Where do you access the adjustment for brakes? I have adjusted right side steering linkage and it has about the same pull and feel as left side now. But I still dont have as much brake on right side. It turns ok but not on a dime and the foot brake barely stops the machine. I've read on here about adjusting the bands. Can anyone point in me in the right direction on this? Thanks.

I'm a little rusty on the wet-clutch 450s, but as I recall there are bung plugs on each side - like you'd find on a old 55 gallon drum. Unscrew them, and you'll see a round knob with serrations on it. Originally there was a spring-loaded self-adjuster dog that rode on the wheel, but we removed a lot to them on the machines we sold. That wheel gets turned in, i.e. clockwise to tighten the initial adjustment on the brake band. Turn it in tight, and then back it off one turn. This only determines the installed diameter of the brake band, i.e. the initial adjustment, and has nothing to do with adjusting the relationship between the steering levers, and the relationship between steering-clutch declutching and when the brakes start to grab. Obviously, that must be adjusted correctly, and the steering must declutch before the brake grabs, or the machine will be working against itself.

Today's Featured Article - Good As New - by Bill Goodwin. In the summer of 1995, my father, Russ Goodwin, and I acquired the 1945 Farmall B that my grandfather used as an overseer on a farm in Waynesboro, Georgia. After my grandfather’s death in 1955, J.P. Rollins, son of the landowner, used the tractor. In the winter 1985, while in his possession the engine block cracked and was unrepairable. He had told my father ... [Read Article]
