Removing hand brake rod out of '38 Allis B

I have begun take the sheet metal off to get painted to automobile finish quality. While I was taking her apart, I started taking the angle iron off that the fender bolts to. There is a rectangular cutout in it for the hand brake. Here is my question, how do I get the hand brake rod out of the braking assembly and remove the cover. The rounded end of the handle is too big to pass through. --John P. Martine

They are threaded and turn right out. (Sure they do after the threads are red hot.) I have twisted one off and stripped the threads on a couple.

If this was a tractor I was going to use I would find a set of foot brakes at a salvage yard. They are easy to put on an they are much handier to use. You could save the hand brakes and put them back on if you decided to fix it up to original for show later

I soaked 'em in PB Blaster for a week and about remembered some long past language until I used my gear puller to push them out from the bottom.

They came right out and pressed right back in tight. Me thinks not all of those "threads" is threads. Could they have done some with press fit and later used threads?

They were threaded, you probly got one that had already had the threads stripped and they were then driven back in. I have a half dozen on more layin around some where. If ya want I will get a thread gage out an let ya know what thread was used.

now i am curious Dick, why have you got all those hand brake levers laying around. Do you convert them to foot, and if so, do you buy or make the parts? I just bought a 40 with hand brakes and am considering if i should change over to foot when rebuilding this summer.

I have changed over a few tractors to foot brakes and I buy boxes of junk parts a auctions. I have three B,s tore down into piles of parts that will get put back togather with foot brakes when I get around to it, maybe some day, if I live long enough. I am stuck on Allis G's for now.

I'm considering a B model presently equipped with hand brakes.

Do you have the parts necessary for a conversion to foot?

If so, what's the price?

Dick, Didn't realize you had changed your "specialty". All I can say is, lucky for the "G" guys, if they get help from you like the "B' guys do, they will have a tremendous resource from which to gain real down to earth information. Even tho I don't have a B or a G, I really enjoy the absolutely clear pictures and descriptions you provide for those who seek answers to meaningful questions.

Today's Featured Article - George's Fordson Major - by Anthony West (UK). This is a bit of a technical info to add on to the article about George's Major in the "A Towny Goes Plowing" article. George bought his Major from a an implement sale about 18 years ago for 200.00. There is no known history regarding its origins or what service it had done, but the following work was undertaken by Harold alone to bring it up to show standard. From the engine number, it was found that the major was produced late 19 ... [Read Article]
