    Both my 27 and 29 HP turf tigers break the break pad bolt, which holds one end of the break pad,at least once every two months. Any one else see the same? How should I adjust the lever for presure if that is the problem?

    My 27 hp Wildcat had both break within two weeks of each other. I replace them with grade 8 bolts and so far so good. I am not sure if the factory bolts are grade 8 from the way they sheered off. The remaining portion of the bolt turned out with little effort so I am thinking they may have worked themselves loose.
