I am having trouble getting the top pin out of the transmission housing that holds the top of the brake shoes. The manual says to pry it out. I think it must have been printed when the tractor was 1 year old. Other side came right out. have cautiously applied heat, but do not know how far to go, do not want to hirt housing. How about it Dewey, what do i do?

You can try heating pin and housing then put cold water on just the pin and see if it will budge. If your going to replace the bands and not reline them cut the bands at the pin an get a pipe wrench or good pair of vise grips to turn the pin after the bands are off. I have had to cut the pin and drive the outer portion in to loosen then take the two pieces out with visegrips.

Thanks Craig. We just got it out had to cut the brake bands off, Heated it enough with a torch to get it to budge. Then we cut the center of the pin out, drove the outerside through and pulled the inner piece out with vicegripes. Sounds like you have been through this before.

Likewise, I have had to do same. Cut, drive, and twist inner end out. Don't be bashful.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer.
