Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!

See link below, the brake is adjusted by tightening the nuts on the end of the brake rod, to compress the spring more. If brake does not hold, the brake drum has to be removed and the brake pads replaced.
