Went for a ride yesterday and realized it would be a good idea to check / adjust if possible / the brakes.

Anyone know if there is a similar tractor which may have a manual available ?

Not likely I'd find anything specific to the Brockway.

Well, maybe, maybe not...
The Sept 2009 newsletter of the Minnesota Valley Antq Farm Power & Machinery club, Montevideo, Minn, had a thumbnail history of the Brockway by...Al Brockway.
Their website is heritagehill.us, and they have a contact button; maybe Al might have some helpful literature or information.
Just out of curiosity, does your unit have the Chrysler Cptn engine, the Herc or the Cont??

I've sent an inquiry to HeritageHill as you suggest.

The tractor that Dad left behind has the Continental engine.

Guess he has no sense of adventure! Get to explore the bottom of the ditch or the neighbors field if the brakes fail.

Just having fun with this post, but on a dead serious note I would be in BIG trouble if I ever had to stop my F20 in a hurry. Behlen road gear will run out at 29 MPH, GPS verified. Hand brakes. ENUF said. DOUG
