Mon Mar 16, 2009 11:45 am

hey all was looking at my 1971 154 and noticed it does not have that brake support plate that the clutch brake retainer and brake arm go with, anybody know how thick that sucker is? i'm hoping to get a thickness and the just space it out with another plate, washers, etc. called around and this part was not available ,would that be ok to do? also the brake lining, does the wood part that sticks out of the lining face the [rear of the tractor] or front towards the radiator, just a little piece of wood sticks out that lining and when i took it off it was the end that was making contact, just checking, thanks for any info,
