I’ve got a 1987 115 that I brought back from the dead and it runs great. Unfortunately I can’t get the brake to work properly. It will engage on its own when I’m trying to cut. I found a reference to a “service bulletin” a while back that apparently addressed this issue but I couldn’t find any further info as to what the fix was.
I’ve tried everything to correct this with no luck. If anyone is aware of the fix for this I’m all ears. I’ve had the brake assembly apart several times trying to fix this and it appears to be in good shape. The brake works and can be engaged or disengaged as normal but it continues to engage when not needed. I’m open to ideas. Here’s a pic of my problem child:
