Hi, I have a non-running 1959 D-17 that I bought last spring, and has been sitting since, wanting to pull it into the shop to repair and repaint this winter, but after sitting, the right rear wheel does not turn, it just slides. What might be causing this? thanks

It was the brakes, I pryed them away from the drum, and it rolled great. It is now in the shop trying to bring it back to life...I want to remove the belt pulley assy, does anyone have the cover that replaces it? thanks for your help with the brake problem.....

KISS formula. Thaw it out- if it still doesn"t turn- maybe the brake is binding. If so, take off the cover, loosen the band. Simple things first.

Theres a lot of things that can cause that and some if you do it will make you kick your self. First off make sure the brake isn't lock in the down position which happens a lot because people lock them down when parked so they don't roll. Also the brake could have rusted to the drum and that will lock it up. Water in the brake area or rear end or transmission can also cause that if its cold enough out to freeze the water. Some times pulling it back wards instead of forward will brake it loose or doing a push pull sort of action will pop it free. Or if you can warm up the rear end and if its ice that will some times free them up

Depending on location and if you have water in tranny or rear end it may be frozen. Couls put it on car dollies and move it.

more than likely, the brake is stuck.
Remove the top cover and look inside when you move the brake pedal. May have to loosen adjustment screw and pry the brake shoes away from the drum.

Best to get a shop manual for it.

Today's Featured Article - Measuring with Calipers - by Staff. The legs of inside calipers are curved outward at the extremities to facilitate measuring small holes, while outside caliper legs have a large curve inward to increase their capacity for large work. Firm-joint calipers are adjusted approximately by the hands and then set to the feel of the work by tapping them on a metal surface. It is a common practice when opening calipers by this means to tap the top of the joint. It is better, if possible, to tap the inside of the legs, as repeated blo ... [Read Article]
