My 78 Ariens has a spring loaded lever with a brake pad (rubber) on it and when impeller released the pad is suppose to spring back against the big impeller pulley to stop it (I think). when impeller is engaged the lever is forced away from pulley. but mine never stopped either so.. Not sure if they really work or not. I know those pads get wore and/or hard from time as well as spring tension.
