I need to glue my brake pad material to the bands.  What do you all use?  I'm guessing it should be something that can flex right?

 

Oh, and here are some pics of my project that I promised.  Sorry I didn't take more in progress pictures.  I thought that I had but cannot find them.

I was doing some cleaning so the tractor caught some stuff.  I'll post once I get her all back together.

 

Thanks

Looks like another job well done , strip it down and put it back together, like a puzzle. One sharp looking tractor, thanks for all of the outstanding pictures.

I am not sure on the glue, maybe some kind of two part epoxy?

 

It is looking great! I like the black!

I was thinking the expoxy thing or maybe even JB weld but didn't know if that would be too stiff.  I read somewhere (but can't remember where) that someone used some sort of glue or epoxy but can't remember what it was.  Thanks for the compliments!  The tractor didn't look bad before but then I turned it over and figured I'd pait it the way I wanted it.  I may have went a little too far with the disassembly though lol.

Just read elsewhere....Use POR15 for affixing brake linings.

My update:

I looked into por15 but I keep getting paint???  I'm probably not looking in the right area.  I have come up with a few options that I'd like everyone's input on.  I'm looking at gorilla glue, Goop automotive, and Pliobond.  I've seen pliobond suggested a few times in my searching.  I'm worried the gorilla glue will be too rigid.  The Goop automotive is supposed to be flexable but I haven't read anything about it.

Nice tractor.A lot go with contact cement . You really would not want any thing that is flexible you want it solid in place . If it flexes it will give it enough to tear lining off.Clean off with acetone to get good bond.  You can look at T-840 adhesives its made for attaching clutch & brake linings.

I sent my bands out to a brake wholesaler shop in Ft.Wayne, IN that has done much for me over years. He stated $20 each over phone for reline and clean-up. Can put the old Woven liner in like mine has and all.  Waiting to hear when done and shipping back yet. Cost me $5 to send them and probly same or close to return. Better than driving 20 miles each way with time and distance it takes. I'll let you know how they look, maybe take pix if I remember.

glgrumpy, I look forward to the report!  I bought garilla glue epoxy and I plan on trying that.  My linings were in good shape but they were only half way attached.  That is the only reason I removed them.  The epoxy is water resistant and not waterproof but that shouldn't be an issue.  Also rated up to 180 degrees.  I don't think they get all that hot.  What do you all think?

Thanks again

I've heard contact cement is used, but you have to make sure it is aligned before touching the parts to each other, they stick instantly and won't come off again!  You can put slick paper between them with glue on and glue needs to be dried some forgot to say, and align parts, then carefully pull out the paper as you press down on the sticking parts. Then you can clamp it aroind the drum and help it stay overnight. Not sure how shops do them. Haven't heard from them yet. Was expecting to hear, but looks like will be next week.
