Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Can you provide the model and serial number of your machine so that I can better assist you?
Let me see what I can do for you with that information.
On your machine the parking brake linkage is part of the speed control lever. At the bottom of this linkage(ref 48) is an adjustable fitting, you can remove the cotter pin(ref 11) that holds it into the brake assembly and adjust the linkage so that it will stay locked into place. I have included a diagram of the linkage so that you have a better idea as to what you are looking for.
