I'm having a problem with the rear brakes on my 1950 WD that I'm hoping someone can help me with.

At least three times now my I have tried to get the brakes adjusted properly (using both the owner's and shop manual's procedures), and they still don't work. If they are set where they should be, the left one locks up and starts smoking. If they are backed out at all, the brakes are essentially not grabbing at all. I would try to put new pads on, except I am afraid that will just make them grab even more. What am I doing wrong with this?

The brake linings are very likely the problem- they can get glazed and you get poor braking. One side may be worse than the other. No adjustment fixes that. Biggest problem is getting the lower pin out. Get the I&T AC-11 service manual for details. Several fix helps in archives. I like my idea- drill a 3/4 inch hole in a flat iron, weld it to the pin, apply candle wax as it cools, use the iron as a lever to wiggle the pin, and hammer on it to remove. Grind off the weld, re-use the pin, use Never-Seize on it to make future removal easy.

We have two types of industry up here, one being "Forestry" (Wood Products) and the other "Farming" (Potatoes). There is no shortage of farm tractors and equipment around here! I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
