5hp 2 stage Murray snowblower brake rod problem

Hello I own a Noma/Murray E2450-000 5hp snowblower. Diagram below link
The auger brake rod seems to have play in it which makes brake pad wear uneven on belt.
Impeller and auger stopped so i looked and found auger belt shredded and almost broke. When I replaced auger belt and started snowblower the brake pad moved to side of auger belt and destroyed pad.
I bought new auger brake pad part #581540 and
spring part # 318468
installed them and wore thru brake pad before i could turn off in 5sec.
I noticed brake rod has play in it. Bought another brake pad and want to fix /replace brake rod? Any ideas ? Anyone have brake rod issues?
