Hi. I have a 1966 sears suburban tractor that I am restoring. I am wanting to put new material on the b rake band as the old was worn through. Can anyone tell me what thickness and size I need?

try using the search up top in the sears forum, there should be a couple threads about that already. also check the manual section .

I checked the manual section and there is nothing for my model number there. also, I checked online in a couple other places and checked their manuals. nothing was mentioned about the brake lining. I also checked back posts on this. found 2 threads about the time it took to pull rea end out to replace band, but nothing on the size of the band. went back 20 pages.

Starting on page 4, at Post #50 (about halfway down) - Tahoe starts telling me how he rebuilt his brake band (picture of his with lots of c-clamps around it) and in Post #57 I mention exactly which friction material I bought, and from where, and the dimensions. Starting on page 5, I post pictures of how I rebuilt my brake band.

Tahoe is also working on a nice writup. Currently, he is waiting for a certain staff member to get a chance to read it thru.
Yea, I think he needs fired, getting paid waayyy too much!
