TD340 brakes

I recently bought a td340, and I have gone through and adjusted every thing according to the manuel. However the brakes seem to work intermitantly. The dozer will turn great when you first start it up but the brakes will begin to fade after a few minutes of work. the dozer sat for a few years and I thought maybe the brakes just needed some use to knock the corrosion off but they are not getting any better. Does this mean it probably needs new brakes and does the track have to come off? It has new pads on the panatery rotors, these seem to be much easier to replace.

I don't have my machine or manuals where I am just now, but I can't imagine how you could get to the brakes without taking off the chains and then the sprocket section. I would first make sure the drain hole is open in the bottom of the brake housing. Mine have dangling pins in the hole to keep them from getting gunked up. Then if there's any fluid leakage through worn seals from the transmission housing into the brake housing, it will drain out and not affect the brake action.

I should also have mentioned that I got my best braking action by experimenting with the linkages and not just by following the owner's manual literally. Perhaps linkage wear is part of the reason.
