How is the 3/8" pivot hole stud for brake bracket attached to frame? Is it welded? I see the hole (see pic 1) which is not drilled thru the frame and have seen pics of the stud being threaded and double nutted and also seen a smooth stud with a hole in the end for a cotter key. I do not have a welder; so could I drill thru the frame and place a 3/8" bolt and a nut on the outside (provided there is clearance behind the brake drum) and install it? Pic of 3/8" stud hole in  frame, then pic with screwdriver in pivot hole showing proper install position and final pic showing threaded stud with cotter key installed. Thanks.

Have you downloaded and studied the manual? If you need a hole in the frame, Why isn't it there already? Be really sure before you do any drilling. That looks similar to the brakes on my Case 222. It drove me crazy for awhile figuring the correct assembly and adjustment. Good Luck, Rick

Rick:

I felt underneath the frame and found a rounded bump. I was just thinking  out loud, because because the outside  hole is shallow, and with my lack of experience, I thought maybe the stud was welded, but could perhaps be drilled out. I have yet to  receive verification that the stud was welded or if there were two (2) implementations; welded solid stud with hole in end for cotter key or welded stud with threads with double nut locknut. Would like to do it the correct way. ken

Rick:

Forgot to mention that I have reviewed several versions of the parts lists and no where can I find reference to the stud that sticks out of the frame. Slowly driving me nuts. ken

I believe it was just press fit. Mine was out of the frame and pin seized into the brake lever, I made a new level and welded a bolt to the frame and used a lock nut to hold it on

At last, some logical info. I noticed a convex bump at the other side of the hole that held the stud. I also saw a pic of a stud with threaded nut and one with a cotter key. I have decided to try to get a stud weld into the hole and use a cotter key to hold it on. Many thanks.
