Hello all, and thanks for the great info contained here in GGT, it has been very helpful.  So I found a 67/68 not sure, Squire 12 out in Phoenix AZ, picked it up for dragging a small horse arena.  It sat for a long time, (assumed as it seems to have the original tires and parts), but it runs and appears to be very strong.  We are cleaning it up so we can drag a small spike/blade around the horse arena.   The challenge is the brake is missing.  The brake drum is missing.  The lining is there, but missing the abrasive coat that would lock onto the drum.  I assume that parts are non existent, but hopeful anyway.  Anyone make their own drum/strap, or come up with a way to add brakes? 

 

Thanks in advance, Marc... Pics will come soon.

The brake lining can be purchased from McMaster-Carr and probably other places, and glued into place.

As far as the brake drum goes, I have no idea.....Sorry!

Welcome to GTTalk. You could check with our site sponsors to see if they can help on that brake drum.

Welcome to the forum! 

 

If its hydrostatic I really wouldn't bother about making a brake beyond something to work as a parking brake.

trying to add the picture, but don't know how....  where are the instructions on adding a pic or image in the post?

 

Thanks to all that responded, I saw the brake lining materials, but since I don't have a drum, not sure on what to do yet...  I reached out to the person I got the tractor from, see if they had any drum looking thing in the garage where the drum was.... no response yet.

Marc:

Do you have a pic of your brake band assembly that would go around the "missing" brake drum? Have you found a brake drum yet?From what I have learned, the drum is about 4" in diameter, 1" wide, but

Thanks.

I have not done much as for looking for a break drum.   I run it with no breaks, I know its probably not smart at all, and a accident waiting to happen, but after some research I figured unless I have one custom made, I probably wont be getting a drum... 

I confirmed its a Gilson S series.  I'll try to post a clear picture of the brake setup I still have.  

 

Thanks, Marc
