Case 430 Parking Brake

On the case 430, the brake pedal is cogged. If you are to push it down there's a little lever you can engage that holds the break down. My brakes don't puch down very far, and therefore don't lock up and can't get it to park. What's up with my brakes. They could be worn and tightned up the best they could, because they do lock up the wheels, but that's only after engaging it about 1". Thanks. Paul

I've got a Case 431L with the same parking brake. I've found that if I stand on the brake pedal, preferably on the right side where the ratchet is located, I can exert enough pressure to lock up the brakes. It's that last notch that's critical. Tractor even stalls if I forget to remove brake.

According to the service manual, the brake pedal free travel should be 1 1/4- 1 3/4 inches. Maybe yours are too tight. The brake pivot connects to an adjustable threaded rod immediately below the pedal which actuates the brakes. Maybe try adjusting those rods for more freeplay.

Thanks, will look at that next time out at the shed. Can't wait to see the ground dry up a bit to get it out. Paul
