I got it taken care of...she finally has brakes again. Although I did cheat and reuse the new brake shoes that were on it. I heated them up and got the oil out of them. Yes I know I should have gotten a new set...but I"m off work right now so I just have to do the best I can with what I have. I read on here where John(UK) had said that when they used silicone instead of the paper gaskets on the backing plate you could not get a proper torque on the studs because of the silicone giving. After working on mine I can say that"s true because none of the studs were tight at all.

I think that you may find that when the Brakes heat up any oil left in the linings will come up to the surface and you will have a lack of brakes again. This has been tried many times before and everyone thought they had managed to get the oil out of the linings by using various methods and solvents etc, but we never had one that didn't fail. If you really MUST use sealant on the gaskets, you need to use some very thin sealant, that would squash out easier than silicone and would not alter the thickness of the gaskets as that would alter the end float. The problem is with using that, if you have to repair it at any time, then it takes an awful lot of cleaning to get it off...John(UK)

I did not use any sealant. Just a thin smear of grease to hold the gaskets in place until I got the axle back in. I will get another set of brake shoes in a few weeks. I go back to work after next week, but I needed my tractor to rake hay is why I heated them with a torch and reused them. It"s not the only tractor I"ve got that needs brakes. My MF 175 needs them to but I"m thinking i will do the wet brake conversion on it. You are lucky on that side of the pond that you got the later 100 series with wet brakes...we didn"t get them on this side.

Well that makes a change for us to get something that you didn't, we always feel like the poor Grease is fine on gaskets, it's just sealant that can cause problems. With the disk brakes, always adjust them when they are hot because everything expands.Leave plenty of free play.2.5", can't be sure on that but I think it was. John(UK)

I have to admit when I watch some of those old Ferguson and Massey Ferguson films that I have, I get jealous sometimes. We didn"t get wet brakes til later in the 200 series, and you got the TED20"s and such. I have never seen one in person. I imagine there are some here in the US but they must have been brought over.

I only have had dealings with one in the USA, I think there may be a couple in Canada too, but they are few and far between because of the shortage of fuel for them. Kerosene was not really suitable, to burn that you needed a Zero octane engine, Ferguson did have them but they nearly all went to hot climates. They must have made a TO version of the TED and it was called the TOD, but no-one I know has ever seen one.I have a list for the parts that are different to the gas tractor, but its only the engine that is different..John(UK)
