How do you adjust the brakes once they will not stop gator. Right now I can stop but a heavy loaded trailer behind it will give me a push for a distance before I can stop. Scary going down hill.

Brake adjusting rods are on either side of the transaxle under and a little forward of the axle shafts coming out to the hubs. With the emergency brake off, remove the springs, holding the brake arms, from the side of the frame. With springs removed move the brake fork front to back and see how much play is in the system. You need to tighten the adjusting nuts ( one hut and one lock nut ) until there is around 1/8 to 1/4 inch play front to back. Play will be between the rod going thru the brake fork and the washer in front of the lock nuts and spacer. Check play by moving brake fork front to back. Try to make both sides the same so it will stop evenly. This adjusts the emergency brake also. ....
