    :confused: :confused: HELLO I HAVE A NEW MINI Z 42 WITH ABOUT 15 HRS ON IT,AND HAVE NOTICED THAT THE STEERING LEVERS WERE KIND OF STIFF WHEN APPLYING
    THEM IN THE PARK BRAKE POSITION.I HAVE NOTICED RECENTLY THAT THE
    RIGHT SIDE LEVER KEEPS MOVING ITSELF TO THE NEUTRAL POSITION WHEN
    ON THE TRAILER.THE LEFT SIDE DOES NOT MOVE AT ALL AND STILL HAS SOME RESITANCE LEFT.CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THERE IS AN ADJUSTEMENT
    OR ,SOMETHING TO TIGHTEN TO PREVENT THIS.THANK YOU FIRE

    The linkage is adjustable.
    Being that it is new, I would take it to your dealer and let them look at it and adjust it.

    Hi PJ I found one of the nuts on the steering lever missing under the mower.
    Its the nut that is bolted on to a stud? well i replaced the nut and it seems to
    have solved the problem.I did ask my dealer and he said there is an adjustement for the brake but was not to sure if it was the same as a fasttrack.thnaks for all your help Fire::)

    It is similar to the FasTrak brake adjustment but not exactly the same.
