is the pto stub shaft out the back of the tractor bent.. or do you have a bent or damaged orc or extender stub the issue? post a pic if you aren't sure.

i'd for sure *TRY* to adjust the brakes before I did anything else. my 660 had nearly new shoes on it.. and simply needed adjustment, as did my 8n and naa.

jack up a side, and run the start wheel with a big flatblade screwdriver to just where the brake drags, then back off. do the same to the other side. adjust the brake pedal clevis if you want the pedals about the same height.

if there is oil leaking from the drums.. you got a bad seal *AND* are probably overfull on fluid.

There's a good chance your brakes are metal-to-metal. If you see signs of oil leaking out of the brake drums, you'll need axle seals as well. The only way to find out is to pull the drums, which is probably easier said than done.

Brakes are old style drum, you can adjust through the slot, hopefully the adjuster is not seized, probably a good idea to take off the wheel, remove the drum, might need to use a rubber, nylon or similar hammer to loosen it up. Once done you can see what the brake shoes look like, as well as everything else, do not adjust with the drum off, you may not get it back on, might need to clean the threads on the adjuster and or free it up.

Also, the actuating cam on the end of the linkage that contacts the shoe, may be worn, thus not moving the shoe against the drum the way it should, those can be built back up by welding.

I'll certainly leave the detail answers to the experts, but since they just helped me remove mine to change a seal...i'll tell you what they told me.

1. Drain the fluid

2. Undo the four bolts on the retainer plate cover around the PTO shaft

3. Pull straight out.

Not sure if a bent PTO shaft leads to other possible damage inside or not. I'll stop here and let the experts comment.

Good luck!

No the shaft is bent not the ORC . It sounds pretty simple to change out is it ??? As for the brakes if i can not adjust them they may have to stay the way they are i do not use this tractor much. Thanks
