TR2/3/3A clutch/brake pedal question

Hi folks.. So I have the brake/clutch assembly apart. Sand blasted..looking good. My question..the grooved rings..Are they supposed to turn/rotate around their respective shaft? The ring on the clutch pedal turns..the brake side doesn't. I dry assembled the unit and the clutch pedal moves freely.. the brake pedal seems to drag. It leads me to think they should both be free. Right or wrong?

Yes I am kinda sure I know what piece you mean; the piece that looks like collar which helps hold the assembly together like a spacer in place once it is all together. Yes they should both spin so everything moves freely. Some pics would help
