Ford 1500 Brake Question

Are the brakes on a Ford 1500 wet or dry? I've been looking at the parts diagram and I can't figure it out.

I don't know anything about those little Shibaura made Fords, but looking at the parts pages for the 1500, there is some sort of clutch on one side of the differential. Maybe the clutch material is what is braking down and clogging the filter.

Thanks Sean,

I see the clutch you are referring to. That must be part of the differential lock system? You engage a clutch to lock the rear wheels?

Thanks Rick.

I'm working with a guy who is having hydraulic problems with his Ford 1500 (has loader and sometimes a backhoe attached). He already replaced the pump ($$$). His hydraulic filter/screen gets dirty every 4-5 hours of operation. It gets dirty enough that all hydraulics slow down, that's how he knows he needs to clean it. He has changed the fluid completely 4 times now but still gets junk in the filter.

The only thing I can think of is wet brake disintegration. But you and others tell me it has dry brakes.

Brakes are indeed dry.

If you have continual plugging of the filter, and it's not metallic, then it about has to be cylinder packing material from the loader or backhoe. Do any cylinders leak down?

Thanks Bern,

I've passed your question regarding cylinder leak down to him.

In the differential lock parts diagram, Sean pointed out a clutch in the system. Do they use a clutch to lock the rear wheels? Could this be the source of debris plugging his filter/screen?

Yes, there is a diff lock on this tractor, but it's a dog clutch, meaning the parts are 100% metal. That's not your source of plugging.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
