brake pedal fix, help/info wanted, please

Recommended Posts

Hello all, was wondering if anyone could help me out with info or advice on how to go about fixing my brake pedal on my '92 312-8. I don't know if it's just a pin/part that needs replacing, or there is more to it than that...I have hand tools, but am not really mechanically inclined---learning this stuff as I go. Pics/instructions to follow, would be appreciated.

 

My machine is parked/put up for the winter, 'bout 120miles from here; going about lots of this backwards, I know, but I'm trying to build my store of knowledge, for now, Thanks for any and all help.

 

Here is a pic for reference. Dad told me it is a common problem; we just didn't get to it lasttime I was back home, where it is stored currently (after going over fluids, cleaning, etc). I just like things to be "right"...he laughed when I found a replacement NOS hr meter for the pictured empty hole (now since installed),,,to him THAT was an uneeded "bell" (as in, ...whistle).

 

If the mods need to move this post, no problem; I looked around, didn't see a "specific" place that fit better to post my question.

Probably the rod came out or a spring broke.

Here's the manuals to help.

:WRS:             The illustration on page 15 of this manual gives a bit more information on the brakes for your Wheel Horse. Simple hand tools will be sufficient for this job.

The foot running board acts as a stop to keep the pedal coming back like that if I remember correctly.

Lift the pedal up and see if the corner of the running board is bent down. Bend back up and it should restore the stop function.

      I started the restoration in 2009. Had to stop (work and life) finally got it back together last week. It still needs some stuff here and there but the hardest stuff is done

      Hello all - I have a 1990 312-8 that recently started being a pain to shift, and eventually it stopped shifting into 1st and reverse and was hard to get into 2nd and 3rd. After looking at some posts on here I discovered the possibility that a loose shifter could cause this problem. My shifter definitely had a lot of play in it so I proceeded to pull the seat, rear plate and shift plate off the tractor so I could get to the area where the shifter goes into the transmission. I removed the shifter, reseated it and got the dog head screw lined up in the shifter donut and was hoping that would fix the issue, but after getting it all reassembled and trying to shift even into 2nd or 3rd the shifter, while not as sloppy, now just turns side to side - taking it back out and inspecting the shifter I have discovered that the pin which holds the donut in place on the shifter has sheered and the donut is now able to free spin on the shaft. Not too much of a problem as I plan on just pressing the old pin out and replacing, however I am concerned that the ball on the end of the shifter seems to be getting pretty flattened off on the left and right sides of the ball. I tried looking up a replacement on Toro and several other parts websites but I can't find one anywhere - I can get the boot, everyone has those, but no shifter. My question is, does anyone know where I might be able to find a new shifter and more important, is a little flattening on the ball anything to worry about? 
       
      Also, with the shifter out, looking down the hole my transmission looks like it's full of mud! Definitely doesn't look like the gear oil I put in it - anyone know what could be causing the transmission gear oil to be sludging up like that?

      Hello. I recently purchased a 312-8 with blower and dozer blade. I cannot figure out how to hook it up. Please help me!

      Can 2 312-8 transmissions be linked together?

      My husband was a long time member of the forum, some of you might have known him. I am looking to sell his wheel horse. I believe it is a 1990 Toro/WH 312-8 Series with a 42" Deck. It has minimal wear and tear. Was running recently, but not now, however I don't know the reason. Otherwise in good shape. Beloved by my husband around our property. Asking for $500 or Best Offer.
