Good day all, long time, no talk. Been working a lot. I am replacing the brakes on a early model, tall hooded 830 and they are shot. Both sides are completely shot and totally soaked in oilnad dirt. I cleaned the weep holes under the bearing carriers/ brake plates that the slined shaft comes out of the tractor. I will be cleaning them with brake cleaner. My question is how can the oil leak be fixed or can it be fixed? Can the carriers be removed to replace it, looks like an o-ring maybe or It is just something that was caused from the weep holes being clogged though one side was not clogged to badly.
Any help woud be appreciated if someone has any experience with this.
Regards,
FE

Unbolt the carrier plates and remove them being carefull to not damage the shims behind them. Each side has two seals in the plates. Remember to put the shims back on the side they were removed from when reinstalling. The seals are pricey, but without replacing them the new brakes won't work well for long.

Sounds like your brakes are the same as on our 430 triple-range that I fixed recently. The first time I found they were full of oil/grease (some previous owner must have put a new seal in and rolled half the lip doing it) and I just cleaned it up and put it back together trying to be cheap, but that didnít last long and they were barely working as before. So a few weeks ago I got the new seals and brake linings and tore into it. Also, you can take the brake housing and the carrier plate to an automotive machine shop or someone with a flywheel grinder and have them resurfaced. I work at a machine shop so I did mine myself, as well as one half of the brake drum the 430 is equipped with that I put in a lathe to clean it up a little and take the polish off. Now I can take this tractor down the road at 26mph and with a little effort I can slide the thing down the road to a stop. They do engage gently, not just locking up. Good luck!

Fred, You can possibly save the old disc if they are worth saving. Had a 930 that the core plug leaked on the bull pinion. Cleaned first with brake clean then baked @ 350 degrees til they quit smoking, roughed them with some real coarse hardwood floor sandpaper seems as though it was about 20 grit. Still using them today. Tom

Thanks for the replies. What is the easiest way to remove the plates? I tried to remove the plates and can't get them to budge. Would jacking up the axles getting the weight off of them help with them freeing up to remove? Please advise if you or someone may know what is the best route to take.
