I redid mine ,First I just bypassed the hydovac,by plumbing from rebuilt master to rebuilt wheel cylinders.The trouble is you can't press the pedal hard enough for satifactory braking.so then had hydrovac redone and tested vac pump which was still good and holly cow will slide rubber now.Yes it is abit complicated but not very expensive to have redone.Old service manual is very good on system explanation.Heavy lifting to get to wheel cylinders as planetaries come off to get to them.Understand that hydrovac in that era was on a great many trucks...

Dave shoot me your phone number and I will be happy to give you a call to assist you with your brake problem. Dad and just restored and 1200 and corrected the brakes at that time. We used to be a case dealer and are familiar with this system. Nothing to get too excited by as they work good when all things are right.

If you rebuild the motor, you could use hardened seats and valves, and unleaded fuel. But if your old tractor runs good, a simple lead substitute added to the gas is a perfectly reasonable solution. And, if you are like me, your tractor is under cover, but it sits outside. So with every temperature change, the humidity in the air collects in the fuel tank, in the form of water. ...
