I'm posting this for a friend that doesn't have a computer.
Anyway the right brake on his 666 International is extremely touchy even with the slightest touch of the peddle. He says they are band brakes and it started this summer out of the blue. Any ideas?

I know when I tore down the brakes on my 450 I was totally amazed at the amount of dirt, crud, dirt dauber nest, grass, and other crud that came out of them. There was no way the brakes could operate correct on my tractor, it was packed in there TIGHT! I cleaned up the housing, the roller balls, the springs and replaced the disc's because I didn't want to do this again in a cpl years. They now work good, locking up the tires with plenty of petal left.
Bottom line...a good cleaning probably isn't a bad idea.

Don't forget the rubber "dust seal" cups that the brake rod passes through. Keeps almost all of that crud out.

Might just find them high and dry. Not unusual for those brakes to be grabby. The removal of asbestos in the linings made them a real pain. A good cleaning and proper adjustment with the shim packs and fine adjustments is probably what is needed. Nice thing about those models is that you can adjust for proper running clearance with shims where on older model IH disc brakes you had to machine housings to accomplish that. Still fought them though when the linings were changed to meet new standards.

I'll probably get cussed out for this but I have salvaged several disc brakes that were oil soaked by heating them with a small propane torch. You can burn off the oil and leave the discs in very good condition as long as you don't overdo it and there is plenty of lining left.

Thats what I told him I think it would be (bad seal) but I don't know much about that model so I figured I'd ask. I also thought it would be a disc style on something from tjat year of tractor. Thanks for the reply.

They ARE disc brakes, with shims for adjustment. Best to get a service manual..

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
