Answer....your left side has got oil on the brake disc, that is if you can get a pedal clearance from the footplate? Short term solution that sometimes works..... Find the drain slot under the housing, it will be along the line of the mounting flange and poke out the crud with a piece of wire or even a slim knife blade. Now drive around in high first gear standing hard on that brake to get as much heat into it as possible, thai will possibly burn off the oil for a tempory brake. Long term solution(and the proper one!) Dismantle the half axle off the transmission housing, (using an engine crane) and replace the brake discs, actuator and the seal in the cover plate. Sam

well I had today off and I worked on the brake problem and got the left side to work really great!! I can drag that tire down the driveway just like the right side now!! WOW!! it's really nice to have good brakes!! This MF 175 has a model#32 MF loader on it with loaded tires so I want to be able to stop good when I'm pushing dirt or snow with it.I want to get a set of chains for it as well. It does have a weight block to go on the 3pt hitch.
