I just purchased a 2003 44" Toro Walk-Behind (Model# 30318) and had some questions about it... I can't seem to get the right brake (steel strap) to tighten enough against the drum to grip as well as the left. I'm sure the person who used it before me mainly turned right, left turns are very good. But even after tightning the wingnut down a bit and compensating with the v-belt rod, it squeals a bit and grabs, but not that tight. I had to back it off a bit because I tightened it so much it was dragging... I haven't yet taken off the drum to see if its scorched, but before I do, does this sound like the problem? Or could it be the metal belt that tensions around it. I don't know much about what to look for as far damage needing to be replaced. Does the strap just last until it breaks? The difference between part prices is about $40. The motor that came with it is a Kohler Command Pro 15, the model is a CV15T. What does the T mean? Toro partsmaster lists the mower as coming with a peerless 700-070A, 5 forward and 1 reverse. But the trans thats on it is a peerless 700-08(or 6)2. I can't make out the one number because of the gasket sealent. Its a 4 forward and 1 reverse. What gives? The shift plate matches it, but it seems odd that toro tells me different. Thanks for your help!
