The brake linkages and rock shaft need to be freed up and lubed as GL indicated.

 

I made a brake pad from an unused automotive disc brake pad. Cut the pad material off with a band saw and shaped with a belt sander. Glued the inside pad in place with epoxy.

 

The needle bearing part no. is  MTD 741-0154 and is available by search.

 

Part no. for the fan is  MTD 931-0317. Several sources are available. Best price I found was $25 with free shipping.

The return spring is part no.  MTD 932-0121. Available by search.

 

The right pull bar can be made (same as the left) or ordered from On-Point Welding. He makes hitch parts for the 990. Scroll down to see the pictures of the hitch and parts.

I have a few extra brake assembly's off these. Would have to look and see what  have. Disc, right?  I have about three and one disc even if I recall. You can't remove one axle case bolt to get out of frame with-out removing the disc and I wrecked one once doing that.  Can did them out and take a pix or two if interested. The setting is on the puck holder. Just a lock-nut in center of cam that makes the cam work early or late for pressure. The rod to it also has an adjuster for the pedal action, AND a big spring on that for allowing the pedal to move more after brake is on to push the control back to N. Usually all the rockshafts and links are rusted up and not working correct. Just oiliing and greasing the lower link/cam part makes big diff and the rockshaft where it passes thru the frame sides.

 

Yes, I'm interested in the break pad if you could snag a pic or two that would be great. I've got the disk and break assembly freed up just working on the adjustment part now. Thanks.

I'm cleaning up my front rims and hubs and realized one of the lugs is bent. Do the front lugs pop out (pressed in) of the hub? Any feedback on how to replace one of these bolts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi. Any chance you'd have apart number for the rod ends for the drag link for the steering? I've sourced the tie rod ends but having difficulty with the drag link ends. Thanks.

You can use That number or 923-0179 for more price options. Many MTD parts can substitute the 7 with 9 and get a good number.

Hi. I'm needing to replace the Armature Magneto on my B&S 16 HP engine and I can't locate a part number. Here are a few magnetos I've located...are any of these correct? I'm really interested in the last one (listed on ebay) listed below. Thanks.

 

Genuine Briggs & Stratton Armature Magneto Ignition Coil Part 394891

My hubs have press welded studs. Had to beat the stud out and ended up using a through bolt and nut.

 

The magneto from Ebay may be worth a try at that price but, I have read these have a history of failing. I have installed one of these myself and so far it is working fine. .010 clearance.

Hey, all. Slowly but surely I'm making headway on the 990. I'm moving from the front to the back with my "refurb" and thought I'd post a few pics of how things are coming along. A big chunk of my time has been tied up in refurbishing the dash. Here's what she looked like:

I think she'll last a few more years with all the reinforcement.

I agree nice job on the dash. I'm saving mine until cold weather sets in. Is your dash plate decal silver or is it clear allowing the color of the dash to be seen. I spent a few days this week sand blasting, priming & finish coating my last batch of parts. I'm hoping to start assembling soon.

My dash decal is silver. I got it from a guy online. The first one I received was off by quite a bit and the seller was really responsive and asked for measurements and re - did the decal to near perfection.

Well, I'm making some headway on the 990 project. Starting at the front and working my way back. I've decided to stick with the color I believe was original on this tractor; yellow and black.
