TO-20 brake question

The right brake isn't working. It seems like there isn't much travel when I push on the pedal and I push pretty hard. Any ideas? I've done many a brake job on cars and trucks, but never on a tractor. Just wondering if there is an adjustment I am missing? It used to work. Doesn't seem to engage at all now.

Well, since you know your way around brakes, you know by now that there is an adjustment inside the drum accessible by screwdriver, etc. But I'm thinking that's not what you are asking. Sounds like the linkage has a bind. Probably the reason no one has jumped in is we don't know enough about the problem.

Jack it up. Wrap a bungee around the brake pedal holding it up. Adj the brakes to not turn. Back off about three notches until they turn. Your now adjusted. If they still don't work, they are either oil soaked or glazed. Sure Seals might be in order if oil soaked.
