Case 450 dozer left brake not working and I don't think it has worked for a while. I got this dozer recently. The hydraulic part of the braking system works and so does the slave cylinder. It de-clutches the drive transmission but the left brake wont engage even with the adjusting screw fully tightened. I think the problem is in the braking housing within the brake shoe mechanism. Any thoughts or advice on taking apart? Any thoughts on other possibilities or common causes of them not working?
I cnat tell from the parts diagram how the brake actually slows the track--it does not show a shaft that it works on.
