IH 184 Brake Job

Postby wrink3 » Tue Dec 10, 2019 11:14 am

I'm looking at the manuals and getting ready to buy parts to do the brakes on my 184. Other than the obvious parts such as the brake bands, rear final pan gaskets, and the differential shaft seals for the differential shafts (Hamilton Bob lists all these on his website) what parts do I need to have on hand for a minimally invasive brake job? I don't want to take a lot of extra things apart but do want to do the smart things. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Larry

Wait until you have the brake bands exposed. Then decide on needed parts.

Working on my 154, thought I should check the brakes. After getting access to the brake bands and seals, they were still good.

Final pan gasket area, I like black RTV.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Good suggestion. I've decided to change the hydraulic hose to the 3 pt lift since I have to disconnect it anyway. Will I need to bleed the hydraulic pump when I put things back together--it should be well oiled on the inside?
