Sorry for the short post above, but I was tuckered out. Got close to 100° yesterday and very little wind. At least I have a breeze today for the other side. Soaking the brakes in the old gas let them clean up nice. After the gas, they went through some Purple Power then plain water. Before installing the shoes and drum, they got a wash with brake parts cleaner. Think I got this side adjusted pretty close.

The seal was no big problem. Grabbed one of my pry bars and popped it right out. My tool worked great for installing it.

This was really easier than I thought it would be. Should be done by noon and ready to drive.

Slow progress is better than no progress...

I am glad to hear those seals are so easy to replace.

Yeah, not bad at all. Didn't need a puller for anything. Just used the press to pop the old bearings off. New ones tapped right back on.

 

I got out early and tore into the LH side. Here's the drum when I pulled it:

And this is what the brakes looked like:

Starting to go back together here:

This is how well the brakes cleaned up:

Back on all fours and full of fluid:

Drove it around some. Need to adjust the LH brake a little tighter. Other than that, the hydro did fine. Now to see if a leak shows up!

Those are some seriously dirty brake shoes!  Glad everything went as planned.  

 

Is there any linkage connection between the brakes and the hydro on these tractors?  On my cub, when you push the brakes the hydro goes back to neutral.

Same here! And that is working real well for tractor that sat for probably 10 years. The pedal linkage seem to hang, gotta add more lube under there.
