When I got my Montgomery Ward we figured out pretty quick that the previous owner had removed the brake drum (I have it, it was under the seat), but before I reinstall it I have noticed that the brake band is bare, what material/process would be best to reline it? I need to have working brakes as it will be used on hills regularly.

Several folks have done this in the last few months. Shouldn't be hard to find a thread on it.

And you can use JB Weld to glue it on! Works good. Just need lots of clamps.

Instead of using a lot of clamps, I use the drum itself.

Wrap a piece of wax paper around the drum, coat the lining/band with your preferred adhesive, wrap the assembly around the wax paper/drum, and bolt or clamp the ends together until the adhesive is set.

This would be easier since your drum is off the tractor.

Hope this helps someone,

Dave

That is a great idea, I've ordered some lining, should be here tomorrow.

Should work a treat! I had access to a bunch of clamps for mine. I'll keep this trick in mind.

Makes sense for me as my brake drum is currently under the seat in the tool box.

If the drum is easily accessible, why not use it! A pulley could be used in a pinch.

This is what I have ended up with, not perfect but it will keep me from killing myself on the hills here.0521172300.jpg 0521172300a.jpg

Thanks, I use the brake drum but still had to clamp it to get it right.
