I'm new to the tractor world so some of my questions may sound very dumb to many so please be patient with me. I just bought an Allis CA with a woods belly mower (saw it on this site). It's a nice old tractor, runs and looks good, but very poor braking. If I really push I can get the tractor to slow down. I'm sure they just need adjusting. Can anyone tell me how to adjust the brakes? Also what is the proper point gap. Thanks, Don

Those CA's are fun, easy to work on. On the brakes you can adjust them very easy. You know where the two hole are in the platform and turn the screws that are connected to the brakes. You can do that with a flat screw driver without removing the platfrom.

You might want to put new brakes on it.

If you push on the pedla and there is excess movelement then it need adjusted. If it bottoms out, just dont stop, then they are oil soaked or wornout. like the guys recommended, follow the brake rod back to the rear axle housing. where it connects to an actuator rod you will see an adjustement screw with a big slotted head. turn in clockwise and check pedal movement.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
