How do you remove and replace the brake assembly?
ANSWER Bill, We'd send you the Brake Package information, If you had supplied an email address. But in short, first it's best to have the removal tool TJ038315, but I imagine you could use a chisel or punch and hammer to remove it, but it won't be as easy. You'll need to raise the front of the washer or lay it on it's back. remove both belts and the transmission drive pullet. At the one o'clock position, on the damper and above the brake package you'll see a 7/8 in. hex bolts and clip, remove the bolt and clip. You can now use the tool(s) to remove the brake package by turning the assembly in a counterclockwise direction, until the threads on the brake clear the threads in the damper. You can now slide the package off the lower portion of the transmission housing and off the unit. Remove the bearing assembly from the top of the brake package by tapping on the side of the assembly, with it upside down. Reeverse the procedure and you'll be OK. Good Luck and Thanks
