Robert, Here is a link to a video presentation done by Raymond Durban: viewtopic.php?f=54&t=66324 You have to countersink the rivet holes with ideally a 5/16" forstner bit. Lining and rivets available from McMaster-Carr. After you review the vidoe, ask any questions you might have.

I have to stand on my brakes to get the Cub to come to stop so I'm wondering what gaskets I should anticipate needing when I place an order for some new brake bands. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Posco, you won't need any gaskets to do a brake replacement but it's a great time to replace any seals in that area that may be leaking. In particular, the differential side bearing seals and the input shaft seal on the final drives. There's much info, here on the forum, about both of the above.

Thanks, Gary. I haven't had the best of luck narrowing my searches for some reason but i'll make note of the info you gave me when the time comes. I never knew restoring a tractor would be so immensely satisfying.
