Yes, it does look like a lot of work! I will try the surface grinder idea once I get the tractor running.

to get the pins out, remove the seat and look at the back side of the BLIND HOLE. Guess about where it is and drill a 3/8 hole about 1/4 inch deep and you will hit the end of the pin. YOu need an air chisle and a punch on the back side to push them out. 1000 quick blows with WD40 penetrant and the come fast. C clips are on the insides first ! Grab one end of the brake shoe with a #9 wire, tie it to a 3/4 ton chain fall on a roof rafter and pull.... helps to get the mouse nest all out first.

I have three of the four pins out (both on the left side and one on the right side). If I cannot get the 4th pin out (why is it always the last bolt or pin that is so hard?), I will drill the hole. I do have the clamps off...they are wire clamps...I have not seen something like that before.

The last pin is loose, just hard to get it out. Oh yes, I am having trouble getting the adjusting screw out too. I tried my impact screwdriver but no luck. I put a lot of penetrating oil on it and letting it soak overnight. I don't have much for heat...just a propane torch..but I did try some heat too.

Good tip on getting the brake out. The brake on the otherside had rusted in two pieces, which made it easier to get out. Yes, lots of junk on both sides.

The last bolt or pin is the hardest because == If it was the first one you wouldn't be to the last one yet. (:^D

Take a trip thru the pictures at the link to see how I did one years ago.

Nice pictures. Hey, why don't I just take my tractor over to you and you take all the pictures you want while restoring it! Looks a lot easier .

Thanks for the pictures.
