I have an ih624. the brakes are not very good. Quite a lot of travel in the pedals. Pads are probably quite worn, perhaps also the balls. but think that there also might well be dirt, oil and rust on them.
Have tried driving and braking a lot and blowing compressed air. Up into the chambers. Also tried to shove a small wire brush up there between the pads but couldnt.

It aint an easy task getting to them and cleaning and changing the pads. That would ofcause be the correct thing to do.

Something that would really clean would be brake cleaner, I think. But that is strong stuf.
Will it damage pads and perhaps oil seals?

Btw. This model has dry disc brakes.

Brake cleaner won't hurt them. About the only thing it might hurt would be the
paint.

It's near impossible to get all the oil out of brake pads. If there is an
active leak, that will have to be fixed to accomplish anything.

Rust and dirt are generally not a problem. It will eventually clean up with
use. If there is rust, the oil leak must not be too bad.
