Gary, on top of the differential housing, you will find two covers, each held on by two bolts... you will most likely have to remove the seat mounting bracket to remove the right cover...If the tractor has been sitting a while, you will most likely find the brake housings under these covers to be plugged solid with mouse nests..they can get in there from the convenient "mouse holes" that Allis cast into the bottom of the casting...These mouse nests are bad for trapping moisture and rusting up the brakes..If this the case, clean up the mess as good as you can and spray the links with a penetrating oil and work the brake pedals back and forth till they free up...If the wheel "locked up" from just sitting for a period of time, and ran ok before sitting; this is most likely what you will find....Let us know what you find....BDT

First off buy a manual. Next yes theres a cover over each brake that you can pull off and look at whats going on. But its strange if you have had it for years you should have seen the cover years ago

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
