Continuation of the 536-918400 restoration saga

I have replaced the belts and it blows snow!! Next issue; releasing the "clutch" handle does not stop the forward motion or the auger. I hear a scraping metal-on-metal noise with it released and suspect it is a worn out brake lining. The belt idlers are barely touching the belts with the handle released.

Tomorrow I start the quest of removing the brake assembly and replacing the lining. I have a chunk of "brake shoe" material I plan on using to fabricate the lining. Any heads up or hints?

Mine looks like this if you are looking for something to compare it with.

Pulley brake

Thanks for the picture. I'll be working on it this week. Do you know if the part is available anywhere or is it time for me to fabricate one?
