I just bought a "51 TO-30 and the brakes do not stop the tractor. They appear to slow it down if I really stand on the pedal, but otherwise won"t halt it (especially in gear). No grinding, screeching, powder or any other sign of the shoes/drums being bad. I"m guessing it just needs adjusting/tightening.
I"m completely new to working on tractors, so a simple how-to would be really helpful.
