Which series D17? I think series one brakes were like the WD45- easy to replace bands. Series three had drum/disc combo, and requires pulling the axle to replace. Maybe you can adjust yours enough to work properly, without having to replace parts.

Had this happen several times to the 45 I used to use on the farm where I worked as a kid. Had enough power you never noticed the brakes were on, till the smoke started. We always just took up the brakes if they needed it, once in a while replaceing them. Once a brake drum "blew up" Don't remember if it had to do with the brakes being on at the time, but probably being heated super hot a few times didn't help too much.
