Howdy! Best of luck with your brake work. I had one on my WD that like to drove me crazy. We sprayed it with every penetrating liquid known to man, used heat, beat it with a half-dozen different sized hammers, and even tried freezing the pin in dry ice to try to get it to shrink up and gain us a little room. Nothing worked. We eventually cut the brake drum into small pieces so we could take the axle housing off that side ( won't come off until you do ) This pin was stuck on the inside( rear differential ) Once the axle housing was off we used a pipe wrench to force it to turn until we could twist it out. What a mess! Got a couple ideas that I picked up the hard way. First, on my WD there was a small inspection holeat the bottom of the housing the pin runs through. Stopper that sucker up and fill the brake compartment full of you favorite soaking stuff ( WD40, Marvel )Second when you get it apart, LIGHTLY grind the pin down where it seized, it will be easy to use the old pin as a model. This will not hurt the action of that pin as all it does is provide a pivot for the brake shoes. Last coat that sucker with never-seize before you put it back. Your great grandchildren will be able to take it apart with a pair of plyers. Best of luck, it can be a bear of a repair.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
