You can power the drive up without the brake attached. It's just there to prevent head damage durring transport. You don't really need a feeler gauge, just adjust it so that when it closes (IE, power applied, brake is off) the pad isn't touching the head motor anymore.

If the brake isn't touching now that's kind of strange. Also, i wouldn't move the head lever with a screwdriver, just by the rod coming out of the bottom of the motor. I would think that's more gentle to the heads.

I took some pictures of my Widget. This one has the brake adjusted properly I believe:

there are other pictures in that folder ( ) perhaps they could be useful to you.
