I have a 240 tractor that runs well but has no brakes. Any advice? What type of braking system do these have? Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the forum zipperdog! You can look up exploded diagrams for John Deere here:

John Deere - Parts Catalog

Looks like there might have been two types of brakes used on those. One being a drum style and the other being a wet disc type. Below are the images I found at the link above of them. You can also find images there of the clutch and brake pedal linkages.

The "wet" style is the first photo:
