back to engage reverse. I believe both need...

You can go to , put in your model number and download the manuals. As for teh brakes, there is a 1/2 inch nut in the center of the brake caliper that you tighten or losen to adjust the brakes. Put your tractor in neutral on a flat surface, tighten the nut just until you can no longer roll the tractor freely, stop as soon as you reach this point then back the nut off 1/2 turn and you should have good brakes again.

How do I adjust the brakes on a Murray 17hp 42'' twin cylinder wide body?

find your brake disc on your trans axle
find the 1/2 or 9/16 nut on the outside of the brake disc and turn it clockwise1/8 turn and retry your brakes 1/8 turn. at a time until you achieve adequate breaking
do not overtighten that nut as if you do you will not be able to move your mower in neutral after you let out on the brake /clutch
