Replaced Right Brake

Postby dan_c » Tue Feb 01, 2005 12:41 pm

Gentlemen,

I replaced my right brake. I purchased the new brake lining from OEM Tractor. It is a bonded lining (no rivets). I have read on this form where some of the guys have had problems with separation on this type of brake lining. Is it common for the new brake lining to drag? Do you have to wear in a new brake lining?

To change gear lube in the final drives, do you drop the bottom pan? Is there a fill level? Are new gaskets available or do you have to make them?

Thanks,

Agree with Dan. Level for final drives is the plug that a wratchet will fit in just above the pan. You will have to remove the drawbar to get to one of them.

Thanks Guys,

I thought that I had read here where someone else had the problem of a new brake draging and the advice was to ware it in? When I say draging, I can turn the wheel by hand with the tractor jacked up off the floor. The other wheel turns easily where the wheel with the new brake band turns kind of hard and stops as soon as you let go. What could the problem be? I have the pin that retains the brake band in the correct position and oriented correctly. It drags even with the ajustment rod disconnected. Any further thoughts?

From what I have read it is not a problem to be overly concerned about. When the band is new it is not perfectly round and it takes the pressure from a few brake applications to make the band form to a round shape. This is hearsay from other posts so dont take it as fact :?: .

Dan, I believe that amount of drag is normal. You can run the new brake in by driving around with light to moderate pressure applied to the pedal. It shouldn't take much to wear it in. You will probably also want to try to adjust the other brake to even them up so that when they are latched together, they will brake the same.
