I did it last year in a day losing the brake linkages wasn't handy all sized up and lift the cab but you do need a engine lift

Depends...........

If it's an open station, no roll bar, you have an engine crane or something handy to lift the axle housings... and you don't mind cutting the old U-bolts off the fenders... and you have an air gun of sufficient capacity... you can probably do each side in 3-4 hours provided you don't go off on any tangents (axle seals) and everything goes right.
If you're dealing with a cab, and especially with a loader... all bets are off. Time will then be determined in terms of how long it takes you to wrestle that stuff out of your way.

Sorry, didn't notice you said "disk brakes" in the first post. Please disregard my previous post, as I can't edit it.

All of the responses that you have gotten so far assume that it is a 3 cylinder 4000. If it is the earlier 4 cylinder 4000 then it is much easier in that they are dry drum brakes like a 1960's car.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Notice that the younger guy is working hard enough that despite being able to see their breath he needed to remove his sweatshirt.

I haven't done it.
There's a pretty good video on youtube where they do the brakes on a 4100 = same as a 4600 = same as a 4000 Couple of German guys iirc. They do the whole job at about 3X camera speed so the video is just a few minutes.
It didn't look too hard.
If the link below doesn't work just search for Ford 4100 brakes .
Hard to do from this phone.

Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
