Have a JD 1050. Came back to the tractor after having off for a few minutes while brush hogging. The linkage that hooks the brake peddle to the arm of the brake at the rear axel was hanging down. A pin was missing. No Problem to repair and hook back up. Question is - as the linkage has adjustments on both ends - is that one end is or appears to be bent. Is this normally bent to facilitate attachment or was it probably bent during the use of the tractor?
