Hi GENTS, I have an Allis 170 with bad brakes. I am totally new to AC, and would not know where to start. I have all the manuals. But I do not have the jacks and cribbing for such a job. I have a local mechanic that could handle this job. What would you estimate for a job as such?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see ..... Don't know how much simpler it gets.... Adjust the brake rods shorter (if needed) and make sure the brake rods are in the lower holes on the pedals.

The price of the brake wear items is easy. Four brake bands......two disc lining kits......four band springs........four drum springs........two axle seals.........two O-rings for the differential carriers. Call an AGCO dealer for prices. Flat rate labor of 8 hrs to replace all of these, as the axle/final drives must be removed/replaced. Hydraulic lever console does NOT have to be removed to do this. If the brakes are steel-on-steel there will be more parts to buy. Are you sure the brakes just don't need to be ADJUSTED ?? Tighten each brake rod a turn at a time until the brake pedals are at the 2 to 3 inch height when applied. Don't twist off the brake rods !!! Brake rods need to be in the LOWER hole with the brake pedal return spring in the UPPER hole.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
