Thanks for the replies. I already had the two small inspection covers off - one on top and one on the back. I cleaned the pin with the smaller diameters on each end up with some oil. I reached in the top with one hand and centered the hole in the brake band with the casting. With the other hand I went in through the back inspection hole and inserted the pin. It went right in and the smaller diameters locked into the casting. I screwed up the tightener some to get decent movement of the brake pedal. Tightened up the other side as well. I haven't moved the dozer, but I am sure both brakes are much much better now. Reaching in from the back it feels like there is at least 3/8 to 7/16 inch of brake lining on the steel band. I really wonder if the band tightening bolts loosened up over time. They turned really easy when I tightened the bands up. I have driven this machine down the road 5 miles one way a couple of times over the years. If the bolts turn easily and the brake band was bouncing away going down the road couldn't it tend to back the bolts out with all of the vibration? Then when the left tightener got so loose the pin that holds the band to the casting just slid inward and fell into the case. Anyway I think everything is back in its right place and ready to work. Thanks again.
