I am in the middle of a brake job on my 300U it sounds like I have the same design. I would suggest you take the brakes apart before you order parts. I found a broken spring, and a frozen link on one side, and the other side was loaded with hydraulic oil. I may have my brake disks reworked and I might have them put a bit more meat on them than original. My housings are worn down a bit so I will get to the end of my adjustment range before I get to the end of my brake disks. hope your brakes were not as bad as mine.

I bought new pads from my IH dealer and if I remember right I think they cost me about $120. I use break cleaner in spray cans and wear a mask when I do brakes.

If the bull pinion shaft oil seals are leaking any oil, be sure to replace them. Nothing can ruin a new brake job faster than smearing oil all over the discs.
By the way, the new discs still use asbestos!

The Super C has disk brakes. There are 2 disks on each side that rotate between stationary plates that are pressed against the rotating disks when you apply the brakes. The disks slide on splined shafts that are extensions of the pinion gear shaft that drives the bull gear in the transmission. The brakes are not difficult to take apart and repair. A harder job will be to replace the pinion shaft seals if they happen to be leaking and getting oil on the brakes. If the brake disks need relining, you can take them to your local clutch/brake shop and likely they will reline the disks for you a lot cheaper than you can buy new disks. You can get new disks from case/IH.

Asbestos,thanks for the tip.I guess blowing the brake dust off with compressed air would have been a pretty dumb idea.Don't think the neighor would like that.
