Poulan riding mower model number 917.270451. How do I remove the brake disc to replace the pucks?


If you don't have a parts diagram for the transaxle go to []. Enter the model of the transaxle which is D4360-139.

Remove the nut (item 23) and the actuating arm (item 67). Remove the 2 bolts (item 66) and carefully remove the dowel pins (item 65). Remove the brake jaw (item 64) and you can remove the brake disc (item 62). The brake disc will pull of the transaxle shaft.

When you assemble the parts back with the new pucks, run the nut (item 23) up so the pucks are close to the brake disc. Leave around .030 space between the pucks and the disc. Hold the brake with your foot and try to push the mower. Be careful to not get the mower near any ditches or lakes until you are sure the brakes will work.
