Hi there,

I am in the process of restoring a 1949 farmall cub and have reached a roadblock. When we received this tractor, the left brake pedal was hanging down; thinking that the linkeage to the brake band was missing. Though when we took apart most of the rear of the tractor we discovered that the casting that holds the brake band is broken on the left final drive AND differential. My grandfather wants to attempt fixing the differential and we would have to buy a new final drive.
Today he mentioned the idea of a brake band that would not have to attach to the final drive or differential at all. (such as in the picture) would this work to replace the old brake bands? And would it work when backing down a hill?

If i cant do this i'll have to buy a whole new differential.

Any info at all would be great!

The band shown has three points of pivoting. The link to the pedal to the right end, the primary pivot pin attached to the housing and anchors the fixed end if the band, and the left pivot that pulls on the movable end of the band causing it to tighten. This type of brake works better forward than rearward, but is effective and usable either way. I do not under stand the idea that this is not attached. All brake systems must have a solid connection to a backing plate, or fixture to prevent the friction material from rotating. jim
