    I have a 2001 proline 36 belt drive, floating deck. I'm having problems with speed and braking. If i adjust the rods to go faster i have no brakes when going down a hill, and if i adjust the rods so that i can brake the speed is noticeibly slower. Is this a problem with the drive belts or do i have to live with the slower speed because that is the way it's made?

    Set the drive first. Once you get that find the linkage coming from the brakes and adjust them to the point that you can't push the mower with the parking brake on. I reccomend adjusting every thing the same on both sides to get a baseline.
