Here is a visual of what you will be dealing with on the brakes.

Your shoes may be OK, but I would bet that your master and wheel cylinders are full of rust.

Ya this tractor sat in a shop for 10 years. Then was moved outside due to storage area needed. It Had a big loader on it. Last years of service was loading silage and cattle hay.

The breaks haven't worked since I got the tractor. Block was full of rust so I ended up putting Merdice acid through block. Going to put water back through system again. If it runs ok Ill change it over to antifreeze. Tried to run motor couple times, kept getting rust in Radiator. Didn't know what to do to get rust out of motor. I figured since I have a little time I would check Breaks out. Need to replace wheels as calcium has eaten wheel up pretty bad. Hoping it wouldn't take a lot to check brake pads.

I had pulled the water pump off and removed the 90 on front of valve head. Was about 2' of rust filled up at back of block. Built a 1/8 coper tube that I could get into back of motor. Shop was plum full of dust when I finished blowing block. Valve head was the same way. Everything I had read on YT said that blowing block out would not fix problem. That is why I tried Merdice Acid. Thanks for all your help, guys.

I have done them, its not a bad task. Remove the tire/rim assy by removing the lugs scattered around the wheel. The big nut comes off the axle next and then a puller will remove the wheel/drum. There are puller bolt holes in the wheel. It is heavy, like 300-400 lbs heavy, so use something to handle it.
What exactly is wrong with your brakes? Could it be possible they need fluid and bleeding or do you know that they are sure enough bad?
