Great pictures of the process.  Thanks for sharing.  I have one of Bob's linings to put on yet.  :)

Glad you're able to stop now, just don't forget and slam down on that brake pedal and get launched over the hood of your  :wh:.            :lol:

Not a joke.   I'm able to lock the rear wheels with only a little effort.   Much better than planning stops ten feet in advance. ;-)

I know this thread's over a year old but thanks again for the great pics. I'm about to order a lining too.

I'm curious to know... Given the fact that the old lining appears to be nearly full thickness, what causes the extreme pedal push effort?

Do the linings age?

Foreign materials such as oil?

Thanks in advance.

When you get the old lining off, you will notice that it is shiny. This is due to oil and dirt building up on the surface. Over time, it gets very slick from pressure and heat. Once you have the brake band removed, clean the drum well, and break the glaze on it with fine sand paper. If it is wet with oil, you may need to replace the oil seal on the brake shaft.

Ah yes... ok.

It is shiny but I don't think it has any oil on it.

I'll double check.

Thanks !

I have taken the glaze off brake linings with a belt sander - it does help but a new lining will be like night and day , for the price you'd be surprised to see how it really was designed to work and they were quite effective .

Wish my older Auto models had the external brakes , too bad all the models didn't have them .

      Hello all, I have a 312-8 and slight problem with the braking system... As my last wheelhorse didn't have brakes I want to make sure this one does rolling down the side of the mountain is only fun for the first ten feet. Anyways my brakes currently work well for the tractor or tractor with a heavy load behind but the problem is is that if I try and brake lightly it surges and rips the lawn that I always replace.  Is there a way I can correct the problem with out buying new band or drum?  There pretty costly... At least to me they are. Thought about using a piece of pvc with sand paper around to sand the band down a little bit because I don't think the drum would warp would it?

      I have a d-200 here in shop. first time working on something this big. customer says when brake is applied the tractor still rolls ??? I noticed when brake is applied transmission shifts to neutral. should tractor stop immediately??? is there an adjustment??? I found the owners manual but a little vague.... unit does not have the brake kit on it
